Paleo Apple Pie

It’s fall and the holidays are fast approaching. I don’t know about you guys, but if I can avoid my Aunt’s pancreatic assaulting desserts, I’m gonna! Rather than add pounds of sugar into your desserts this year, use monk fruit sweetener! It’s the same damn taste but without the calories, cavities, and multiple trips to the shitter afterward.

While you’re keeping it sugar-free, might as well make it gluten-free and paleo. Like, why not? This graham cracker crust is like crack, I swear. I know my stepdad is going to pick at the crust and leave the filling like he does with every pie…. and if he does it with this recipe, there will be war!

Here’s my relatively simple but still kind of a pain in the ass apple pie recipe….

 

Graham Cracker Crust Recipe

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine dry ingredients first and then the wet ingredients

Use your hands to collect all the dough and roll it into one big ball

Place the ball in the pie pan and gently press the dough until its flat and goes up the sides of the dish

Bake for 12 minutes

Let cool while your filling is being prepped

Pour the filling on top of your crust and bake at 350 for 10 more minutes.
