Healthy Apple Pie Recipe


Healthy Apple Pie *Use Organic Ingredients when possible


Filling:

8-10 Apples (combo of red and green)

½ Lemon or Lime (or organic lemon or lime juice in a squeeze bottle)

1 Tbsp Vanilla

Cinnamon to taste

Nutmeg to taste

1 Packet Stevia (optional)

· Peel, core and slice into thin slices all the apples

· Peel and juice the lemon or lime and set aside

· Sauté the apples in the lemon or lime juice, add the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Sauté on medium heat until apples are soft. You may add more lemon or lime juice or add a small amount of filtered water if you desire softer apples and the liquid has evaporated.

· Cool apple mixture for about 15 minutes before pouring over crust.

· Refrigerate if you prefer to eat your pie cold


Pecan Crust:

2 & ½ Cups Pecans

1 Cup Dates (I prefer organic Medjool Dates and don’t forget to pit them)

¼ tsp Celtic Sea Salt

· Use a glass pie plate or a 10” spring form pan rubbed with coconut oil

· Process pecans in food processor on high until they form a fine meal

· Add pitted dates (one at a time allowing them to combine). Continue adding dates

until pecan/date mixture forms dough like consistency (you may not use all of the

dates or you may need a few extra)

· Put the pecan/date mixture into pie plate or spring form pan and press down

forming a crust

· Add the apple filling

Enjoy!!
