Creating a Heart Healthy Holiday Menu
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
1 6 cups sliced and peeled tart apples (about 4 large apples)
2 1/3 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
3 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
4 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.
