Apple pie, an American classic. Its sweet, delicious and you will find it at almost every BBQ you go to.

When I decided to make an apple pie recipe for this site my only goal was to make it healthy. This is definitely a healthier version of apple pie with ALL of the great taste of the original. I know a lot of you are looking for the container equivalent (my color coded portion control system from 21 Day Fix), well not everything fits so nicely into a little box.

This recipe is for sure healthier, it does not container refined sugar, white flour, or gluten. It is also vegetarian. That being said it is still dessert, it still has calories, it still has fat and it is still meant to be enjoyed on occasion not all the time. This recipe makes 8 servings, below is the nutrition information for 1 serving. Enjoy!

What You Need:

Pie Crust

2 cups coconut flour or blanched almond flour
1/2 cup coconut oil- melted
2 Tablespoons full fat coconut milk cold *Make sure to mix coconut milk thoroughly before using.
2 Tablespoons agave or maple syrup

In a large mixing bowl mix all ingredients together with a rubber spatula. Do not over mix.!

Press the dough into a 9-inch pie plate.

Freeze pie crust until ready to bake.

Pie Filling

5 medium apples- peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons coconut oil- melted
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk

In a large bowl mix apples, lemon juice, apple pie spice & coconut oil.

In a large sauce pan mix together coconut sugar and water. Heat over medium heat until sugar melts.

Mix in coconut milk and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir consistently until mixture thickens.

Remove from heat and pour Carmel over apples. Mix until apples are fully coated with the Carmel sauce.

Streusel Topping

1/2 cup Blanche almond flour
2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal
2 Tablespoons arrowroot powder
2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
1 Tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut milk, full fat
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mix all ingredients together using your hands. The mixture will be crumbly.

Assembling your pie

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Spoon apples over chilled pie filling and evenly distribute
Cover with streusel topping
Bake pie for 10 min at 400 degrees F
Reduce heat to 325 degrees F bake pie for 40 more minutes (until apples are tender)
Cool pie completely on a wire rack before serving

Note: I actually like to put the pie in the fridge over night and serve cold.

    I’m looking for a 21 Day Fix pie crust recipe that would be suitable for a quiche. I’m not sure how this crust revipe would taste, eveb with leaving out the sweetener. I’ve never worjed with coconut or almond flours, nor coconut milk. What would you suggest?

  • Jody

    I’m wondering in your recipes what you would use for a substitute for almond flour (nut allergy) and almond milk?

  • Kay

    This is just what I was looking for to make for my MIL who is gluten and soy free and tries to eat vegan. Thanks so much! Quick question, does this freeze well? Or how far in advance can I make it?

    • Autumn

      I can’t say I’ve ever frozen this pie Kay. Ideally I would serve it within 1-2 days of making it, but If needed you could push it off a bit longer!

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I love how you said….not everything fits nicely in a container. It reminds me that everything in moderation on special occasions is ok…it wont kill us. Thank you for your program. So far Im down 35 pounds in my second round. Thank God for this program and you….you are AWESOME!!

    • Autumn

      Of course! Great results Cassandra, love hearing this.

  • Shannon

    I made this recipe today & it tastes great! The next time I make it I will use half the amount of coconut oil the recipe calls for.

    • Autumn

      Glad you liked it!

  • Michelle

    did you use the canned coconut milk or the carton coconut milk from the dairy section?

    • Autumn Calabrese

      I used organic full fat coconut milk in a can.

  • Emily W

    Im pretty sure all treats are a substitute 1 yellow , and that is available 3 per week.

  • Karen fuller

    hi autumn
    Please explain what a piece of pie equals as I see 1 yellow + purple.

    • Autumn Calabrese

      I added a little intro to the pie recipe. This one doesnt really fit nicely into the color coded containers of 21 Day Fix. It is a treat for sure, its a healthier version of apple pie. There are no refined sugars or processed flours or other ingredients but it is still high in calories and carbs. I believe that everything in moderation is ok and having this as a special treat at a BBQ or other event won’t undue all of your hard work as long as you continue to eat healthy foods in the proper portions sizes.

    The crust sounds devine as well as the rest. I’ve been missing this since wheat now completely disagrees with me. Thanks dearest.

  • Denee Dawson

    What is the container breakdown for the Fix, Autumn?:)

    • Autumn

      Hey Denee,

      There is no container breakdown for this one! See the updated intro to the recipe for a better answer to your question.

  • Ashlee

    Is this 21 day fix approved? If so, what containers does a slice fulfill?

    • Autumn

      Hey Ashlee,

      See the updated intro to the recipe for your answer!

  • Tanya

  • Brittany Donelson

    My husband is going to love this! Apple pie is his favorite dessert but I’ve quit buying them because I’m trying to stay away from it, this will make my husband very happy thanks for sharing it 🙂
