That time of year.

Though I’m totally always in the mood for a good pie, there’s just something about fall that has me craving them. I guess nothing quite says snuggle up and relax like a big piece of apple or pumpkin pie and a good book. For breakfast.

Er, I mean, dessert.

Seriously, though, if you’ve been around my blog long enough you’ll have noticed that I like to make my desserts healthy enough that they can be enjoyed for breakfast, as well! And of course apples are technically a breakfast food, right? Soooo….

Honey Apple Pie

Anyway, back to the pie. This Honey Apple Pie is almost as old as my blog. It was probably the first gluten-free apple pie I ever made, and it continues to be a hit every time it graces my kitchen! The filling is super simple, with only apples, honey, and a couple spices. And the double pie pastry is pretty dang easy, too!

In order to get this pie to the table as quickly as possible and not have to pre-cook the filling at all, I slice the apples as thinly as possible. Not only does that help the apples cook, it makes for some delicious apple layers in the pie, as well!

A few options.

If you have a favorite apple you’re wanting to use, feel free. My original apple for this pie was McIntosh, but I’ve come to love using Gala, too. And those are a little easier to find down here in the south, so that’s what I’m sticking with for now. 

If you can’t do dairy (which I can’t) the double pie pastry is delicious with organic lard. Otherwise, please use butter. Liquid oils like coconut, olive, or avocado will not work for the crust. Sorry!

Pie, pie, pie.

Still on the lookout for delicious and healthy pies? Here are some more for you to enjoy…

Honey Apple Pie

Free from gluten, eggs, and refined sugar.


  • 6 apples (McIntosh or Gala are good!)
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves


Slice apples thinly.

Place in a large bowl and drizzle with honey. Stir well to coat evenly.

Combine spices and sprinkle over honey coated apples, stirring while sprinkling to coat.

Let set about 5 minutes to encourage the juices to come out.

Preheat oven to 350.

Divide double pie pastry (see below!) in half. Place on half back in the fridge, and place the other half between two sheets of plastic wrap. Roll out and fit into 9-inch pie plate.

Add apple filling.

Remove other half of pastry from the fridge and roll out between two pieces of plastic wrap. Fit over filling and flute or crimp edges. Or cut into strips and form into a lattice. (If you’re not making a lattice top, make a few slashes in the top crust for steam to escape.)

Bake for 35 minutes, or until filling is bubbly. (If you notice that your crust is getting too browned, cover it with foil.)

Drizzle honey over mixture and stir in using a fork.

Slowly add water, stirring as little as possible, until a ball forms. (Not all the water may be necessary.)
