Watch how to make these Healthy Apple Pie Minis!
Pie minis are my fave because 1.) They’re mini! Need I say more?? 2.) Let’s be honest, I can’t cut a pretty slice of regular sized apple pie without it looking like a giant mess of gooey disaster, then try to make it look photogenic, and then attempt to convince you that it’s as delicious as it SHOULD look. However, if you did happen to make these Healthy Apple Pie Minis into one big pie, I’m pretty sure that you would be convinced 😉 Oh and 3.) I still don’t have a regular pie pan (🙈). I know, I KNOW. After all this time as a food blogger I don’t own a pie pan. How is this possible?
It’s one of those annoying little purchases where I’m always thinking “Wow, why don’t I have a pie pan, I really need a pie pan! I just need to go get one already”. And then I go to the store, get swept away in all of the other things I “need”, get to the pie pan and think….”meh, I’ll get it next time”.
So here I am, still pie pan-less. And Thanksgiving is coming soon, which will mean all the healthy pie recipes (OBVS). And I have so many pies to make! What am I doing??? OHMYGOSHINEEDAPIEPAN.
Ok, friends. I’m going to get one. I am. Mark my words.
These Healthy Apple Pie Minis are perfect for fall!

After making the dough for these Healthy Apple Pie Minis, I placed the dough in a muffin tin and used a fork to make the edges. However, a Mini Pie Pan would also do the trick!
