Swedish Apple Pie- Grain-Free

Swedish Apple Pie- Grain-Free

This recipe has been a family favorite for many years, given to me by a dear friend. With just a few minor adjustments to make it grain and sugar free, it still tastes fabulous and the simplicity of it is amazing. You may never make a two-crust apple pie again!


  • 5-6 large apples- peeled, cored and sliced thin
  • 2 T. pure maple syrup/honey
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ C. pure maple syrup/honey
  • 1 C. almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2/3 C. walnuts or pecans, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Fill deep dish pie plate ¾ full of sliced apples.
  3. Drizzle apples with 2 T. maple syrup, sprinkle with cinnamon and mix.
  4. Beat egg, mix in flour, salt, maple syrup and butter, stir in chopped nuts.
  5. Spoon over apple mixture and bake for 40-45 minutes, tenting with foil the last 15 minutes.


Serve warm with homemade vanilla ice cream. Can be doubled in 9 by 13” glass pan for larger yield.
