Looking to save a few calories but still enjoy a little gooey sweetness now and then? Apple pie is a great dessert because it largely fruit-based, making it a sensible choice for people watching their calories – if you choose the right slice! You really have to watch your pie: some apple pies (like this homemade caramel apple pie) can weigh in at over 600 calories per slice!
I decided to do a recipe make-over and create a healthy and simple version of a caramel apple pie that won’t break the calorie bank. This Caramel Apple Galette is whole-food based and is perfect for people on special diets. Whether you are allergic to dairy, soy, or are a vegan, you can still enjoy this pie without the trans fats and white sugar in traditional apple pie. You can actually feel good about eating this Caramel Apple Galette!
This pie crust took some time to get right, but the work paid off! This crust tastes great and works nicely for many other recipes, such as homemade pop tarts. This crust is whole grain and because it is gluten-free, it won’t get tough if you over-work it like a traditional pie crust.
A rustic pie that is healthy and easy to make? Absolutely! Now that is a dessert you can really enjoy!
