Gluten-Free & Refined-Sugar-Free Apple Pie

Author Marie Saba


  • 1 Gluten Free pie crust, homemade or store bought
Crumb Topping
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
Apple Filling
  • 5-6 cups peeled and cored Granny Smith apples, slicedthin (about 6 medium apples)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Fit the crust into a 9- or 9.5-inch pie plate. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the freezer while you prepare the topping and apples.
  • For the topping: In a medium bowl, stir together gluten free flour, walnuts, coconut sugar and salt. Mix in butter with your finger tips until mixture resembles wet sand with some bigger chunks of walnuts and butter. Refrigerate topping while you prepare the filling.
  • For the filling: In a large bowl, toss apples with coconut sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  • Place apples in the chilled pie crust. Spread topping evenly over apples. Bake pie at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F, cover pie loosely with foil (to prevent over browning)and continue baking until topping is golden and apples are tender, about 50 minutes more. Cool and serve!
