Recipe: Vegan Pear Pie.


 Hi!

The first day of autumn is tomorrow, which I'm so excited for. I just love fall. The rainy and chilly weather, colourful trees and the strong smell of spices. And I think I'm not the only one who says this.

So what's the better introduction to the new season than making a pie? Exaclty. That's why today it's a time for a recipe post, the very first on this blog: vegan pear pie. If ounf a recipe for a apple pie on Pop Sugar, but you know the drill, I changed some of the ingredients- including apples as you can tell. My Dad brought too many pears from my grandparents garden. 



Anyways, if you want the orginal recipe click here. And if you want to see my version, keep on reading!

About the pie, it's really really really good, I'm not lying. It's crunchy on the outside and fruity and sweet on the inside. Just a perfect healthy vegan pear pie. And to be honest I may or may not have eaten almost half of it by one day. But without guilt of course :). I really recommend trying it!

  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Get out a 9-inch pie pan, and set aside.
  3. Add raw almonds and walnuts, rolled oats, and flour to a food processor, and grind to a powder. Add in the shredded coconut, the coconut oil, and the maple syrup or honey, and pulse until well blended.
  4. Transfer mixture to the 9-inch pan, and press into an even thickness on the sides and bottom of the pan. Put it in the fridge to chill for at least 10min.
  5. In a medium-sized bowl, add the pear slices, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well, and fill the pie pan.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, falx seeds, salt, and melted coconut oil. Use a fork to mix well.
  7. Sprinkle the topping over the pears evenly.
  8. Bake for 60 minutes or until the pears are soft and juicy.

Have fun baking and let me know how it went!
