Can’t go wrong with this classic apple pie!
This Healthy Gluten Free Apple Pie Will Put You In The Holiday Spirit
Can’t get anymore classic than an apple pie for the holidays! This gluten free apple pie is eeeevvvveeerrrryyyythiiiiiing!!!
Having Celiac Disease has forced me to be creative in the kitchen. I once thought my days of enjoying delicious Thanksgiving pies were over. I had no idea all of the ways to bake a healthy gluten free pie! Being from Washington State, apples are kind of a big deal.
I used Honeycrisp Apples for this pie, but you could also go with Golden Delicious, Jonagold, or Braeburn.
Enjoy and happy holidays babes!

- FOR GLUTEN FREE APPLE PIE CRUST
- I used a gluten free pie mix from Bob’s Red Mill – find it below! 👇🏼
- FOR GLUTEN FREE APPLE PIE FILLING
- 5 medium apples, peeled, cored and diced
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- pinch of ground cloves
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, about 1/2 of a lemon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- FOR CRUST
- 1. Prepare crust according to directions. It will require the dough to chill for an hour. But, while that is chilling, you can prepare the apple pie filling. The package makes enough for two crusts, which you will need if you plan to make a double crust apple pie like the one pictured.
- FOR FILLING
- 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- 2. Place apples, arrowroot, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves into a large mixing bowl and toss to coat the apples completely. Add the maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla and toss well.
- 3. Prepare crust onto a lightly oiled pie dish. I use a small amount of olive oil for this.
- 4. Pour pie filling into dish. Use a spatula to spread the mixture evenly. Carefully add the top crust.
- 5. Bake for 50 minutes. Check the pie at the half way mark. If it is browning too quickly, cover it with foil for the remaining cook time. The crust should be golden brown. Allow at least 15 minutes to cool and allow the filling to stiffen slightly. Serve and enjoy!
- Optional: Dollap some coconut whip for a really decadent dessert!
