How to make apple pie?

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray or cake tin with baking paper. Start by preparing the cover. To do this, wash and chop the apples and place them in a saucepan or smaller pot. Add the water, maple syrup and cinnamon. Simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the apples are soft, caramel-coloured and the excess water has evaporated.

Then prepare the dough. To do this, first mix the oat flakes with the baking powder in a bowl. Then add the lemon juice, banana and pour in the almond milk and maple syrup. Puree with a blender until smooth. You can also blend all the ingredients in a blender or food processor.

Place the dough on a baking tray lined with baking paper, or in a cake tin of your choice, and spread out to a base about 0.5-1 cm thick. You’re completely free to bake this cake in any shape you like – you can use either a round or square cake tin, and you can even spread the cake batter in a circle in the middle of a large baking tray lined with baking paper. Spread the apple mixture on the bottom and bake the cake at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Let the cake cool a little and enjoy!
