Sugar free apple pie with the stevia sweetener

Can a sugar free apple pie really be called ‘sugar free’? After all, any recipe made with fruit is bound to contain some natural sugars. What’s more, the glycemic index chart shows that the carbohydrate rate of apples is above average. Keep all of this in mind when you’re making sugar free apple pie.

 

Maybe you’re diabetic, and you might prefer our delicious sugar free pecan pie recipe instead, or one of the others found at our recipe pages. This page however, is all about apple pie, a dish that dates back all the way to 14th century England.

But we’re not here to reminisce, so let’s talk apples! For making apple pie, you can use plain old Granny Smith apples, but we prefer so-called “cooking apples”, which are generally a bit bigger in size and have a sharper taste. 

The best-known cooking apples are the Bramley and the Golden Noble, however the Pink Lady variant has been quickly gaining ground ever since it was first imported from Australia. I’m not going to tell you which brand to choose: that’s completely a matter of taste and besides, that would take all the fun out of experimenting! One tip is to go for a broader taste palette by trying a mix of different apples in your pie.

sugar free apple pieAn apple pie has two crusts: one at the top and one at the bottom. Therefore, we’ll show you a recipe for two crusts. When you put the top crust on the pie, you should slice it open slightly, to allow the hot air to escape when baked. Most recipes suggest baking your pie at 425°F (220°C) for about fifteen minutes and then lowering the heat to around 350°F (180°C), but because stevia powder is only stable in temperatures below 392°F (200°C), we recommend baking your sugar free pie at a constant 350°F (180°C) for about an hour, until the top crust is golden brown and the apples are nice and tender.

 

We hope you’ll enjoy this stevia apple pie recipe, and we gladly encourage you to share your own ideas for any sort of recipe by using the submit stevia recipes link. We’re always open to new dishes with our wonderful sweet leaf sweetener!

Sugar free apple pie with stevia

Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour   
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt   
  • 1 cup butter, chilled and diced   
  • 1/2 cup ice water

 

In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Add butter chunks and ice water (one tablespoon at a time) until mixture begins to thicken. Knead dough into a ball, put it in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Sprinkle flour onto rolling surface to avoid crust sticking to surface. Roll out dough, then divide in half. Roll each half to fit a 9” pie plate. Press bottom crust into pie plate and flute edges.

 

Filling: 

  • 9” pie crust, 2 pieces   
  • 6 apples, thinly sliced   
  • 1 teaspoon white stevia powder   
  • 2 tablespoons flour   
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon   
  • dash of nutmeg   
  • 2 tablespoons butter   
  • 1 can (6oz) sugar free apple juice concentrate, thawed   
  • 1 egg, beaten

 

Place bottom crust in 9” pie plate, set aside. Peel apples and slice in quarters. Slice each quarter lengthwise into five pieces and place in a large bowl. Mix stevia and flour, sprinkle over apples. Add cinnamon and nutmeg, and mix until spices are dissolved. Spread apples into pie crust, pour in apple juice concentrate. Spread butter chunks evenly over filling. Tuck top pie crust into bottom pie crust and pich crusts together. With a knife, make 4 incisions on top crust to allow hot air to escape. Beat one egg and brush it evenly over top crust. Bake in pre-heated oven on 350°F (180°C) for approximately one hour, until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Let cool for at least 4 hours before serving.
