Desserts for the balance of the liver
My "essential" apple pie
In the bowl of a pastry blender, pour 3/4 cup of wholemeal pastry flour of your choice (wheat, kinoa, amaranth, etc.), 1/2 cup of rolled oats, a pinch of salt, 2 tablespoons ice water and 1/2 cup grapeseed oil.
Mix the ingredients with the sheet attachment then gather everything into a ball very quickly, avoiding heating the dough with your hands.
Roll out the dough on baking paper and invert it onto a tart pan with a removable bottom.
Carefully line the mold with the dough, which you will prick with a fork. Reserve in the fridge.
Make a compote with 5 beautiful apples, peeled, cut into cubes and placed in a saucepan with a little water and lemon juice.
Cook covered until the apples are tender. Let the water remaining at the bottom of the pan evaporate, then mash the apples with a puree strainer.
Leave this compote to cool, then pour it over the cold pastry base. Garnish with thin slices of apples arranged in rosettes on the compote.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 35 minutes or as soon as the dough comes away from the edges and takes on color.
Remove the pie from the oven, let it cool down. Take a sugar-free fruit preparation that imitates apricot jam, melt it with a few tablespoons of lemon juice and brush the surface of the pie with a brush.
You can also sprinkle the apples with slivered almonds or crushed walnuts, or for sugar lovers, add mashed dates to the compote.
She'll be beautiful and good....and guilt-free.
You can use pears, plums or fresh raspberries on an apple/raspberry compote, for example.
Cookies without sugar or butter, but which still make an illusion
In a salad bowl, whisk with a fork 1/3 cup of grapeseed oil, 1/2 cup of maple syrup, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a free-range egg.
Add a teaspoon of baking powder, 1 1/3 cups rolled oats, and 1/2 cup carob chips (fake chocolate, at health stores).
Arrange small piles of dough on a baking sheet covered with a sheet of silicone or baking paper, flatten them with your fingertips, and bake them for 15 minutes
in a 180 degree oven.
You can add chopped nuts, raisins, orange zest...
Beat 3 egg whites until stiff but not until they dry out...With the whisk, add a scraped vanilla pod and a teaspoon of nectar of agave.
In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/3 cup oat flour (flakes go through a blender), 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and two tablespoons Maple syrup.
Gently fold the egg whites into this mixture, using a silicone spatula.
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, and bake for 20 minutes in an oven at 150 degrees.
Turn off the oven and let them dry for another 20 minutes, leaving the oven door ajar.
