- 3 Tbsp Coconut Flour
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg

- 3/4 C Maple Syrup
- 1/4 C Water
- 4 oz Butter, 1/4 C Full Fat Coconut Milk
- 3/4 Tsp Very Find Ground Sea Salt,
- Your Favorite Paleo Pie Crust. Recipe to follow…..
Ingredients For Crust
-2 cups blanched almond flour
- ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 large egg
- Place flour and salt in food processor and pulse briefly
- Add coconut oil and egg and pulse until mixture forms a ball
- Press dough into a 9-inch pie dish
Peel and thinly slice apples. Make them as thin as you can… a mandolin would work great for this! Toss the chopped apples in the lemon juice to prevent discoloring and add a tartness. In a small bowl, mix together the apple spices (coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger). Toss sliced apples in apple spices and set aside.
Begin preparing salted caramel by combining maple syrup, water and butter in a small saucepan. Allow butter to melt over medium high and mixture to begin to bubble. Allow mixture to continue to cook till it reaches a rich caramel color and consistency. When you run a spoon through the mix, it should take a second to fold back to where it was, if that makes sense. Once it reaches this point, removed from heat and add in coconut milk and salt. Make sure your salt is a very fine grind or it may not disperse properly.
Now you are ready to assemble.
Now begin by layering about 1/3 of the prepared apples into the crust. Top with about 1/3 of the caramel mix. Continue with another 1/3 of each, and then the final 1/3 of each. Top with prepared crust. I chose to sprinkle pieces of crust over mine as I had a 3 year old helping me, and that was a fun/easy step for her to do!
In a 375 degree preheated oven, bake for 20 minutes before lowering temperature to 350 for an additional 25-30 minutes. Allow pie to cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
