Smarter Apple Pie
A feast for nutrition-conscious fans of fine apple pie: Fat is (almost) non-existent here. The juicy apples also provide vitamin C as well as fibre, which boosts our digestion and makes us pleasantly full. The wholemeal flour supports satiation through long-chain carbohydrates and brings an extra portion of minerals into play.
Try the classic apple pie with ripe cherries or plums! And should something be left over against all expectations: Simply pack it in freezer cans or bags, put it in the freezer and defrost it if necessary. After baking, you can sprinkle the cake with chopped nuts to give it an extra portion of healthy fat

Bake on middle rack of preheated oven at 200°C (fan 180°C, gas: mark 3) (approximately 400°F) until crust is golden and apples are tender and browned, 35-40 minutes. Let cool, then cut into 20 pieces and serve.
