Dietitian's tip:

This pressed-in pie crust tastes like a cobbler – and is high in fiber.

Number of servings

Serves 8


    Pie crust

  1. 1 cup dry rolled oats
  2. 1/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  3. 1/4 cup ground almonds
  4. 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  5. 3 tablespoons canola oil
  6. 1 tablespoon water
  7. Filling

  8. 6 cups sliced and peeled tart apples (about 4 large apples)
  9. 1/3 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
  10. 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  11. 1 teaspoon cinnamon


To prepare pie crust, mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix oil and water together with whisk. Add oil and water mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until dough holds together. Add a bit more water if needed. Press dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Set aside until filling is prepared.

To prepare filling, combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Let stand for 15 minutes. Stir and then spoon into prepared pie crust.

Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F and bake 40 minutes, or until apples are tender.
