Apple Pie with Thermomix Instructions

 apple pie


If I had to pick our families favourite recipe today, in the midst of winter, I would choose this.

I would pick it because I have my biggest girl beside me, slicing apples. I have my superhero popping the ingredients into the processor and the littlest one is climbing on benches and chairs to peer over our shoulders.

I distract the three of them as the pie cooks and then say ‘not just yet’ countless times as they excitedly wait for it to cool. When I can hold them off no longer we all sit on the floor with bowls and  spoons in our hands and excitedly tuck in.

I take a minute to bask in the warmth of the pie and the warmth of my babies and for a second the moment is perfect.

Right now I can picture this vividly. It is a scene I know well. But in a year’s time my superhero may not want to bake with Mum, by baby may have outgrown her endless curiosity and my biggest girl could be off with friends. Who knows? What I do know is that life changes constantly, sometimes more rapidly or drastically than we would like. Sometimes subtly, with us barely noticing. If only we could capture the precious, everyday moments. The little things you feel so sure you will never forget and then something happens, times passes and suddenly it isn’t quite so clear.


Apple Pie

Crust

  • 3 cups almond meal (320 grams)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, firm (20 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons honey* (40 grams)
  • pinch of salt
  1. Pre heat your oven to 180°C or 350°F. Grease an 18cm pie tin or spring form pan.
  2. Place the ingredients into your processor and blend until the mixture resembles a dough consistency. It will only take a few seconds. Press the dough into the base and a few centimetres up the sides of your pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Filling

  • 5 apples, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. As you slice the apples place them into a large saucepan half filled with water. Once you have finished slicing the apples drain off the water and return the apples to the saucepan. Add the remaining ingredients and place the saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Simmer the apples for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. Make sure there is a small amount of liquid, you can place the lid on the saucepan if need be.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to fill the base with the apple pie filling and place the pie into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden, the apples should be very soft.
  4. Remove from the oven and cool slightly. Slice. Serve. Eat and enjoy.

    I didn’t know you were pregnant! Congratulations, and hopefully the magical second trimester vibrancy will come soon 🙂

    • How lovely to hear from you!! I have written to you many times in my mind! I hope you are going well. It would be great to catch up soon. Yes, I am hanging out for that vibrancy but thankfully although I’m still not radiant and glowing things are certainly looking up, we had a rough few weeks!!! A little energy would also be welcomed but hey, as long as bubs is safe as well I can endure spending my time on the couch a little longer. I hope you are going well!! Thanks for writing. x

    • Thank you! I didn’t cook much at all from 6 – 12 weeks but I had some drafts that I needed to publish so I used these. I have actually slowed down on how often I am getting new recipes up but I think it is all still ticking along ok. It is such a special and exciting time, I feel very blessed. I hope the little one is fit and well and that I can keep my impatience in check, it is still a little while until we meet. Thank you for writing. It will be lovely sharing the journey with you all. xx

    Congratulations!!
    I tried it last weekend with chia gel and it turned out really yummy!
    My only mistake was the size of the tin, mine was smaller than yours so the crust was a bit too high on the sides. I’ll know for next time! Absolutely delicious recipe, I’m so glad I’ve found you 🙂

    • I am glad you have found me too!!! Thank you so much for writing. I am sure many people will find your tip really helpful! I am rapt that you have enjoyed the pie, be sure to let me know how you go with any other recipes that you try. Thanks again, Bianca. x

  • Tracy

    How do you make chia gel?

    Thankyou for your website! It is fantastic!

    • I add 1/3 cup chia seeds to 2 cups of water and whisk it every couple of minutes for around 10 minutes. Then place in the fridge. xx

    Firstly, a belated congratulations! Such exciting and busy times ahead I’m sure. I can confirm for you that this is absolutely delicious with coconut oil. I’ve made it a few times now and have also used 3 pears and 3 apples then served it with whipped coconut cream for something different too. It’s always a hit. Thank you for the gorgeous recipe.

    • Fabulous!! Thank you so much!! I really appreciate the feedback and I am glad you have enjoyed the recipe. Be sure to let me know how you go with anything else that you try. Bianca. x

    Amazing. I made 4 medium sized pies with the recipe and served with your vanilla ice cream. My dinner guests were very impressed. Can’t wait to make this one again! Thanks xx

  • Jen

    I make this all the time. It’s so simple and delicious. I have been asked to bring this dish to many gatherings with friends and family as its always a pleasure to eat.

    I made it with coconut oil and part LSA/almond meal. It tasted amazing but stuck to the bottom of the tray, next time I’ll use baking paper.

    • Thank YOU!!!! I am sorry it stuck but I am so glad it is being enjoyed! I really appreciate the feedback. I hope you find some more recipes that work well for you. Be sure to let me know. B. x

  • Joanne Sinclair

    Yum! Great way to use up some apples. Subbed coconut oil for butter and maple syrup for honey. It’s a keeper 😀
