Shaun’s vegan strawberry apple pie recipe with oat crumble

No Comments Ashley Gilday Dessert, Recipes, Sweet

Making the perfect pie takes skill and precision. It also means following the rules of baking, which truly is a science. So who better to make the perfect vegan strawberry apple pie then an Engineer? They LOVE following the rules and take great pleasure in precise measurements (and off the record, I do not!). It just so happens that I’m married to an Engineer and he is definitely the Executive Pastry Chef in our house.

Meet Shaun.

Shaun and I went strawberry picking last weekend in Michigan. It was really nice to get out of the city and get into some dirt. I love picking fruit. It is one of my top 5 favorite things to do.  Experiencing the strawberry fields was invigorating. It was also a great way to spend some time together and enjoy nature.

When we got back, Shaun decided to whip up this incredible vegan strawberry apple oat pie. He immediately kicked me out of the kitchen and started rolling his dough. Now why would such a sweet man kick his wife out of the kitchen? Well, it turns out I am rather bossy in the kitchen. Can you relate? I think I know best, but not when it comes to pie. Shaun has it covered. So I left.

I love the oat crumble on top and the flakiness of the crust paired with the crisp apples and juicy strawberries. Put a dollop of whipped coconut cream on top and your tummy will be thanking you!

What do you think about vegan fruit and berry pies? Do they taste any different then non-vegan fruit and berry pies to you?
