It’s one of those famous American treats that we just can’t live without. Unfortunately, traditional Apple Pie has more sugar than apples and more gluten than goodness, which is why Apple Pie was on my Paleo To Do List!
This recipe is sweetened with natural dates and is 100% grain-free and dairy-free. Now there’s an Apple Pie you can indulge in!
4 large red apples, chopped
2/3 of a cup chopped dates
1 and 2/3 of a cup water
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the apples, dates and water in a large sauté pan and set the temperature gauge to medium heat.
Stir and let the apples soften. Once the water evaporates, add a cup of water and the cinnamon. Stir, then cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a baked Paleo Pie Crust, using the caramelized dates that tend to line the bottom of the pan to fill in the gaps between the apple pieces.
Tip: Paleo Pie Crust is easier to crumble when chilled. Use un-baked Paleo Pie Crust mixture and refrigerate it for a few hours before crumbling over pies for the best finish.
