Apple CObbler Pie that won't leave you in a sugar coma on the couch!

Apple Cobbler Pie that won’t leave you in a sugar coma on the couch!

Thanksgiving is upon us, and while it is only one meal, we can have a tendency to turn it into a WHOLE DAY or SEVERAL DAY production leading to severe over-consumption of not-so-waistline-friendly-yet-very-comforting foods (you like that dashing?)  So here is a recipe from our very own @paleogirlinthecity for a paleo-friendly alternative to copious amounts of pumpkin pie.

Filling
  1. 6-8 apples
  2. Juice of 1 lemon
  3. 2T cinnamon
Topping
  1. 1/2 c walnuts
  2. 1/2 c pecans
  3. 1/2 c coconut flakes
  4. 10 dates
  5. 8T unsalted butter
  6. 1T cinnamon
  7. 1/4 t nutmeg
  8. 1/4 t sea salt (fine)
  9. 1/4 c honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel and coarsely chop all of your apples and place them in a medium mixing bowl. Juice your lemon (either by the good old squeeze method if you don’t mind fishing out seeds or be a little more precise with a citrus juicer) and add to apple along with cinnamon. Stir until apples are evenly coated.
  3. In a food processor pulse walnuts, pecans, coconut, and dates until a coarse “sand.” Add spices and pulse a few more times. Cut butter in 1/4-1/2 T chunks and add to the mix. Pulse until butter pieces are the size of peas. Add honey and pulse until combined.
  4. Place apples in an 8×8 cake pan, a pie dish, or some other vehicle of about the same size. Using your hands, drop pieces of the topping evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top in golden brown and apples are tender. You may want to check the cobbler at about 25 minutes to see if it’s browning too fast on the top. In that case just loosely cover the top with foil for the remaining baking time.
