Pie Crust

  • 300 gr Spelt Flour
  • 50 gr Ground Walnuts
  • 200 gr Chilled Butter or 80 gr Coconut Oil with 9 tbsp Ice Water
  • 20 gr Brown Sugar
  • 2 - 6 tbsp Ice Water
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of Salt

Apple Filling

  • 4 Apples
  • 60 gr Brown Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Date Caramel
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
  • 2 tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 Lemon Some Juice and Zest

Date Caramel

  • 80 gr Dates
  • 50 ml Water
  • 1 pinch of Sea Salt


  • Cut chilled butter into pieces and finely grind walnuts in a mortar.
  • Then mix walnuts, spelt flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add the chopped butter and knead everything with your hands to a crumbly mixture. Then add the water to make the dough smooth and easy to shape. *See "How to make Apple Pie" for how to prepare the cake with coconut oil instead of butter.
  • Form the dough into a ball. Wrap the dough in a foil and let it rest in the fridge for about half an hour.

Date Caramel

  • For the caramel, put the dates with water and sea salt in a blender. Mix everything together to a smooth mixture.

Apple Filling

  • Put your apple slices in a mixing bowl and mix them with brown sugar, some date caramel, vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, Pumpkin Spice and flour.
  • Cut the dough in half. Roll out one half on a floured surface so that it covers the pan. Place the dough in your pie pan and pierce several times with a fork. Then spread your apple filling on the cake base.
  • Roll out the second half of the dough on a floured surface and cut the dough into strips.
  • Now decorate your Apple Pie with the dough strips and use the rest of your dough to add more beautiful shapes. For example, I just used my heart cutter.
  • Spread some milk on the cake and then put the apple pie in the oven for about 45 - 50 minutes.
