Cast your vote for One of best vegan pies -- the crusty vegan apple pie recipe -- nuts are optional

Step 1 to make vegan pies -- prepare your dish -- can be any material but must be ovenproof

Prepare your ovenproof baking dish

Use a teaspoon of oil to grease the dish -- this prevents not only vegan pies, but any other pie from sticking to the tray. Set dish aside. Wash the apples and peel them. Slice them into four -- so you can clean the core. Cut apple slices into small pieces. Place pieces of apples into baking dish.

Step 2 to make the apple vegan pies -- get you apples in order

the apples for the vegan apple pie lie in the dish sprinkled with cinnamon

For the filling of apple vegan pies, sprinkle cinnamon over the apples. Add 1/3 cup of water mixed with a teaspoon of vanilla essence to the apples and leave them to soak. Set the dish aside until the mixture for the crust if made

Step 3 for making vegan pies -- prepare the vegan pie crust ingredients

The vegan apple pie crust ingredients will be mixed in a bowl -- the same as for all the vegan pies

Place in a bowl the oat flakes, the sugar, the salt, the lemon zest and the pieces of nuts -- if you intend to use them. Add the oil and 2/3 of a cup of water. This are the base ingredients for the vegan pie crust. Please note: I have made the pie without nuts or any other special addition to the basic plain apples -- the result is a wonderful apple pie! According to preferences -- the nuts from the list of ingredients can be replaced with raisins, other dry fruits or left out altogether. Vegan pies can be customized -- here is a creative opportunity!

Step 4 -- mixing well the ingredients of the vegan pie crust

The vegan pie crust is mixed until the flakes are soaked well

Mix well all ingredients for the vegan pie crust-- take your time and stir all together until the sugar is melting.and the oat flakes are getting soaked well.

At last but not least -- step 5 and final in the process of making the vegan pies

this is the last operation before the vegan apple pie is finished

Place the mixture of oat flakes and the other ingredients on top of the apple pieces in the baking dish..make sure the oat flakes are in an even layer over the pieces of apples.

Preheat oven to 190 -200 C degrees and bake the pie for 30 minutes. You will know its ready when the crust is getting light brown. Vegan pies are baked like other pies and take roughly the same time

The vegan apple pie is finished now! Vegan pies are good warm -- but they are healthy when cooled down.

vegan pies are best when cooled -- it is not healthy to eat hot fruit pies!

At this stage the only concern is how to be patient until the crusty vegan apple pie is cold enough to be served. In fact -- this vegan apple pie should be consumed the next day only -- the apples in the pie are getting firm because of the syrup that hardens when cooling. However -- it is legal to eat the vegan pies as soon as they are not hot -- makers decision. In all honesty, the vegan pie recipe does not mention waiting that long -- it is only from my own experience and according to my own taste that I prefer eating vegan pies the next day.

Although vegan pies can be served with whipped cream , fruity syrups, fruity yoghourt or ice cream to non vegan family members or guests, this apple pie is an absolute delight on its own.

Vegan pie or non vegan pie? That is the question! - People like pies -- its as simple as that

      I like apple pies especially with a nice crust -- this one looks nice and I guess its less fattening as there is no flour used.
