Paleo Apple Tart

Cold weather means apple pie (or some version thereof) in my house.  Our favorite is this cinnamon-spiked apple tart encased in a pecan crust. Since my boys go gaga for anything involving baked apples, this gluten free apple tart with a high protein, grain free crust doesn’t last long around here.

I love that the boys (and their friends) gobble down a treat high in fiber and other nutrients, with a minute amount of added sweetener –this entire dessert has a mere one tablespoon of honey. While super kid-friendly, this not-too-sweet tart also makes a gluten free, dairy free dessert that is rich enough to satisfy discerning palates, hence the place it will take on on our Thanksgiving table next month.

  1. This turned out great! I’m excited that I can make something for myself for Thanksgiving. And it seems healthy enough for breakfast, so that’s what I’m having this morning.

  2. I made this last night with your tart crust. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the crust– it came out much better than a previous walnut crust from a different website I made months ago. Not too sweet and absolutely wonderful.

  3. This looks like heaven I cannot wait to make it and I love pecans. The crust is going to be my favourite part. Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum :)

  4. I made this for my coworkers today and it was a huge hit! I didn’t have a tart pan, so I used a pie dish, and I was surprised that the crust still came out clean. Delicious!!

  5. I made the apple pie the other day for a Birthday party and everyone enjoyed it. I think it tasted more as apple crisp instead of a pie but delicious! I am a vegan so I replaced the egg with an egg replacer and still was great!

  6. I made this using 2T coconut nectar instead of 1T honey. The jonagold apples I found must have been big because it took less than 4 to fill the tart (I used the same pan listed). I thought the apple portion tasted delicious. I thought the pie crust was ok, but seemed to be missing something flavor-wise. Overall it tasted like a healthy, yummy addition to the brunch we served it with today. Thank you!
