It’s that time of the year and I am dreaming of pie! But now when I dream of pie I dream of a Paleo Apple Pie, or a Healthy Apple Pie. So, naturally I knew that I could totally nail this recipe to be paleo and healthy for all of you to love and enjoy, without feeling guilty about it.
Pie is something that everyone loves, right? A good crust is half of the success. You need to make sure you have a good crust recipe. One thing that I have been hearing for several years now is how everyone wants a good pie crust recipe. One that rolls out, shapes, and actually tastes good.
Paleo Apple Pie
Last year I nailed it with my Gluten Free and Vegan Pie Crust recipe. I was really proud of this one and it took FOREVER to get right. So many flops. We had floppy pie crust for days. Once I figured it out though, pie was never the same. Pie actually tasted great and after making it a few times it became super easy.
Once I had the Paleo Pie Crust figured out and since I had just made an Apple Crisp I knew that a Paleo Apple Pie would be easy!

The filling is super simple and made in no time. You don’t have to make this paleo if you don’t want to and I will tell you what ingredient you can switch if paleo is not important. It will still be a healthy apple pie that everyone will love.
When I enjoy my Healthy Apple Pie, I love a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream or a dollop of Whipped Coconut Cream on top.

I did a poll on all of my social media because I intended to only do one pie recipe this season. I sought out to know if everyone wanted apple or pecan. The response was BOTH! So, I delivered friends and I made them both paleo because you have been asking for paleo and grain free recipes.
Honestly, I also wanted both as well. Along with Pumpkin because that is a classic. I will definitely make 2-3 pies for Thanksgiving and have a selection. These are so darn good that your entire family is going to want a slice too! They will never know its gluten free.
How do I make this Paleo Apple Pie?
You will first need a pie crust and I have the perfect paleo pie crust recipe for you. Start by making that, you will need to double it. Put one into a pie dish and then roll the other one out for the top of the pie.
Then peel and cut your apples. Your favorite apple will work perfectly. My personal favorite is Honey Crisp, but others swear by Granny Smith. Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF.
Add your chopped apples to a bowl and sprinkle the coconut sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour, then stir it to coat the apples. Drizzle the maple syrup and give it another toss.
Pour the apple mixture into your pie shell and then you will put the second dough that is rolled out on top. Make the egg wash by whisking the yolk and coconut milk together. Brush the egg wash lightly onto the top of the pie. You can add a few slits to the top of the crust and sprinkle some additional coconut sugar if you desire.
Bake for 45 minutes and then allow it to cool for at least 25 minutes before serving. Top with Vanilla Ice Cream or Coconut Cream.
Don’t need to have this recipe be paleo? Simply swap the Paleo Crust for my Vegan Gluten Free Pie Crust and then use the regular gluten free flour blend for your flour, brown sugar in place of the coconut sugar and keep the rest the same.
