Apple Pie

 

We all love the warm smell and the soft taste of a classic apple pie with some ground cinnamon, but this quick recipe is truly impressive. It includes some lemon juice and finely chopped walnuts for a superb taste and blended apples for a fine and melting texture. If you have some extra apples in your refrigerator, you can give this recipe a try.

Serves: 6

Preparation time:30 minutes

Cooking time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

1 lb Alkmene apples, cored

2 tbsp butter, softened

7 oz walnuts

1 cup powdered stevia

1 x 40-gram scoop of Blackbelt WPC Strawberry

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 large egg, beaten

2 large sheets frozen pie pastry

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to  400 degrees.

Wash and prepare the apples.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add apples, lemon juice, stevia, and cinnamon. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until soft. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool completely.

Transfer to a food processor and add protein powder. Process until pureed and set aside.

Defrost the pastry and cut into 2-inch long squares. Brush each square with beaten egg. Scoop out about one tablespoon onto the middle of each square. Roll the pastry and place in a prepared baking pan.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until nice and crispy.
