Homemade Natural Shoofly Pie without Sugar

Shoofly pie is one of the lesser known pies derived from Amish origins. The traditional pie contains enormous amounts of sugar and other non paleo ingredients.  Although not completely paleo, this pie comes pretty close and is perfect for gatherings or just a evening dessert.

Filling:

1 Cup of pure molasses (the most natural you can find)

1 egg

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup hot water

2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder

Topping:

1 cup coconut flour

½ cup tapioca flour

4 tablespoons honey

2 eggs

¼ cup butter

1 Paleo Pie crust

Directions:

Mix all the filling ingredients and pour into pie crust. Make sure arrowroot powder is all mixed in with no clumps. Mix coconut flour, tapioca flour, honey, and eggs. Add ¼ cup of butter, sliced and chilled, and mix in by hand until it forms little clumps. Pour crumbs on top of filling and bake at 400 degrees until the outside is firm but the center is still jiggly (about 30 minutes).

Strawberry Frosting (without the sugar and artificial junk!)

An excellent natural alternative to the food coloring filled spread you buy at the store (tastes better too!)

Strawberry Frosting

1 ½ cups of coconut cream or raw cows milk cream

1 cup of strawberry puree (blend one cup of frozen strawberries until smooth)

¼ cup of honey

A few dashes of stevia

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in an electric mixer and mix until fluffy. Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Best if used within the same day.

Homemade Chocolate Chips

I hate to call anything that isn’t meat, veggies, fruit, or nuts paleo, but these chocolate chips are as “paleo” as you can get for the excellent taste!

1 cup butter or coconut oil

1/3 cup of chocolate

½ cup of honey

1 teaspoon arrowroot powder

Directions:

Melt oil in sauce pan over medium heat. Add chocolate and arrowroot powder and whisk in until all clumps are gone. Add honey and mix well. Let simmer while whisking constantly for about 5 minutes. Pour into 8” by 8” baking pan that is lined with parchment paper and refridgerate until hardened. Pull parchment paper out and cut into little squares or chunks.
