Cook's Corner with Chef Jyoti Friedland

Streusel Apple Pie Hemp Bread

Chef Notes: Fall is here already and apples are displaying a collage of color and taste in our produce area. Apples are great in apple pie but it's sometimes too cumbersome to make. But, you can still eat apple pie without a pie crust and still enjoy the aroma and taste of the real apple pie. This streusel recipe isn't too difficult or intimidating even for the novice. I just tweaked this recipe a bit by adding hemp for more protein. It's so good and quick to make. Chef Jyoti


Yield: 12 servings          Difficulty: easy


1 1/2 cups organic whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup organic evaporated cane juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup organic raisins
1/4 cup organic hemp seed
1 cup organic walnuts, chopped coarsely
2 cups organic apples, firm and tart, shredded
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup hemp seed milk
1/2 cup organic canola oil
1 1/2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
1 cup Streusel, approximately (see recipe below)


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the rest of ingredients and stir in milk, oil, and vinegar at the end.

  3. Spoon batter into prepared pan and sprinkle streusel over batter. Bake until wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about an hour. Cool for 15 minutes before slicing.

In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup organic brown sugar and 3 tablespoons organic whole wheat pastry flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in 2 tablespoons soy margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Then add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
