GF Vegan Salted Maple Pie

Updated: Aug 16, 2018

About two years ago I was in Brooklyn, NY and I tried a vegan salted maple pie for the first time. I didn’t think I could eat a pie as fast as I did on that cold crisp day. I enjoyed the pie so much, that I asked the chef what made it so good.. His response? The vegan butter! Unfortunately he wouldn’t share the recipe, so I decided to experiment and come up with a vegan recipe that was also gluten free!
