French Apple Pie (Gluten Free Dairy Free)

This is a fall family favorite! After a trip to pick apples at the apple orchard, this is one of the first dishes I make. I love that the filling batter makes its own crust!

Filling Ingredients:
  • 4 medium tart baking apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1/2 c. gluten free baking flour mix (GF Bisquik in a pinch)
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. sweet coconut milk or vanilla rice milk
  • 2 tbsp dairy free buttery spread, melted (I use Earth Balance)
  • 3 eggs

Streusel Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c gluten free baking flour mix (or GF Bsquik in a pinch)
  • 1/2 c chopped pecans (optional)
  • 1/4 c packed dark brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp firm dairy free buttery spread (such as Earth Balance)


  1. Heat oven to 350˚F. Butter (with dairy free buttery spread) 9" pie dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss apples, cinnamon and nutmeg then pour into pie dish.
  3. In the same medium bowl, stir remaining filling ingredients until blended and pour over the apple mixture in the dish. 
  4. In the same bowl, mix all streusel ingredients with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Sprinkle top of streusel with shaker of cinnamon.
  5. Bake 45-50 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean.
  6. Serve hot. Store in refrigerator.
