I love how easy this Paleo apple dessert recipe is and how quickly it comes together. My children love to help make these because they are fun to make. Where I live here in Utah, it used to be lots of orchards. Tons and tons of orchards. Mostly apple, peach, pear, apricot, etc.
Then 50 years ago (or more), the orchards started getting replaced with houses. Right where my house is now, about 45 years ago, was an apple orchard. Almost all the orchards are gone now. They’ve all moved about a half hour/hour south of here and there are very few left. The land is just too valuable.*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links.

But luckily, they are a few orchards left, mostly apple orchards. Have you ever had an apple fresh from an apple orchard? Like 10 times better than the apples you buy in the store. I’m not kidding. So. much. better. Not surprising though. Everything tastes so much better when it’s fresh and allowed to ripen on the plant. You know what I mean if you’ve ever grown your own tomatoes.
Oh, you have to try fresh oranges sometime. The juice tastes a lot like Tampico, which I never had until I married my husband and he grew up drinking it and thought I would like it. I don’t really like it (and I can’t eat it on the Paleo diet), but I LOVE fresh orange juice.
So it’s fall around here and it’s easy to buy a box of super-good, fresh apples at one of the many fruit stands. One of the things I love about this recipe is that it doesn’t have apple pie sauce on it. Personally, I despise apple pie sauce. It makes the apples mushy and I hate the flavor and texture of the apple pie sauce. I totally hate apple pie. The only way I can get it down is to heat it up and put some milk on it.
Then I can kind-a-sort-a eat it. Good thing I’m on the Paleo diet now and have an excuse not to eat apple pie. There is one thing I do like about apple pie though – the crust – SO GOOD! So I love that this Paleo apple dessert brings together the yummy apple crust, but the apples inside aren’t all soggy and gross. Instead, they are basically roasted and so good.
I didn’t put what kind of apple to put in the pie because I’m going to leave that decision up to you. I’ll let you choose if you want sweet or tart apples, etc. However, there are certain kinds of apples that work better in pies. Some good apples I like for baking are Fuji, (which are usually easy to find and pretty sweet), granny smith, Jonagold, Rome or golden delicious.
What’s your favorite type of apple for eating and for baking? My six-year-old daughter practically lives off apples and we use an apple corer slicer like this daily. And if you want to make the job of coring, peeling and slicing easy and uniform, using something like this is awesome (not to mention fun).
