There are some days when you just feel like devouring an entire pie by yourself. Well, from a nutritional standpoint, that isn’t the best idea. That doesn’t mean you have to deny yourself a sweet treat, though. Consider downsizing that pie to a small tart, and make the pie with raw vegan ingredients. That sugar bomb of an apple pie is now a healthier version that you can enjoy guilt-free.

For this recipe, you can use four small pie tart ramekins, or you can use a muffin pan for super mini apple pies. Whichever option you choose is totally fine!
