Hungry for a piece of our delicious apple pie? Our apple mixture, cooked with cinnamon and nutmeg, and sweetened with cane and palm sugar, sits inside a flaky, crunchy crust made with rolled oats, cashews, wheat flour and coconut oil. Serve with a dollop of yogurt, coconut cream or ice cream for a rich, satisfying dessert or snack.
We use fresh apples from Malang in Indonesia and organic cashews that we source from an independent collective in Wonogiri Indonesia that supports small-holder farmers and their families. Apples are linked to a lower risk of diabetes and are good for your bones. Cashews have a low glycemic index (GI), which means they won’t spike your blood sugar levels, and are full of fiber, to help digestion, healthy fats and high-quality plant-based protein. They’re also loaded with magnesium, which helps with heart health as well as regulating nerves and blood pressure. Cashews may also be good for people with Type 2 diabetes by helping to control blood sugar and insulin levels.
