Light & Lazy Apple and Almond Pie

Leave a comment

I came across this easy-peasy, “no flour” wonderful recipe and thought,” This can be a perfect breakfast!”. I made a mental ingredients check list and  realised I had all of them at hand… As they say “You are attractive, I am remarkably attractive…WHY NOT TO…?!”

This is the result of my labour



For a baking tin up to 22 cm

  • Apples (approx. 3 or more)
  • almond flakes
  • 1 egg
  • 50 gr. almond flour
  • 50 gr of fruit sugar (or sugar, if you dont mind)
  • cinnamon
  • cognac, brandy or liqueur (a few drops 🙂

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Beat the egg with sugar to soft peaks. Add almond flour. Mix. Put the dough in the baking tin, previously greased.

Peal the apples and slice them – make the slices as thin as possible. Put a layer of apples slice on the dough, along with almond flakes ( I used quite a lot of flakes, almost as many as apple slices). Sprinkle the layer with “sugar powder” (I make it in the coffee grinder)  or sugar and with a few drops of cognac. I didnt have cognac in the house and used brandy. Start the next layer. You must have at least 3 layers.

Finish with the final layer of almond flakes, sprinkled with “sugar powder” and alcohol (it helps sugar to caramelise).

Bake until the pie becomes golden.Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.
