A delicious apple treat sweetened with maple syrup.
  • 4 large, organic Granny Smith Apples
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (divided)
  • 1 tbs raw honey
  • ½ cup Tigernut flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot flour
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ⅛ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Peel and slice apples into large slices. Place on bottom of round, glass pie pan.
  3. Sprinkle apples with 1 tsp of cinnamon (reserve the rest for the crust) and drizzle honey evenly across them.
  4. Place glass pan with apples in oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes while prepping crust. (alternatively, you can bake both together, but the crust may be overdone)
  5. Mix all dry ingredients well (tigernut, arrowroot, cinnamon).
  6. Soften oil and coconut butter in microwave for 15 seconds, then combine with the dry mix.
  7. Add maple and vanilla and mix with hands or fork until all ingredients are well combined.
  8. Your dough will be very wet and may not hold together well. That's all right.
  9. Remove apples from oven.
  10. Spread dough with the back of a spoon on top of partially cooked apples or crumble onto apples and flatten with back of spoon. Be careful not to burn your self!
  11. Place in oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes. The crust should be stiff and golden brown when done.
  12. Add whipped coconut topping for a really special treat!
