Paleo Peach Mini Pies
Grain free, paleo peach mini pies with a low-carb, keto version.
Paleo Peach Chia Mini Pies are a delicious way to add chia seeds to your diet. One of the best things that can happen to your mouth, is eating a ripe peach. Especially if it's in a pie.
I found some amazing, ripe peaches at the farmer's market.
I purchased a bag full for eating and baking. If you don't have access to ripe peaches, then you could defrost some frozen, organic peaches for this recipe.
The frozen peach slices work well in this recipe too.
These mini pies have a low-carb version depending on which sweetener of choice is used.
I made my grain-free, nut-free pie crust and filled it with an awesome peach filling.
Why do I always make mini pies or tarts instead of whole pies or tarts? I make them because it gives me better portion control. Okay, it's actually because I get more pie crust per bite, lol.
You may use a mini tart pan, but I used a muffin pan.
I should get a lovely tart pan. The photo below is the pie crust that I pressed and smashed in the pan with my fingers. The next photo is the crust with the peach filling.

- 1 tablespoon Sweetener of choice: 1tbsp honey for Paleo version or 26 drops liquid stevia, or 1 tablespoon erythritol ( for low carb version)
- THE FILLING:
- 1 cup ripe peaches peeled and chopped ( could used defrosted frozen peaches).
- ¼ cup Sweetener of choice: ¼ coconut sugar for paleo version, or ¼ cup erythritol plus ¼ teaspoon liquid stevia for low carb version.
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds plus 1 tablespoon water * optional for extra fiber
- ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or make your own (¼ teaspoon cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger, ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg).
- Preheat oven to 375 F, and oil or grease a muffin pan or mini tart pan.
- If using chia seeds (optional), mix with water in a small bowl and put in the fridge for 15 minutes.
- Chop and peel peaches, and put peaches (including any juices) into a large mixing bowl.
- Add sweetener of choice, and 1 tablespoon coconut flour to peaches in bowl.
- Toss the peaches, sweetener, and coconut flour around to coat.
- If using optional chia seeds, add chia seed water gel to mixture and stir in.
- Let mixture set on counter for 30 minutes.
- While filling is setting, start making the pie crust.
- In medium bowl add all pie crust ingredients and mix well with fork until dough forms.
- Squeeze dough into 6 balls.
- Place dough balls into muffin pan and press and mush dough around too cover at least half of each muffin depression in pan.
- Once thirty minutes has passed and filling has thickened a little, then fill each crust with the peach filling (to just slightly below the edge of crust).
- Bake for 20 minutes, but check at 14 minutes and see if crust edges are browning too fast. If they are then loosely cover the top of muffin pan with a parchment paper sheet or foil sheet and continue baking.
