I know, I know, another apple pie. I just can't help it. It is an all time favorite food for us to make and eat around here. We make it using such healthy ingredients that we have it for breakfast, lunch dinner and dessert.
My dearest friend gave me a huge box of apples for my birthday last week. She went to a local farm and picked them herself. They were delicious and of course we had to make pie with them. So far I think we are up to 5 pies and still have apples left. Well, as usual, I didn't have the right ingredients to make it, so we improvised. This time I think we came up with a winner. Everyone agreed that this was the best apple pie ever and for an added bonus it was the easiest one to make. All you really need are nuts. It is gluten free, GAPS diet friendly, grain free, and sugar free. (dairy free too if you leave off the whipped cream or use coconut cream instead)
my husband loves this thing and as you can see the kids do to. It peals, cores and slices the apples at the same time with just a turn of the crank. Pretty nifty.
