1/2 cup butter

2 eggs

1/4 cup honey

3/4 cup coconut flour (sifted)

1/2 cup of diced up apples

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Pinch Salt

  3. Pour mixture into blender and blend on medium until smooth.
  4. In a large bowl whisk in coconut flour with blended goodness for 2 minutes.
  5. Knead dough for about a minute and then form a ball. If it is too sticky, knead in a little more coconut flour.
  6. Set aside 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of dough for topping later.
  7. Roll out dough between wax paper to form pie crust.
  8. Butter bottom of a 9-inch pie pan and place dough in pan.

Tip: Coconut flour can be flaky to work with so don’t panic if your dough is not sticking like traditional wheat-based flour. Use a spoon or your thumbs to smooth out your dough in your pie pan.
