Healthier Apple Pie & Trip to Ohio

After moving to Savannah, then Hurricane Matthew rolling in and an unexpected trip to Ohio to visit family it is so unreal to me that next week starts the month of November. I remember when I was growing up wishing I was in college, the people around me always telling me to enjoy the moment because once you get older time flies by. And boy were they right.

The last two months have flown by, with my birthday, a new job, moving to a new city, the hurricane, and taking a spontaneous trip to Ohio. It seems that fall just started, but yet it is already half way over.

But let me back up to Randy and I’s trip to Ohio. Our decision came on a Wednesday, the 5th of October to be exact. It was my first week at my new job and my first full week in Savannah. That week also marked the week that Hurricane Matthew was projected to impact the East coast. That Wednesday my work was evacuating, so the second Randy’s company closed its doors on Thursday we decided to head to Ohio.

That night we ran home, took some pictures of our belongings, preparing for the worst, packed a bag, loaded Benny in the car and headed to my parents house in Newark, Ohio.

We spent the next two days with my parents, hanging out, going to some favorite coffee shops and meeting up with a few friends.

On Friday afternoon we headed to see Randy’s parents in Cincinnati.

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is take a trip to an orchard and go apple picking. If you know anything about the Savannah area, you know that finding fall things like apple picking is nonexistent. This presented to perfect opportunity to go.

We stopped at Lynd’s Fruit Farm. Luckily this orchard is pet friendly so we all got to participate in some apple picking.apple pie

If you are in the Central Ohio area, I would highly recommend this orchard. Along with apple picking they have a pumpkin patch and a full market full of veggies, fruits and locally packed goods.

After we finished filling our bag full of fresh apples, we headed out to Cincinnati to hang out with Randy’s parents for a few days.

With fresh apples comes apple pies, and today I wanted to share a healthier, gluten free version of an apple pie we enjoyed.

This apple pie was made with an almond flour crust, freshly picked apples, brown sugar and cinnamon.

I have found with baking that the more simply ingredients you use, and the less ingredients the better the pie.

Instructions
  1. Begin by using Elana's Pantry paleo pie crust recipe to make your crust. Once the crust is made, preheat oven to 350 F. Peel apples then slice thinly. Toss apples in brown sugar until completely covered. You can do an apple design or you can just pour the apples in the pie crust. I designed my slices in a rose. For crumble in a bowl with your hands combine the old fashioned oats, coconut oil and brown sugar, then crumble on top. Bake 35-45 minutes until apples are cooked and top is bubbling. Cut into 8 slices, and serve warm with ice cream on top.
