Cooking time




  • For the crust
  • 1.5 cup (180g) tigernut flour

  • 3/4 cup (140g) arrowroot

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • Pinch of salt

  • 4 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup water

  • If you are not on AIP or paleo diet you can use a store bought gluten-free pie crust instead of the above.

  • For the apple filling
  • 2.2 pounds (1 kg) apples

  • 1 cup (300 g) non added sugar apple sauce

  • Optional : 2 Tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 390°F (200°C)
  • In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients (tigernut flour, arrow root, cinnamon and salt). Then add the olive oil, water and maple syrup and mix until well combined. It should quickly form a dough.
  • Roll out the dough between 2 parchment papers, using a rolling pin. Remove the top parchment paper and transfer the dough to a 27cm/10.6in diameter pie tin on the other parchment paper.
  • Prick the pie with a fork to prevent it from inflating. Put it for 10 minutes in the oven to precook it.
  • In the meantime, peel the apples, remove the seeds and cut them in thin slices.
  • Spread the apple sauce evenly over the precooked pie crust. Add the apple slices on top of the apple sauce, starting with the exterior.
  • Optional: pour the mapple syrup over the apples to give them a little caramelised flavour. Put the pie in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until it gets a nice golden color. And voilà! Let it cool and serve.
    Bon appétit !
