Apple Cinnamon Mini Pie Pockets (grain free)

I never liked apple pie as a kid in spite of wanting to. Every time I tried it something about the texture of the apples was never quite right to me; they would be partially crunchy with peels still clinging to the sides. Finally I’ve learned what I didn’t like about it! Crunchy cooked apple isn’t for me. 

Ingredients:

  • This apple filling 
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup granular swerve
  • 4 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Dash of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Make apple filling.
  2. In a large microwavable mixing bowl, combine mozzarella and cream cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds to a minute, until cheese begins to melt.
  3. Remove from microwave and vigorously stir with fork.
  4. Add egg and stir.
  5. Add swerve, cinnamon, salt, coconut flour, and almond flour. Mix together until doughy. You will need to knead with your hands towards the end.
  6. Using a folded piece of parchment paper and rolling pin, pull a small ball of dough out. Roll the dough into a rectangle shape about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Spoon a large spoonful of apples into the middle. Using the parchment paper, fold the sides of the dough over the apples, enveloping them in a pouch. Set aside on baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until dough is used up.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes.
  10. Enjoy.
