  • 11/2 cup(s) sunflower seeds, raw
  • 3/4 cup(s) raisins
  • 1 tablespoon(s) carob powder
  • 6 medium apple(s) peeled and cored
  • 3/4 cup(s) honey, raw
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/2 medium lemon(s), juiced
  • 1/4 cup(s) coconut, unsweetened shredded
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cloves, ground (optional)


  1. Make the crust by placing sunflower seeds, raisins and carob powder in a food processor and process with the until finely ground (mixture will stick together).
  2. Line a 9 inch pie pan with mixture and form crust.
  3. Wash and core the apples.
  4. Place in food processor, and pulse chop until cut into small pieces (be careful not to chop apples too finely and make apple sauce).
  5. In a large bowl, combine chopped apples, cinnamon, lemon juice, honey and dash of cloves (optional) together.
  6. Scoop the mixture into pie crust. Save the "juice" that remains in the bowl and drizzle over pie when served. Level out with a spatula.
  7. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top of mixture.

  1. Just wanted to say I love your website and these recipes are fantastic! Also, I signed up for your Thanksgiving meal plan and that was a great idea! Keep up the great work and have a happy Paleo Thanksgiving! :-)

  2. This sounds wonderful! I am a little confused though…is it not cooked at all? Just mixed raw and put in fridge to set? Thanks!

  3. I am also confused about the instructions…. esp because you mention not wanting apple sauce from apples diced too small… yet it isn’t baked?

  4. I’d love to see a baked apple recipe. Right now I have some version that could be tweaked to go paleo. Here’s my first attempt: slice the apples pretty thin – place in a lage Tupperware with lid. In a separate container add melted coconut oil, honey, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg. Mix to a “peanut butter” like consistency. Add to apples and shake until well blended. Place in pie pan, or pyrex dish. For “crumble” topping… I used almond flour, crushed pecans, oatmeal, a touch of cinnamon, a tbsp. of brown sugar (not sure what to sub here), and teaspoon of corn oil. Topped the apples and baked. Very yummy. Could someone try and spin a paleo version? I’ve also baked it INSIDE the apple.. but I don’t like the skin consistency.
