Ingredients

  • Gluten-Free Pie Crust
  • 1 tbsp Nutiva Organic Ground Chia Seed Organic Chia Seed
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Teff Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (melted) Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pie Filling
  • 1 tbsp Nutiva Organic Ground Chia Seed Organic Chia Seed
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 5 cups Apple (peeled & sliced)
  • 1 tbsp Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. Soak the milled chia seeds in water for both the crust and filling, keeping each portion separated.
  3. Lightly oil a 9-inch deep dish pie pan on the bottom and up the sides with 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil.
  4. To make the crust, place the rolled oats in a food processor and grind to a flour. Transfer to a large mixing bowl along with the teff flour, the rest of the melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla, sea salt and chia (water) gel, and mix well. Reserve ½ cup of the mixture to use for the crumb topping.
  5. Transfer the rest of the dough to the prepared pie pan and use your fingers to press it out in an even layer over the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan. Poke a few holes in the dough with a fork.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes, until it loses it shine.
  7. While you bake the pie crust, cook the apples, coconut sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium-size sauce pan over medium heat. Simmer stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes, until apples soften. Add and stir in the chia and water mixture. Taste and add more cinnamon or coconut sugar, if desired.
  8. Remove the crust from the oven. Pour the filling into the crust and crumble the reserved dough over the top. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the crumbs turn a slightly darker brown.
  9. Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

    Since I have seen conflicting opinions about the safety of teff for those with celiac disease, this is not an option I would chose. What would you suggest as an alternative. Thanks.
