Healthy Apple Pie

Nothing says Thanksgiving like apple pie and even better when its a healthy apple pie!! Truth be told, I have never made a pie in my life. My crowning cooking achievement has been chocolate cheese cake. However, I love the mixture of cinnamon, apples and flaky crust. Are you getting hungry reading this?! So, I decided to do some research and make a healthy apple pie.

I made this recipe a mixture of apple pie from the 21 Day Fix and a few online healthy recipes that helped reduce the sugar and make it gluten free. I know many people are insulin resistant and have gluten allergies so I wanted everyone to be able to enjoy. Check out the healthy apple pie recipe below!
