  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 Cup coconut oil

  • 1 egg

  2. In a large bowl whisk together the dry crust ingredients and then add in the wet ingredients, mix together well until a dough forms,

  3. Grease a pie pan or line a baking pan with parchment paper,

  4. Press the dough into the pan to create an even crust and push the dough up the edges of the pan to create a 1” high border in the pie pan,

  5. Poke holes in the base of the pie crust with a fork,

  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

  7. While the crust bakes, place your sliced apples into a bowl, add all apple filling ingredients, mix well to coat apples and set aside,

  8. In a small bowl, whisk dry crumb topping ingredients, then add coconut oil and mix until a crumb forms, set aside,

  9. When the pie crust comes out of the oven, fill it with the apple apple slices (discard the liquid; TIP: the apples shrink in the oven so over-fill the crust),

  10. Crumble the crumb topping on top of the apples,

  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Optional: before you serve it, drizzle the pie with high fiber syrup
