Almond Flour Apple Pie

INGREDIENTS

For the Pie Crust
• 1 large egg room temperature
• 1/2 cup coconut oil not melted, hard
• 1 cup almond flour
• 2 tbsp coconut flour
• 2/3 cup tapioca flour
• 1/2 tsp salt

For the Apple Pie Filling
• 3 large apples peeled, cored and sliced
into 1/8 to 1/4″ thick
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
• 1/8 tbsp lemon juice
• 1 tsp cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Prepare a 9″ pie dish by greasing with cooking spray or coconut oil.
  2. In a food processor, add all the ingredients except the egg. Pulse several times until it appears crumbly then add the egg and process until it become a dough.
  3. Transfer the dough to the prepared pie dish and press it into the pie dish – up the top and into the bottom of the dish. Using a piece of parchment paper to push the dough into the dish prevents it from sticking to your fingers.
  4. Use a fork to pierce the dough all over to prevent it from rising during baking.
  5. Bake at 375 F 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and cool 10-15 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  6. Reduce the oven to 350 F. Transfer the sliced apples to a mixing bowl with the maple syrup, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Toss the mixture to evenly distribute the mixture.
  7. Place the apple slices in the bottom of the pie crust arranging in a circular motion by slightly overlapping them. Pour the remaining sauce over the apples.
  8. Bake at 350 F 15-20 minutes uncovered until the apples appear tender and the crust is golden brown.
  9. Remove the pie from the oven and cool 20 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces and enjoying.
