Swedish Apple Pie...A Pie that's not a pie...

This is such a good dessert that I can never take a picture of it! We consume it too fast.
It's perfect for low sugar people or no-sugar people.

There is no crust to make, in fact, all you do is make a quick batter to top the sliced apples.

This recipe is adapted from "Swedish Apple Pie" from

It makes two "pies"

I use about 5ish apples per pie, so you need about 10 medium apples.

Here's the recipe:

2 1/2 cups peeled and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup spelt flour (or another whole grain flour)
1 egg slightly beaten
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350.
Lightly grease 2 pie plates
Peel and slice the apples right into the pie plates
In medium bowl: Mix agave and melted butter. Mix in flour, cinnamon, egg and salt. Mix well and spread over apples. (It doesn't have to cover the entire thing, spread it thinly)
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes till golden brown and bubbly.

It's enough for about 6-8 people.

Someday I'll get a picture of it, someday.
