Peach Pie

Peach pie has to be one of my favorite fruit pies! I never would have guessed it had I not tried it! It truly is a delicacy of the season!

Ingredients for the pie:

1 homemade gluten free or paleo pie crust

5 cups of sliced and peeled fresh, ripe peaches

1/4 cup of cassava flour

1/4 cup of tapioca flour

2 tablespoons of xyla

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of salt

Ingredients for the crumble topping:

1/3 cup of butter

1/4 cup of cassava flour

1/4 cup of arrowroot flour

1 teaspoon of cream of tarter

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

2 teaspoons of xyla

a pinch of vanilla powder


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Drain the sliced peaches of some of their juice. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until all the peaches are coated. Pour into the pie crust. Mix the crumble topping and spread over the peaches. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for another 35-45 minutes or until bubbly and browned on the top. If you care not to have peach soup, wait until the pie is mostly cooled before serving!

Note: If your crumble topping is too moist and not crumbly add equal amounts more of each of the flours.


Another fun recipe I tried this weekend was a paleo chocolate breakfast crepe! It was delicious! For the filling I used coconut greek yogurt with some peanut butter mixed in and cacao nibs sprinkled on top!

DSC_1597Last Friday we went to the Michigan State Fair in Novi, Michigan! It was so much fun!

The piglets were adorable!

Watching the Rock’n’Roll Canine Performance team was very cool!

Pig Races!

DSC_1618Yes! There were giant pot-belled pigs racing against each other!

We got to see gorgeous Saddlebred horses performing!

The Shriners circus was also there! I got to ride one of their Asian elephants!  I typically don’t like to support circuses, but this time I couldn’t resist a once in a life time experience. I looked them up on the internet afterward and found out that they treat their animals very nicely.
