  • 1/2 C almonds
  • 1/2 C pecans
  • 1 C all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp cold vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • 3 apples
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 C rolled oats
  • 1/4 C coconut sugar
  • 1/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp cold vegan butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp all-spice

salted caramel

  • 1 C coconut sugar
  • 1/4 C nondairy milk
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. In a food processor, blend the almonds and pecans into a fine meal. Add the remaining crust ingredients and blend until well combined. It should stick together when you pinch it.

  2. Press into a 9 1/2" fluted pie pan with a removable bottom. Poke a few holes in the surface of the crust with a fork. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Time may vary depending your oven, so watch it closely. It should be half-baked with a slight color difference. Remove the pie crust from the oven and place on a cooling rack while you make the filling and topping.
  3. Peel, core, quarter, and thinly slice the apples. Mix them with the filling ingredients with your hands in a mixing bowl until well coated.
  4. In another mixing bowl, blend the crumble topping ingredients together with your hands until it comes together into large crumbs.

  5. Layer the apple slices in the crust and top with the crumble topping evenly. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.

  6. While the tart is baking, make the salted caramel by combining the ingredients in small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly for 7 to 8 minutes as it thickens. Remove from the heat.

  7. Allow the baked apple crumble tart to cool for at least 15 minutes before delicately removing it from the pie pan and slicing. Just before serving, drizzle some salted caramel over the entire tart with a spoon. The caramel recipe makes extra that you’ll definitely want to bring to the table for guests to add more!

    What can I sub for the pecans? Would love to make this for my husband and I but I’m allergic to them.

    • Lauren Toyota 4 years ago

      any other nut? walnuts or just more almond flour.

  • Kat U 2 years ago

    Do you use unsalted or salted almonds?

  • Hayley 11 months ago

    Would this work with granulated cane sugar instead of coconut, esp. in the caramel?

  • Silvia 6 months ago

    Always make it, it’s delicious and the crust is easier and more delicious than your traditional pie crust. Scrumptious!
