Apple Pie Bites (gluten, grain, dairy, and sugar free) | deliciousobsessions.com

Apple pie.

There is nothing better on a cool fall day than a piece of warm apple pie and ice cream. Well, in my book there's nothing better. I'm sure some would disagree. 😉

Seeing that I am gluten and grain free, as well as watching my sugar intake, I rarely indulge in treats like that. I also have yet to find an allergen friendly apple pie recipe that really “hits the spot”.

So, in an effort to create the apple pie flavor, in a small, portion controlled, low sugar version, I came up with these apple pie bites. The recipe was inspired by a recipe that I saw on PaleOMG earlier this year.

They make the perfect little treat for when I want something sweet, but want to avoid excess sugar. Most of the time, I make these unsweetened, even omitting the stevia, as I find the coconut butter has enough natural sweetness when paired with the apples. But, if I'm making them for family or friends, I'll add some honey or stevia in there to jazz it up a tad.

PLEASE READ!!!! Quick note about “coconut cream concentrate” and “coconut butter”, since I get asked this all the time.

Whenever I refer to those two terms in my recipes, it means the product that is super finely ground coconut meat, which has a consistency similar to a nut butter. It's not referring to coconut milk or coconut cream (the liquid beverage-type products), and it's not referring to those vegan “butters” that often use coconut oil in them.

You cannot substitute dairy butter for coconut butter, nor can you substitute coconut oil for coconut butter.

Please read this post where I talk about coconut products in detail and clear up the common confusion with ingredient names.

Also, the texture of the cookies may vary depending in the brand(s) of coconut products you use. I have found in my years of cooking that there can be a big difference between brands of coconut products and how they work in recipes. For this recipe, I found I got the best results when I used coconut cream concentrate from Tropical Traditions and coconut flour from my local health food store. If you find that your dough is too dry, just add a tablespoon or two of coconut milk (or milk of your choice) to the mix until you get the right consistency.
