Tis the season to indulge oneself and what better way than with a healthy, easy, to die for apple pie.
It’s gluten, grain, and egg free. It’s super simple. And, it tastes great. Start with easy peasy pie crust made in your Ninja or food processor.
HEALTHY TO DIE FOR APPLE PIE
1 1/4 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon coconut flour
4 tablespoons palm oil or ghee, or butter (melted)
1 tablespoon flax seed
3 tablespoons water
Combine all ingredients in Ninja and mix until a ball of dough forms. Press into pie dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
(For an apple pie that is a little tart and a little sweet.)
6 to 8 green and/or red apples (pealed, cored and sliced)
2 tablespoons cinnamon (or to taste)
2 tablespoons Natural Sugar — maple syrup, honey, liquid or natural stevia, or monk fruit (or to taste)
Prepare apples while crust is baking.
Place about a tablespoon of water in the bottom of a pan and place the apples inside. Add the cinnamon and sugar. After cooking you can taste test to add more natural sugar if needed. I don’t like it too sweet, so depending on the sweetness of the apples, I sometimes use none at all.
Cook the apples until they are soft but not mushy — about 15 to 25 minutes on low heat covered. Be sure to stir often so they don’t stick. The water is to help with sticking. When your apples are cooked, pour them into your pie crust and you’re done.
Refrigerate or serve hot.
