Recipe: Paleo Apple Pie Crumble

Thursday, November 7, 2013

After we went apple picking the other weekend, we had a bunch of apples in our kitchen. Imagine that. I spent a few days slicing one up and dipping it in almond butter, but I really felt like we couldn't go through fall without a dish that at least somewhat resembled/tasted like an apple pie. So I made this Paleo Apple Pie-ish Crumble. That's the scientific term for it.

It tastes just like apple pie without the sugar or grains. And it makes your house smell like the holidays.

Four cups sliced apples
One tablespoon agave nectar
One teaspoon vanilla
The juice of half a lemon
One teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl before transferring to a buttered casserole/pie dish.
3. Top with Paleo crumb topping:
2/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup arrowroot powder
1/3 cup butter, cubed
Two tablespoons honey
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until topping is browned. (You can broil it at the very end if you like.)



  1. YES!!! My stomach is literally growling looking at those photos. Definitely making this very, very soon.

  2. I love cooking apples down a bit with butter and cinnamon! This recipe looks like a step up from that! :)

  3. Ugh yessss. I knew I could count on you for a seasonal paleo treat! ;) One question- as a paleo newbie, I have an under stocked pantry. Any suggestions for an arrowroot alternative? THANKS MEGAN, YOUDA BEST.

    1. For this recipe at least, I'd just say skip the arrowroot powder! You really don't need it unless you're making pancakes or something.

    2. Thanks, friend! I'll whip some up right now.

  4. Ugh yesssss, I knew I could count on you for a seasonal paleo treat! ;) But as a paleo newbie, I have an under-stocked pantry. Do you have suggestions for an arrowroot alternative? Maybe coconut flour? THANKS MEGAN, YOU DA BEST.

  5. Oh my goodness this looks absolutely delicious! Definitely on my "to make" list! :)

  6. this is literally the best ever! i substituted vegan butter for the butter, and pecan pieces for the arrowroot ! yum! thank you
