This light apple pie, halfway between a clafoutis and a real pie, is really light and easy to make, it is a cake without butter or yeast, and is also perfect for those who follow the Zone diet, because it respects the percentage of macronutrients 40-30-30.
It also allows you to use apples a lot, and is practically sugar-free except for fruit.

Here is the recipe.
LIGHT APPLE CAKE, PROTEIN CAKE AND ZONE DIET
500 gr of apples and 100 gr of fresh blueberries (or alternatively: 600 gr of apples)
30 gr of corn starch
3 medium-large organic eggs
2 scoops of vanilla-flavored whey protein ( I used these from Foodspring )
sweetener of your choice (I used half a teaspoon of stevia: consider that the proteins are sweetened)
a tablespoon of coconut oil (olive oil is fine too)
a pinch of salt
15 gr of flax seeds
200 ml of warm water
Procedure:wash the apples, peel them and cut them into very small pieces. Put them in a bowl with lemon juice, and add the blueberries too. In a bowl, add the proteins, stevia, cinnamon and flax seeds to the starch, then add the eggs, egg and water with a whisk. Pour the fruit into the starch, protein and egg mixture, then transfer the mixture to a pan (I used a 24 cm pan) and cook for 45 minutes at 175 °.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and Sukrin branded erythritic icing sugar if desired.
Substitutions: if you don’t want to use proteins, two packs of skimmed milk flakes or Greek yogurt 0% fat 150/170 gr are good. In this case, add the vanilla aroma, halve the water and adjust the stevia, adding more.
