Crazy thing, I thought I had already posted this recipe, it is my other favorite Apple Pie Dessert! I even made most of these photos over 2 months ago, but I am ready to share it with you now and I realize you are like woah... another Apple dessert, I have to admit I don't make cakes very often, but pies and especially these pie bites, I love to make, super easy already portioned and perfect for when you want a little something sweet!
6 Apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
2 Tbs. Honey
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cold Butter
1/4 cup Brown Sugar - or Coconut Sugar
1/4 cup of Quick cooking oat
1 Tbs. of Cinnamon (optional)
Step 1: Prepare Filling
Peel, and Slice your apples.
Place Apples in a Saucepan
Add the Lemon juice, Cinnamon and Honey
Cook on medium heat until softened
Mash half of the cooked apples with a Potato masher (step is optional)
Allow to cool, before placing in the pastry
Step 2: Cut Puff Pastry
I love using Puff Pastry for the bottom of my Pie Bites.
This is a product you can find in the frozen section of your Grocery Store
I always have several boxes in my freezer, ready to make a quick breakfast or Pie Bite.
You can make the bottoms 2 ways, cutting circles by tracing a bowl (I can only get 9 circles out of my sheet of puff pastry)
Or cut the sheet into 12 even squares, perfect for a 12 count Muffin Tin, win win, then I trim the edges off, so it fits nicely into the muffin tin (see last picture)
Step 3: Make the Crumble
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup Cold butter
1/4 cup quick cook oats or Rolled oats (your pick)
1/4 cup Brown Sugar or Coconut Sugar
Mix together all ingredients until Crumbly!
Using Coconut Sugar will give it a slightly different taste, although it is not any more nutritious or healthier than any other sweetener, it does have a lower glycemic index than white sugar, so a tad better for the blood sugar.
Step 4: Fill and Bake
- Spray the 12 count muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or rub a small amount of butter in each cup.
- Place a Puff Pastry piece into each cup
- Fill with Apple Pie Filling
- Cover with Crumble
Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes until puff pastry puffs up and the top gets golden brown.
Pull out of the oven and allow to cool for 5 - 10 minutes, then serve with Ice-Cream or by itself.
I am not a nutritionist but put in the Ingredients into Very Well Calorie Counter and this is what they gave me :)
