  • VFR's Whole Wheat Pie Crust
  • 6 Granny Smith Apples or other tart apples cored, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 of a cup 40 g Whole Wheat Flour (sifted)
  • 1/2 of a cup 70 g Whole Cane Sugar or Sucanat
  • 3/4 of a teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 of a teaspoon All spice
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon Nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Prepare whole wheat pie crust according to instructions or use your own.
  2. Preheat oven to 410°F (210°C).
  3. Mix apples together with flour, sugar, cinnamon, all spice, and salt.
  4. Fill pie with apple mixture. Place in fridge.
  5. Take remaining half of the previously made pie crust and roll it out thinly on a lightly floured, flat surface. Try not to touch the dough very much as you don't want the butter to melt.
  6. Cut the dough into 1 inch long slices. Weave a lattice crust with the slices. Cutting off the edges of the dough when they are too long.
  7. Bake pie for 15 minutes at 410°F (210°C), then lightly cover with aluminum foil and cook for another 50 minutes at 375°F (190°C). Remove apple pie from oven. If pie is not golden brown yet, return it to the oven and bake (without aluminum foil) for an additional 5 - 10 minutes.
  8. Allow apple pie to fully cool before cutting and serving.

Recipe Notes

1.) Make sure your apples completely fill the pie plate and almost form a small mound. When the apples are cooking they will sink a bit.2.) If you don't want to make a lattice crust you can simple place another rolled out disk to fit a 9 inch pie form and place it on top of the apples. Be sure to cut slits into the pie crust for steam vents.3.) Whole cane sugar can be substituted with white sugar. Use 2/3 of a cup of white sugar then.4.) Whole Wheat Flour can easily be substituted with all purpose flour, spelt flour, or your favorite gluten-free flour mix.
