There’s nothing like the sweet smell of a homemade apple pie baking in the oven… something about it makes me feel so at home, peaceful and content.
I absolutely adore apple pie – it’s such a classic dessert and it’s timeless. A slice of apple pie is always good.
This apple, walnut and raisin pie is classic with a twist (a classic twist). These 3 flavors go so well together, it would seem as though they were created to be together in a delicious dessert!
This apple pie recipe is so easy to make (as easy as pie) and it’s also 100% healthy! It’s completely refined sugar-free, dairy-free, grain-free and gluten-free.
I hope that you love it as much as I do! xo
-2 cups packed thin apple slices (about half a cm thick/ or 3 small apples)
-1/2 cup chopped walnuts
-1/4 cup raisins
-1 cup almond flour (ground almonds)
-2 tablespoons coconut flour
-4 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
-1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold-pressed coconut oil (melted)
-3 free-ranged eggs
-1 teaspoon ground vanilla powder/ pure vanilla extract
-2 teaspoons cinnamon
-pinch sea salt
-preheat the oven to 180 degree’s Celsius (340 F)
-core the apples and cut into thin slices (long, thin slices – about half a cm thick)
-melt the coconut oil by pouring boiling water into a large bowl and a placing smaller bowl into the water (without burning your hands or getting water into the small bowl), then place the coconut oil into the small bowl and wait for it to melt
-mix the eggs, pure maple syrup, almond flour, coconut flour, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt together in a bowl
-add the melted coconut oil and mix until well blended
-add the apple slices, chopped walnuts & raisins to the bowl and gently mix them into the pie batter
-using a tiny bit of extra coconut oil, grease your pie dish (use a 800 ml/9 inch pie dish)
-pour the pie batter into the pie dish and spread the batter evenly with a spoon
-place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes (the pie is ready when you can pierce the pie with a sharp knife and it comes out clean)
-once cooked, remove from oven and leave to cool for a few minutes
-slice and serve
-enjoy warm & fresh out of the oven… or save a few slices for later (both are good!)
-eat and enjoy single every bite!
