  • Pie pan


For the crust

For the filling

  • 5-7 apples
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup Muscovado sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • Prepare the crust dough - In a food processor, with dough blade, pulse the gluten-free flour, baking soda and sea salt until well combined. Add the coconut butter and pulse to obtain crumb-like texture. Add the cold water and vinegar, and process until well combined. Remove the dough from the processor, wrap in plastic foil and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F.
  • Peel the apples, remove the cores, and cut in cubes. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • Prepare the caramel sauce - mix the lemon juice, water and sugar in a sauce pan and bring to boil over medium heat. Add the coconut milk and sea salt, mix well and let simmer for 10 mins until the liquid thickens.
  • Remove from the heat and pour it over the apples. Add the cinnamon and mix to combine.
  • Divide the dough in two, roll them out and place one on the bottom of the baking pan.
  • Fill with apples in caramel sauce, place the top crust on, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 10 mins.
  • Reduce the heat to 175°C/347°F and bake the pie for 35 mins.


Don't through away the peels, simmer them and obtain a liquid with calming effects, especially if you have insomnia or agitated sleep.
