Paleo Apple Pie, Gluten-Free and Raw!


The finished paleo apple pie!

Celiac.com 05/26/2016 - Apple pie is one of those classic desserts that really takes me back to when my children were little. I remember making apple pie with my daughter repeatedly. I would make a "healthier" version of the pie with maple syrup instead of sugar. This was long before being diagnosed celiac and long before cutting out grains from my diet. This gluten-free and dairy-free apple pie recipe is extra special as it is a raw recipe.

There are many health benefits to eating raw foods. When you heat food past a certain temperature it lowers the nutritional value of the food. Now this doesn’t mean you need to go eat a whole head of raw broccoli. In fact, that would probably give you a pretty bad stomachache and some major stomach bloat. Just be sure to eat a certain share of your food items raw so you get all of the benefits they have to offer.

Usually, I am all about quick and easy recipes. This one takes a little extra time but is well worth it. And for any of you who have trouble digesting nuts, be sure to soak all of your nuts before utilizing them. This will help break them down and make them much easier to digest.

Crumble Ingredients:
1 ½ cups pecans (pieces or whole)
2 teaspoons honey
1 ½ tablespoons cinnamon
1 ½ tablespoons carob powder
½ tablespoon date sugar

Apple Pie Sauce Ingredients:
½ teaspoon clove, ground
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ cup cashews, soaked 3 hrs
1 teaspoon orange peel, fresh or dried (You can find it dried in spice sections of most gourmet markets.)
¼ teaspoon cardamom
¼ cup currants (or raisins)
¾ cup water
1 tablespoon date paste
½ teaspoon salt

Coconut Whipped "Cream" Ingredients (Prepare third):
3 medium young Thai coconuts, meat only (3/4 to 1 cup meat total)
½ cup coconut oil, firm (best to use Raw Skinny Coconut oil!)
⅛ cup honey or to taste
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt

Apple Filling Ingredients (Prepare last):
4 medium apples, cored and cut into large pieces (optional: soaked in Kahlua or rum)
½ teaspoon sea salt (brings out the sweetness)
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions:
1. Grind first set of ingredients in a food processor until finely textured, but don’t over grind or else they’ll release too much moisture (about 15-20 seconds of grinding depending on equipment).
2. On a Teflex dehydrator sheet, lay out the mixture so that it is as thin and evenly spaced as possible.
3. Dehydrate for 4-5 hours, and reserve extra for later use on topping.

Apple Pie Sauce Instructions:
4. Using a very high-powered blender, blend all of the apple pie sauce ingredients until very smooth.
5. Keep the mixture reserved in the blender for later use.

Coconut Whipped "Cream" Instructions:
6. Blend all the ingredients in a high-powered blender until very smooth.
7. Place into a storage container and refrigerate for later use. (Stays good for up to 3 weeks.)

Apple Filling Instructions (Prepare last):
8. Just before serving, pulse the ingredients listed above a few times in your food processor just to roughly chop the apple pieces into a chunky consistency.

Apple Pie Assembly:
9. Re-blend the apple pie sauce on a continuous run for 1-1 ½ minutes to warm the mixture.
10. While blending, in a serving casserole dish (1-cup size) or large ramekin, place the pulsed apple filling leaving about an inch from the top for the crumble.
11. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the crumble over the apple.
12. Add a dollop of the Coconut Whipped "Cream" over the crumble and add a dash of nutmeg or add some dairy-free ice cream and some homemade chocolate syrup (no sugar), as I did in the above recipe.
13. Enjoy!

No, not really. I had done my homework, so I reduced all grains substancially to give my guts a chance to heal. I increased all vegetables substancially and am basically going high fat, low carb. That is why I had a few hicups along the way, my diet was too high in FODMAPs (nuts, fruit, avo...

You might want to see about getting the blood test done again and getting a full celiac panel. You have to be consuming gluten daily for 12 weeks before the test. At least half a slice of bread a day. And keep eating gluten til you get the endoscope. The endoscope with biopsy is the golden standa...

Juca hun.....you just responded and tried talking to a person that has been gone for 12 years....please check the date

Welcome. You do sound like you could be one of us. You should get retested for celiac. Just because tests were negative a couple years ago doesn't mean they will be now. Any doctor can run the panel but if you can see a GI doctor that is familiar with celiac that might be best. Do not stop eat...
