High Protein Apple Pie Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 2 tablespoons Bulk Nutrients Muscle Food 101 in Limited Edition Apple Pie flavour
  • 1 cup (120g) white whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (56g) cold butter – Cut into cubes
  • 2 teaspoons low fat milk
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1-2 teaspoon ice water

For the filling:

  • 3 granny smith apples – Diced
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar

Directions

  1. To make the base: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease two mini pie tins.
  2. Place all ingredients except the water in a food processor. Pulse to bring together until it has a bread crumb appearance. If it seems too dry, add half the water and repulse. Repeat if necessary. Wrap in cling wrap and place in the fridge to firm up.
  3. Remove from the fridge.
  4. Place dough between two sheets of baking paper and roll to 1cm thickness.
  5. Cut out dough according to pie tin size (we have used mini tins) and press in.
  6. Set aside remaining dough.
  7. Place in the oven with weighted balls or uncooked rice on top for 10 minutes.
  8. To make the filling: Dice the apples.
  9. Place in a medium heated pot with cinnamon, coconut sugar, clove and nutmeg and stew until soft. Set aside.
  10. When cooled spoon apple filling into pie bases.
  11. Gather remaining dough and re-roll if required.
  12. Cut out ½-1cm thick strips.
  13. Use these to create a lattice design on the top of the pies.
  14. Brush the top with whisked egg or melted butter.
  15. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  16. Best enjoyed warm with ice-cream.
