Gluten-Free French Apple Pie (Sugar-less)

French Apple Pie is my Mother’s Day recipe I created out of deep appreciation for a good friend and I created a sugar-less version for myself as I’m in the middle of my 40 Day Pleasure Reset Digestion and I can’t have added sugar for a few days :).

Shopping List Ingredients:

  • 4-5 Organic Apples (enough that when you slice them you have about three cups)
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Ground Nutmeg
  • Gluten-Free flour
  • Coconut Milk (Or Almond Milk or Rice Milk)
  • Butter (Kerrygold or Trader Joe’s Organic Butter)
  • 3 eggs
  • Chopped nuts (Or Almond Meal and/or Cashew Meal)
  • 1 Organic Lemon
  • a couple of mixing bowls
  • 9-inch pie dish

To prepare pie:

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Butter up a9-inch pie pan. If your pan is larger, simply increase the apples & add a little more flour and coconut milk.
  3. If you want more fiber (I recommend) wash your apples and slice them up with skins on – you need three cups or more.
  4. Grate the skin of the lemon onto a paper towel, fold the towel and dab off a little so the grated lemon skin is on the dry side and set aside.
  5. Juice lemon and pour over apples and mix.
  6. Mix 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg and pour over apples and mix.
  7. Melt 2 tb. of butter and set aside.
  8. So now you have a bowl of apples marinating in lemon juice and sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, with melted butter in your pot cooling. Good.
  9. In a separate bowl we will make the Streusel that will go on top. Mix 1/2 c. Gluten-Free Flour, 1/2 c. chopped nuts or half almond meal & half cashew meal, grated lemon peel and 3 tbs of firm butter.
  10. Make sure your hands are washed and kneed this flour nut butter mixture until you have “crumbs”. Set aside.
  11. In another bowl mix 3 eggs, 1/2 c Coconut Milk with your melted butter and 1/2 c. Gluten-Free Flour. Add in from your apple mixture, pouring off any extra juice into this wet filling mix.
  12. Pour your apples into your 9-inch pie dish and arrange flat.
  13. Pour your wet egg filling over the apples.
  14. Sprinkle your “crumbs” on top.
  15. Place in the oven for 40-50 minutes. To check it, a knife inserted in the middle should come out clean.

Enjoy warm with for breakfast! Add some coconut milk or almond milk if you like. Yum…

With Love,

Dominique
