Instructions

Apple Filling:

  • In a large bowl, mix together the apples, lime juice, coconut oil, and cinnamon.
  • In a medium saucepan, stir together the coconut palm sugar and water. Heat mixture over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Mix in the coconut milk, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat, and pour caramel over the apples. Toss apples until they are fully coated in with the sauce. Set aside.

Streusel topping:

  • Mix all ingredients together using your hands. Mixture will be crumbly.

To assembly Apple Pie:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Spoon apple filling over the chilled crust, then distribute the streusel over the apples.
  • Bake pie for 10 minutes at 400°F.
  • Reduce temperature to 325°F, and cover pie with aluminum foil. Bake for another 40 minutes or until the apples are tender.
  • Cool pie completely on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

Using tart Granny Smith apples works well with this recipe because the caramel is very sweet. Also using a mixture of different types of apples adds to the texture of your pie; some stay firm, and some soften while baking.
You can also bake the crust for about 9 minutes prior to adding the apple filling.
