Enjoy a little slice of Autumn with this fresh, gluten-free apple pie. My favorite baking apple for pie is McIntosh. I core them and slice them as thin as possible for a perfect pie. A faster way to do this is to core them and use the slicing disc on your food processor and you'll have all the apples sliced in about 60 seconds! To grind chia seeds, use a coffee grinder or the dry container of your Vitamix. I use coconut sugar because it is a low-glycemic sweetener but you could also use maple sugar, Sucanat, or an organic cane sugar.
