Rescued Apple Pie is near Perfect
For the month of January, SPUD is launching a fundraiser for the Food Stash Foundation, an organization that reduces the environmental impact of food waste and helps feed those facing food insecurity. This organization keeps good, surplus food from going to waste and deliver it where it’s needed. Check out this DIY Banana Smoothie Recipe and the DIY Rescued Apple Pie, both recipes allow you to fight food waste, with all proceeds from the sale of imperfect fruit purchased in the Lower Mainland being donated to the Food Stash Foundation. Lots of suggestions for extra ingredients on the shopping list too!

Rescued Recipes – Apple Pie
An easy, planet friendly apple crisp recipe made from rescued apples.
4 imperfect apples (cored and sliced)
1/3 cup Maple Syrup (divided)
1 tbsp Coconut Flour (or other flour)
1/4 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1 cup Oat Flour (see note)
3/4 cup Oats
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/3 cup Coconut Oil
1 cup Ice Cream (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350oF (177oC). Place coconut oil in fridge to chill.
- Add your sliced apples, 1/3 of the maple syrup, the tablespoon of coconut flour and applesauce to a medium bowl and toss until coated. Set aside while you make the crust.
- Add the oat flour, oats, the remaining 2/3 of the maple syrup, baking powder and sea salt to a different bowl and stir until combined.
- Remove coconut oil from the freezer and add to mixture. Use your fingers to work it in until coarse crumbs form and the mixture holds together when pressed.
- Remove a 1/3 of the crumbs for the topping and pour the remaining crumbs into the bottom of a tart pan or pie dish. Press the dough evenly into the pan.
- Pour the apples over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining crumble evenly over the apples.
- Bake for 40 to 45 min or until the crust is lightly brown. Check at 20 to 30 minutes if the tart is getting too brown. If so, tent with foil to prevent burning.
- Scoop into bowls and serve with coconut ice cream.
Homemade Oat Flour: Pulse oats in a food processor until oats resemble fine crumbs. 1.5 cups of oats will yield approximately 1 cup of oat flour.
Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Freeze for up to two months. Because what’s better than rescued leftovers!
