This is one of my husband’s favorite new recipe. His Mom was a home baker and he grew up loving apple pie. This is my version of a much healthier pie, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. The best of all worlds and one you can easily adapt with seasonal fruit.

A classic revisited. And a dream come true. Most ingredients can be found in your local Whole Foods store, HEB, Central Market. So simple.

Serves: 9" pie
  • 1 cup Gf all purpose flour such as: Pillsbury All Purpose flour which has pea protein (you can find this flour at HEB)
  • 1 cup gf oatmeal flour such as Bobs Red Mill
  • 1 teaspoon Swerve Sweetener
  • ⅛ teaspoon Maldon salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla such as Nielsen Massey
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil Organic Coconut Oil extra virgin unmelted
  • ½ cup white wine (I suggest a fruity white wine) or Vodka
  • 4 medium small granny smith apples peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons Noble brown sugar* (see recipe bellow)
  • 30 gr/ 2 tablespoons Ghee melted / you can use coconut oil or vegan butter for a dairy free option
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon/ I love Penzeys Spices
  • ⅓ cup gluten free flour such as Pillsbury All Purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon Maldon Salt or fine sea salt
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened dried cherries from Trader Joes
  • 60 gr coconut oil extra virgin/ not melted
  • 60 gr almond flour (I love HEB brand)
  • 60 gr gf oat flour such as Bobs Red Mill
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Maldon Salt
  1. Combine dry ingredients, whisk.
  2. Add coconut oil in solid form mix using your fingers until the flour resembles coarse sand. Add egg yolk and vanilla and mix.
  3. Add white wine little by little and mix with your hands until well incorporated and you form a ball.
  4. Mix the dough by hand lightly until smooth. Don’t over mix.
  5. Flatten the dough and wrap dough in plastic wrap for 10 mins.
  6. Grease a pie pan with coconut oil spray (look at my beautiful new pie pan which is custom made by Designs by Kace).
  7. Roll out the dough to fill the pie pan. Put an industrial plastic wrap or parchment paper over  the pie dough and put ceramic pie weights on top.
  8. Pre bake the pie crust at 350 F until lightly golden and dough feels dry. Remember it will be baked again with the filling and crumble.
  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.
  1. Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl by hand or with a spatula until a crumbly dough is formed.
  1. Remove from pre baked pie crust from the oven and let cool for about 5 mins.
  2. Add the pie filling and crumble on top and bake for another 20 mins or until apples feel soft when you cut through them with a pairing knife.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool. Un mold over a plate and cut with a serrated knife and serve immediately with raspberries or coconut cream.
Noble brown sugar
Mix 2 cups Swerve granular sweetener + 4 tablespoons of molasses (molasses have a large amount of iron, calcium and magnesium) by hand until a brown sugar is formed.

This is my favorite healthy low glycemic brown sugar!!
