When you have an abundance of zucchini, this really tastes like apple pie. Plus, it's healthier than other "mock apple pies" that are just crackers. The crust is gluten freeand the recipe is sugar free (stevia).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine crust ingredients in a medium bowl, cutting in the margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; add vanilla and mix gently.
  3. Press 1/2 of dough evenly on bottom and 1/4-inch up sides of an 8x8-inch glass baking dish.
  4. Bake until slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
  5. Meanwhile, combine zucchini and lemon juice in a pot and simmer until just barely cooked, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, add stevia, cinnamon and nutmeg and let cool.
  6. Spoon cooled zucchini mixture over crust and sprinkle the remaining crust mixture on top.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes.

This is a great recipe. I gave it 4 stars because I feel it needs more of the filling and less of the crust. I also will do the zucchini in chunks instead of slices next time. It really does taste just like apples and will be at all my holiday events this season!

Absolutely LOVED this! I didn't use stevia because it doesn't agree with me, so I replaced it with brown rice syrup. Also I used some home made apple pie spice mix, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter, and it turned out FANTASTIC. Haven't had apple pie in ages, and this was close enough to nearly make me cry :) Thanks for sharing, this'll be a keeper! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.
