So many wanted the recipe for this apple pie filling with added superfoods! It’s a simple and delicious topping for ice cream, waffles, pancakes, or used as expected: for apple pie! It's not too sweet, has a wonderful bright flavor from the lemon zest and lemon juice, and is super easy to make.
We added our seasonal Fall Vibes blend which has all your favorite fall spices with the benefits of adaptogens like ashwagandha and superfoods like tocos. Can’t wait to hear what you think!!
4-7 medium apples
1 tbsp lemon juice
⅓ cup + 1 tbsp brown sugar/coconut sugar
¼ cup tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp Fall Vibes
1 cup water
In a medium sized pot over medium heat, combine your diced and peeled apple pieces, lemon zest, lemon juice, brown sugar, Fall Vibes, water, cornstarch, and salt and mix until everything is nicely coated and the cornstarch is dissolved.
Allow to cook for 30 minutes, stirring every 2-3 minutes so the apples can get cooked through evenly.
Once apples are cooked as desired, transfer to a clean jar to store in the fridge, or serve warm over your favorite desserts! Allow to cool to warm or room temperature before using in a pie so it doesn't melt your pastry dough!
