  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

For the pie crust

For the pie filling
  1. Peel, core, and cut in 1/8 inch slices (mine are never exact)
  2. In a large bowl, evenly coat all your apple slices in cinnamon, lemon juice, and arrowroot.
  3. Fan out your apples in a circle onto the uncooked crust starting from the outside in.
  4. Continue the same process until you run out of apples.
  5. Cover tart with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 45-70 minutes, or until juices are bubbling.
  6. Remove the foil and bake an additional 5-10 minutes, so it gets that nice brown color and the crust is a bit toasted.
  7. You can serve this with homemade whip cream, fresh yogurt, or on its own. Enjoy!
