A Primal Pie Crust & Apple Filling!

by, Ann@74 @flickr.com

It’s a winner.  Looking for a way to make your pie and eat it too?  Here is a purely primal option that I made for christmas morning.

Pie Crust:

Preheat oven to 350.  In a cuisinart grind:

  • 2 1/2 cups pecans
  • Add 1 tsp cinnamin,
  • 1 tsp nutmeg,
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • and 1/4 cup ginger (chopped).
  • Pour in 4 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • and 1/4 cup stevia; mix.

Press into pie pan and let cool in refrigerator for 1/2 hour.  After chilled, bake for 12-15 minutes in your pre-heated oven.  Let crust cool completely.  Fill with your choice of pie filling and bake as you would ordinarily.

ready for baking...

Apple Filling:

Preheat oven to 325.  Peel 12 medium sized Granny Smith apples, slice (either by hand or with a food processor).  In a seperate bowl combine:

  • 1/4 cup stevia
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamin
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground clove
  • 2 tsp lemon zest

As you fill your pie plate, layer the sliced apples, above mixture and dot with butter.  Once you filled your pie, spread melted butter on top.  Cover pie with aluminum foil and bake for 1:15.  Bake at 325 for 60 minutes.  Uncover pie and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes at 375.

Cool and serve with whipped cream (made with stevia, vanilla and heavy whipping cream) or top with some honey sweetened Fage.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Till next time, be well,

It is different, & it is tricky, but it is also possible and I've found some tricks to satisfy even the most carb loving baker without the extra sugar and gluten that some of us just can't eat; and I'm looking forward to sharing more recipes with you as I experiment along.
