Megan’s Comments:

I loooveee some warm apple pie. This makes it easy to enjoy my apple pie craving in just a couple minutes, minus the gluten, dairy, refined sugar, and all the effort it takes to make a whole pie. This makes the perfect dessert for just you OR double for a crowd.

This recipe also works well in the crock pot if you are wanting your home to smell like Christmas morning! Simple use 7 apples, 3 tablespoons raw honey, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter, and 1 1/2 tablespoon almond butter, and a handful of walnuts. Combine in crackpot and cook for 2 1/2 hours.

Add the amount of cinnamon you wish! I dump it on there because cinnamon is a superfood, and it is cheap way to get a heavy dose of nutrition in, always my goal: healthy, but cheap.

Dr Jockers Comments:

Who doesn’t love an amazing apple pie. The basic ingredients are very life-giving but most commercial apple pies are loaded with gluten and often hydrogenated oils, artificial flavorings and preservatives.

This recipe combines good fats in the coconut oil and butter along with a good protein/fat combo in the almond butter and walnuts with healthier sources of sugars in organic apples and raw honey. The cinnamon helps blunt the glycemic impact and enhances our bodies’ ability to utilize sugar effectively.

You can try this with a good almond flour crust here

Anytime I am going to have a desert, I always like to drink some water with a tsp of apple cider vinegar or a fresh squeeze of lemon to further reduce the glycemic impact. I also like to add in more good fats like extra coconut oil or pouring coconut milk or even better using coconut crème with this recipe.

This is the best way to enjoy a dish that contains sugar with less of an inflammatory response in the body. Enjoy responsibly!
