I’m really sensitive to sugar. Like really sensitive. Like I break out from honey or dates sensitive. I can’t do sugar alternatives, either. I tend to have a bad reaction to anything with added sweeteners. You know what that means? No desserts. Sad.
Now, this is okay. Desserts and treats are not healthy. I don’t care if someone says pecan pie drenched in caramel is healthy just because it is grain free and sweetened with honey. It’s not. Better than conventional, sure. But not healthy.
When on a healing diet, the focus should be on vegetables, meat, and healthy fats. And yet the recipes that circle the internet are all for desserts. That’s what people want to look at, so that’s what food bloggers and their readers share. So then you (well, me) crave cookies. So you google “sugar free cookies” and your browser is filled with recipes using artificial sweeteners or large amounts of honey. Not sugar free!
Add in food sensitivities and it becomes even harder to find a recipe that works for you and your family. That is why I created an allergen-free apple pie recipe. I wanted something that fit not only my needs, but fit the needs of all the people out there who really want pie. This crust is gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and sweetener-free. It is 21 Day Sugar Detox compliant. It can easily be modified to be made egg-free, autoimmune protocol, or vegetarian/vegan as well. And because I upped the spices compared to traditional apple pie, it still tastes really good.
