Foodie Friday: Healthy Peach and Cantaloupe Pie

An interesting thing happened last week.  I baked some pies.  I’ve never baked a pie by myself before.  I’ve eaten lots of pie, I’ve been around when pie is being baked, and I’ve helped out a bit, but I’ve never actually myself made a pie.  So I decided to make a pie.  Well, a gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free pie.  You’re probably making a face.  Chillax.  I wouldn’t put it up here, let alone eat it if it wasn’t tasty.  I wasn’t raised gluten and sugar free.  This is a good recipe, I promise.  The pie crust is not entirely my recipe, but I did tweak it a bit.  Here is the original.

Pie

Mine went more like this:

  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance Butter (non-dairy but tastes/cooks like real butter), Melted
  • 2 Eggs, (I do agree that you should get good eggs.  They taste better and are much better for you.)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Raw Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Tapioca Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Refined Coconut Oil

I followed the instructions and baked the crusts first, but since I made mini pies I realized after that I should have just done it all in one go.

Crusts

For the filling:

  • 2-3 Peaches
  • Half of a Cantaloupe
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4-5 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon Tapioca Flour

Preheat oven to 400. Bring a pot of water to boil.  Make sure there’s enough water to submerge the peaches.  After you rinse the peaches off, cut a shallow X into the bottom of each.  Then drop the peaches into the boiling water for about 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and drain.  Replace the hot water with cold water, and let sit for a few minutes.  When the peaches are cool enough to handle, peel the skins off from the X marks.  Then cut the peaches in half and remove the pits.  Barely Chop the peaches and cantaloupe and add to a medium sized bowl.  Add salt, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, and tapioca.  Mix with a fork, and let sit for 5 minutes.

Add filling to crusts.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Let cool and enjoy!
