  • 5 cups apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon maple syrup, divided
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoon tapioca starch
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • ½ cup coconut, grated or finely shredded
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup butter or coconut oil, melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Lightly grease a 9 or 10-inch deep dish pie pan or cast iron skillet.
  • In a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, vanilla, tapioca starch, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon salt until well mixed. Pour apple mixture into prepared pan, scraping down sides to get all the juice into the pan.
