Vegan Apple Pie

I like anyone, enjoy a warm apple pie on a cold winters evening. Sitting by the fire, smelling cinnamon & spices fill the lounge room, I just can’t wait to bite into that crisp pastry and take the first bite. So when my partner asked me to whip one up for him last night I thought, why not? Surely there’s a way to make it dairy free and delicious. Well there is, give the recipe below a go and hopefully it’ll warm you up just like it did us.

This recipe has all the hallmarks of a classic apple pie — it’s crisp, naturally sweet, and is filled with beautiful mouth-watering spices.
