Paleo Apple Pie

1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1/2 cup ground hazelnuts
2 tbsp butter/coconut oil
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
4 apples (peeled, cored and thinly sliced)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 can coconut milk
2 tbsp coconut butter
2 eggs
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp all spice
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F)
2. If using whole nuts, grind to a fine flour in a food processor. Personally I like it a little crunchy so I didn't make the nuts too fine
3. Mix in butter, salt and egg
4. Press into pie tin so that it evenly covers the base and sides
5. Bake for 10 minutes
1. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and coat with lemon juice and some cinnamon in a bowl
2. Whisk eggs in a bowl and set aside
3. Pour coconut milk/cream into a saucepan, add coconut butter and heat till the coconut butter has melted and the mixture is almost boiling
4. Carefully add a spoonful to the eggs whilst beating vigourously. Continue to slowly add the coconut mixture until thoroughly combined and then add in vanilla, cinnamon and other spices
5. In the cooled pie crust layer apple slices until they fill the pie
6. Pour custard mixture over the apples and place in the oven for about 50 minutes
7. Enjoy with pastured double cream, coconut ice-cream or coconut cream
