Cinnamon Maple Crunch Pie


This is Emily from here to share another yummy dessert recipe: Cinnamon Maple Crunch Pie. Get ready for some ultra creamy and irresistibly crunchy deliciousness. I’m in LOVE with this pie, and I’m so happy to share the love with you.


I don’t know about you, but I’m dying for fall! Here in Texas, it’s almost October and still 100 degrees! But anything with cinnamon makes me feel like it’s fall.

Some people go crazy for pumpkin spice, but I’m all about the CINNAMON! This pie reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal (but in a much healthier, unprocessed way.) The main ingredients are just a few simple whole foods: almonds, coconut and maple syrup.


This pie filling is one of the smoothest, SILKIEST fillings, EVER. And it’s so EASY to make. Mix and pour– that’s it! Paired with the crispy, crunchy maple cinnamon topping, … omg! SO good. Plus it only takes 5 minutes in a skillet to make the super simple granola. And your house will smell AMAAAZING! (You’re welcome!)


Excuse me while I crank up my AC and pretend it’s cold outside. And try not to eat this ENTIRE. PIE.

    1. I want to try this with walnuts and dates ( so yummy looking). Seems easy enough to switch out with food intolerances. Thanks. Still warm in Washington.
    2. This looks lovely! Any idea on the measurement for the coconut cream? I buy Trader Joe's coconut cream, so the whole can is pretty much just solid cream. :) Maybe 1/2 c.???
    3. This is so yummy!! My whole family loved it. It is not too sweet and a nice change from the chocolate, banana, or peanut butter desserts that we usually eat. I will be making this again. Thank you for sharing!
