This healthy peach pie recipe features a crust of crushed graham crackers, a creamy Greek yogurt filling, and a topping of vanilla-scented fresh peach slices.
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 9 sheets)
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1 cup unsweetened almond milk, divided
1 1/2 cups fat-free Greek yogurt
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 vanilla bean
1 1/2 pounds peeled, pitted peaches, cut into wedges
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. In a food processor, pulse crust ingredients until blended; press into a 9-inch pie plate to form crust. Bake until golden (about 10 minutes); set aside on a rack to cool (about 30 minutes). Leave oven on.
Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/2 cup almond milk in a small saucepan; let stand 3 minutes. Heat gently over medium heat just until gelatin dissolves. Mix with remaining almond milk, yogurt, brown sugar, and salt. Split vanilla bean in half lengthwise, scrape out seeds; stir into yogurt mixture, reserving pod. Pour filling into cooled crust and cover; chill at least 2 hours.
While filling cools, increase oven temperature to 425°. Arrange peaches in a medium baking dish. Drizzle with lemon juice and water; sprinkle with sugar, add vanilla pod, and dot with butter. Roast peaches, basting occasionally with their juices, until wedges are tender and glazed (15-20 minutes); cool to room temperature. Arrange peaches on pie; slice pie into 10 pieces, and serve.
Total time does not include 2 hours chilling time.
