That recipe name is stupid. Why do I blow at coming up with recipe titles? Whatever.

So there are some things I’ve come to figure out from working at 5am:

  1. I will not wear spandex that early. If you think I’m going to try to fit my ass into restricting pants during the 4am hour, you’re high.
  2. I now have to drink coffee on those days. If I’m not drinking coffee, I am shivering. The 4am hour is cold…and it hasn’t even snowed.
  3. While I drive to work during the 4am hour, I believe every person driving behind me is following me. And out to kill me. Rational.
  4. I am very rational during the 4am hour.

So yesterday was pretty cool. I was lucky enough to meet the absolutely gorgeous Liz from Cave Girl Eats. It’s funny how the paleo community can somehow always relate back to each other. Either we have friends in common, we’ve read each others blogs, or we are both doing similar things in our lives. I actually started oil cleansing because of Liz. Her skin is super smooth so fingers crossed mine looks like that someday! It’s just crazy how much the internet makes the world so much smaller. Anywho, Liz was speaking at an event in the Colorado Springs, where I will be speaking next week, so I decided I should definitely head down there so I could meet her and hear her speak. It was well worth it. That girl is funny as sh*t. I could have hung out with her all day. We did chat for a good 3 hours or so and I told her most of my life story. Poor girl, she didn’t even know what was coming.

Speaking of the internet bringing people together, I was recently contacted by a girl named Lauren. She has her own little etsy store where she creates CrossFit cards and kettlebell ornaments. Pretty darn cute. She sent me a turquoise sparkly kettlebell ornament. But since I don’t have a Christmas tree (which I’m sure will change since Laura is obsessed with with xmas) I have been using it as a key chain. You can’t lose that thing, it’s pretty darn bright. Check her out.

This recipe was made for Kevin. Thank you Kevin for being so incredibly generous. I hope this recipe will suffice.


Thanksgiving Baked Apple Pie Apples

  • Yield: 3 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. So first you gotta core your apples. I wasn’t very good at this, but I did it so I know it’s possible.
  3. Cut off the tops of your 3 large, plump apples and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon, being careful not puncture the peel.
  4. Dice up your other apples, place them in a bowl and toss with coconut flour, maple syrup, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  5. Add those diced apples into each one of your apple “bowls”.
  6. Now you gotta make the outside crust. I cut my lasagna sheets into strips to make a similar pie look, but you could place a whole lasagna sheet over it as well.
  7. Place the strips over your apples in any formation and wet the ends of the strips with some water, then press the strips to the apples.
  8. Sprinkle crust with a little cinnamon.
  9. Place apples in an 8×8 glass baking dish, add water to the dish to just cover the bottom, then place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until apples are soft and crust has browned.
  10. Eat up. I don’t really know the best way to eat this so you’re kind of on your own with that one.


Capello’s Gluten Free pasta is not completely paleo. But I don’t care. They have made eating pasta available for gluten free people. Therefore, I love them. If you don’t want to eat potato starch or whatever, make your own crust. No, I don’t know how to do that so do not ask.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I’ve got your blueberry muffins in the oven right now, but now I wished I would have waited just another hour til this recipe was posted!

  2. Whenever I have to get up early for a workout I just sleep in my spandex. The stuff is going to smell bad after I workout anyways, no point putting on clean stuff in the am.

  3. It’s the best.timing.ever that you’d post these today. I have a dinner party on Friday night and I have to bring dessert…. I was just about to creep ‘paleo apple pie’ when your post went up. Best day ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Also, since everything I make from your recipes is the most delicious of all the things, I am so excited for these.

  4. I get my 0600 WOD on, and have occasionally done the 0500. HUGE difference. HUGE. I second the “cold” thing. I think it’s because your body temp dropped at night and it hasn’t had a chance to come back up. 0600 is great. 0500 sucks.

    Like the pies. This has Thanksgiving promise.

  5. Hey, Juli! An easy way to core apples is to cut apples down the middle, then take a metal tablespoon (or one that has sharp sides, similar to a spoon but deeper) and align one edge of spoon to one side of core, then scoop it. It comes out clean every time. A teaspoon size works but have to go back over another time to get last bit.

  6. This looks so nomTASTIC. Juli – everytime you come up with a glorious, glorious paleo treat recipe do you say “did I do thaaaat?” ala jess’s (new girl) impression of urkel? It doesn’t matter, I picture it anyway.

  7. You are one phenomenal gal. I loved meeting you and exchanging personal stories… Next time let’s decide which BabySitters’ club characters we’re most like (am I aging myself?) and we can french braid each other’s hair!

    You rock, Juli. So excited to know you personally. By the way, you were driving REALLY slow this morning. ;P

  8. I have been in a paleo cooking funk for a while and I saw this and perked right up! Headed to Whole Foods and came home and baked these little things. I used a melon ball tool to core the apples and it worked pretty well! Sprinkled a little coconut sugar on top too and they turned out fantastic! Cant wait to make these on Christmas this year! Thanks!~

  9. These really do look delicious. Is there rice flour in the pie crust? Is that a stupid question?
    I’m been kicking myself for not utilizing the usual apple fall flavors so maybe this recipe is a sign.

  10. Also: I’m SO jealous of you Colorado-ans and your awesome paleo community there. Miami gets so lonely sometimes. Maybe one day I can fly out and have some good eats while listening to a speaking event!

  11. PLEASE stop posting such amazing things for Thanksgiving. I cant make them all and i want to eat them all…in one day. Now how am I supposed to pick between all these great dishes you posted. *head spinning,

    Rachel M there are tons of us in Miami that are Paleo and we should really start some community for a monthly dinner party or something. 🙂

  12. Hey Julie, I really only want to know one thing. Can I please please please com for Thanksgiving dinner? I promise ill be really good 😀 Seriously, thank you so much for all these great thanksgiving dishes!!!!!!!!

    1. lol Mike, I’ll probably be working at my house on Thanksgiving. Most likely eating leftovers from something, not even Thanksgiving good, so I’m kind of a bore!

  13. This looks awesome. I couldn’t find that specific brand of lasagna noodle but was able to find another gluten-free option. Do you boil the lasagna noodles first or just break them into strips? Can’t wait to try these!

  14. I have these in my oven right now. I couldn’t find anything similar to the GF lasagna and didn’t have time to order it so I made a pecan pie “crust” and just globbed it on the top like a “crisp”. We shall see how it turns out. It sure is smelling good!!! Soooo excited to try them!

  15. I wonder if the crust from your Apple Pie Tartlet recipe would work if it was rolled out and cut into strips? It might add a nice texture to the top with the pecans and all.

  16. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently! fcgddeegkeef

  17. What about making a crumble type topping ~ avoid the pasta pseudo pie crust all together. Unsure on boiled then baked pasta with cinnamon sugar– it’s not thanksgiving and I don’t have any Plump apples in my house.

    Chopped nuts. Honey. Bit of salt. 1 T flax meal? OH and a bit o’ fat (butter, coconut oil, etc.): Mix, test, apply (or eat the test batch and make another batch for the plump stuffed apples).
