Mini Caramel Apple Pies with Cinnamon Streusel {gluten-free, vegan}

In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for mini stuff! Why make a single large-sized pie, when you can have 12 tiny ones? I am not sure where or when this love affair began, but I constantly find myself opting for littler things over the traditional size. (spoiler alert: I have another mini dessert coming to the website later this week)

When Attune Foods contacted me to develop a holiday-worthy dessert recipe using one of their Erewhon Supergrain cereals, I was excited for the challenge of recreating a classic sweet treat, like apple pie. I opted for mini apple pies with a deliciously simple crust and filling, a crunchy spiced streusel topping made with the buckwheat hemp cereal, all topped with a drizzle of my very easy-to-make vegan caramel sauce.

I love the idea that these Mini Caramel Apple Pies with Cinnamon Streusel would be perfect at any holiday feast and for nearly every guest, they are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, peanut-free, vegan, and easily made without refined sugars. Plus, each one is just a couple of bites which mean there is still room on your plate and in your tummy, for all of the other goodies likely being served at your feast.

This recipe sounds incredible! I am curious, though… do you think it would be possible to turn this into a full-size pie? Skip the mini-muffin tin altogether? Just curious.

Thank you!

Hi Raeanne. Theoretically it should work fine as a full-sized pie, but I haven’t made it myself so I cannot say with 100% certainty. I know the crust should work, but you may need a bit more of the apple filling.

Thanks so much 🙂 I’ll let you know if I try it!
