Don't Be So Crusty!

When it comes to making a grain-free pie, many health-conscious individuals choose almond flour as an alternative to conventional flour, but that substitute may not be so healthy after all as Lauren Geersten notes in her article 5 Reasons to Avoid Almond Flour.

Here are 3 grain-free pie alternatives that do not involve almond flour:

1. Instead of apple pie, try baked apple slices with some cinnamon sprinkled on them.

2. Instead of pecan pie, sauté pecan pieces in butter or coconut oil.

3. Instead of coconut cream pie, enjoy a small bowl of chilled coconut milk with berries in it.

There you go, some simple paleo alternatives for you to enjoy that are free of grains and almond flour. Now you can have your pie and eat it too!
