Apple Pie

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU), Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Makes 1 x 24 cm / 9.5 ins pie
Total Protein Count: 0-0.3g Protein
8 Serves = 0g Protein per serve

When anyone asks me what my motivations are for writing Charlotteats, I answer that it is my goal to provide a REAL FOOD option for my PKU daughter and family can enjoy together. I am grateful for the medically processed foods that are available to us and the PKU community, but I strive to give my family foods that are natural and un-processed as much as possible. By eating foods closest to their natural state, our bodies will of course benefit. This is what nature intended. Yet when health conditions such as PKU prevent one from eating a wide range of natural foods, it becomes necessary to look for natural alternatives and substitutions. I continue to look for natural foods and the combination of foods that will allow us to have a low or no protein count. Probably the best example of this has been the re-development of the Traditional Apple Pie. Read More
