1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F). Prepare a pie dish by lightly greasing it with a bit of oil or butter.

2. Prepare the Pie Filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, halved cherries, a tablespoon of maple syrup, and cinnamon to taste. Ensure the fruits are well-coated.
  • Pour the water into the mixture to help soften the fruits as they cook, then set aside.

3. Make the Oat Crust:

  • Grind half of the oat flakes in a food processor until you have a coarse flour.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg and mix it with the ground oat flakes, the remaining whole oat flakes, and a tablespoon of maple syrup. This mixture will form a sticky dough.

4. Assemble the Pie:

  • Press two-thirds of the oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared pie dish, creating a firm base.
  • Layer the apple and cherry mixture over the oat base.
  • Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the top of the fruits, spreading it evenly.

5. Bake the Pie:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the fruits are tender.

6. Serving:

  • Let the pie cool slightly before slicing. This pie is delicious on its own or served with a dollop of Greek yogurt or a scoop of your favorite ice cream substitute for an extra treat.

Enjoy this Flourless, Sugar-Free American Apple-Cherry Pie as a guilt-free dessert that doesn’t compromise on flavor. It’s a testament to how simple, wholesome ingredients can come together to create something truly special for your family and friends.
