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!
