Serves: 8 pieces
  • 7 apples, peeled cored and sliced
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup dairy-free margarine
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  1. Bake the pie crust as instructed by the recipe or package.
  2. Set your oven temperature to 350ºF.
  3. In a large bowl, thoroughly stir together all of the filling ingredients. Spoon the apple mixture into the baked crust.
  4. Using your hands, a pastry blender or fork, mix all of the crumble ingredients in a medium bowl, until pea-sized pieces form.
  5. Sprinkle the crumble over the apples. Don’t worry if it appears tall; the apples will cook down and the pie will be perfectly proportioned.
  6. Cover the pie crust edges with foil. Bake in your preheated oven for 40–50 minutes, removing the foil in the last 15 minutes.
  7. Garnish with chopped peanuts, if desired.
