Yields 6-8 Servings


  • 5 medium size Granny Smith apples (organic, you can leave the peel on for extra fiber)

  • Roughly cut apples into small cubes and toss with the rest of ingredients. Make sure that each piece is well coated in the mix. If you don't have a specific spice, just add more of what you have on hand (for example, no nutmeg, substitute for more cinnamon).

  • Use one pie crust for the bottom of the pie, fill it up with the apple mix

  • Use one pie crust for the top, make sure that the edges are sealed well.
