  • 1 whole wheat pie crust
  • 6 medium Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Line 8-inch or 9-inch pie pan with whole wheat pie crust dough. Pierce crust along bottom and sides in several places.
  • Place sliced apples in the crust-lined pie pan.
  • Mix together remaining ingredients and pour over apples.
  • Place pie crust shields on the crust. Bake pie at 450 degree F for 15 minutes. Remove the pie crust shields and lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake for an additional 55 to 60 minutes.
  • Cool and enjoy.


We recommend using organic ingredients whenever possible.
Although the beauty of this apple is its one crust simplicity, feel free to add a top crust or a crumble topping like this one (nuts or no nuts). If adding a crumble topping I recommend adding it when there is about 25 minutes of baking time left for this apple pie.
