obama is finally putting an end to the bronies. Thank you obama
Well, as a result of my earlier baking, I had an enormous batch of dough leftover and no idea what to do with it. I saw a picture of thin McDonald’s Apple Pies and thought “Yes! Healthified version of that coming right up!”
It’s amazing how many times I’ve been inspired based on something so terrible for you, and set out determined to make a healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free alternative.
Onto the Recipe!
Apple Pie Sticks
For the Batter (same as my mini apricot pies)
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup perfect fit protein (or any protein) **
1 banana (mashed)
tsp cinnamon + tsp nutmeg
tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
2 egg whites (1 for batter, 1 for gloss)
1/2 gala apple pureed (peeled if desired)
Two options for cooking, baking or frying, it’s completely up to you!
If baking, preheat oven to 330 degrees and line a baking pan, spray with non-stick oil.
In a bowl, combine your dry ingredients. In another bowl, mash your banana, add coconut oil and 1 egg white. Slowly mix the two together and form a dough-like consistency (add more flour if necessary). Roll your dough into a ball and let it sit.
Cut your apple into bits and puree. Mix with stevia and cinnamon. Set aside.
Cut your dough in half. On a floured surface roll out one half. Leaving about 1 inch around the edges, cover your dough with 1/2 of your filling mixture. Roll out the other half of your dough and cover the filled side, pressing down on the edges. Run a pizza cutter horizontally across and cut small strips of your dough. Using a fork, press down on all edges of your “apple pie sticks.” Now, lay each out on your baking sheet.
In a small bowl, mix egg white and water (2 tbsp) and coat each stick lightly. Place in oven and bake 10-13 minutes. In a small bowl, pour out the rest of your apple puree for dipping!
If frying, heat up 3 tbsp of coconut oil (or however much it takes to coat the pan), and fry each stick for a few minutes on both sides, place on a plate covered with paper towel to wick off extra oil.
** If you do not wish to use protein, omit and increase your flour by 1/2 cup
