And just like that we are stepping into a new season! The kids are back in school, the leaves are falling and cardigan weather is right around the corner. This is my favorite time of year to slow down and reflect on the year ahead. I love coming home to a warm house that smells like cinnamon and apples. Although I do enjoy going candle shopping for these scents, there is nothing better than an Apple Pie baking in the oven.
Apple pie has always been one of my favorite seasonal desserts – especially if it’s homemade. Nothing beats a baked crust with a warm apple and cinnamon filling, and a crunchy crumble on top, paired with some delicious vanilla ice cream to balance it out. This Apple Pie was such a hit in my house, that it was gone within minutes. If you are someone who is looking for a gluten-free alternative or something that offers more health properties, this Apple Pie recipe is definitely one you will want to try this fall.
The combination of the cinnamon, coconut oil, pecans and almond flour may help stabilize blood sugar levels** so you are avoiding the sugar rush you may experience from store-bought apple pies. Another perk of this homemade creation? It calls for Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, which is odorless, flavorless and easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids. It’s a super versatile collagen powder and a must-add when planning out your lunch and dinner menus. Did I mention that our collagen also helps to promote healthy hair, skin, nails and joints**? Yep, it’s that awesome.
Flex your culinary muscles and make this delicious apple pie. It’s the tastiest way to welcome fall.
Yields 6-8 Apple Pie servings
