  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry or any other flour
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil warmed
  • Water
  • 8 cups apples, cut into chuncks
  • Zest of an orange
  • 1⁄2 cup maple syrup
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon each cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons kuzu root dissolved in 3 tablespoons apple juice


Crumb Topping:
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour or part unbleached white pastry flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil warmed
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts



  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C or 375F.
  2. Mix pastry ingredients starting with flours, salt and baking powder.
  3. Add the oil to the flour, and mix with fingers so that it resembles bread crumbs. Add enough water to create a moist dough. Roll out dough to fit a 9 inch (oiled) pie plate.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  5.  Place the apples, orange zest, maple syrup, salt, spices, juice and apple cider vinegar into a pan. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil on a medium flame.
  6. Cook for 10 minutes or until apples are soft but hold their shape. Stir now and again.
  7. Add the diluted kuzu and mix gently. When sauce has thickened remove from heat.
  8.  Place the ingredients for crumb topping into a bowl and mix to form a crumbly texture. Transfer apples to pastry shell. Sprinkle crumb on top of filling.
  9. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Allow pie to cool before serving.
