Apple Pie.

I was waiting for this moment the whole summer: to make an apple pie. Apple season started early this year, but I didn’t crave for apple pie until last week. It happened one afternoon, it was chilly outside and I just wanted to have a bite of warm cinnamon apple pie. I didn’t want to make the regular apple pie, it should have been healthy version of my favorite fall dessert.

So I took all the ingredients out and found out that we have only 2 apples left. I didn’t want to wait till the next day, to go and get more apples, so I used some pears in my pie too, and it worked great, and helped me not to use sugar in the filling at all.

The crust turned out really good, and you couldn’t say it was made of oat and coconut flour and coconut butter.

It tasted like the regular apple pie, but I knew, it was made the healthy way, and to my surprise it was finished in 1 hour. Looks like I am not the only fan of apple pies here.

The recipe is gluten free. I used eggs for the crust but feel free to use the egg replacement to make the recipe completely vegan.
