Beef + Onion Pie (paleo)

I must start with saying that adding cinnamon in dishes is delicious! I haven’t really had it in any dishes more than oatmeal, pancakes and baking treats, but today I tried it in my meat sauce I made for a pie and it was absolutely a hit!

I don’t know the exact amount of everything here I just used my feeling, so the measurements are me guessing how much I used 🙂

Beef and Onion Pie (paleo) 


  • 2 dl almond flour
  • 1/2 dl coconut flour
  • 50 g coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk
  • a sprinkle of herb salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 dl hot water


  • beef (probably about 500g)
  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 mushrooms
  • 1 big carrot, shredded
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato pure
  • black pepper, salt, chili powder, and a lot of cinnamon


  • 1 egg
  • 1 dl almond milk

-> Start by mixing all the dry ingredients for the crust. Add the coconut oil (room temperature) and mix with your hands until it becomes more like a dough. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Put some coconut oil along the bottom and sides of a pie-dish. Press out the dough in a thin layer. But in the fridge for 30 minutes. Turn on the oven on 175 degrees C.

While the crust is in the fridge start with the filling. Chop the onions and fry in coconut oil on medium-high heat in a pan. When it starts to get see through, take them off. Add instead the beef and fry until light brown, then add back the onions, chopped mushrooms, the shredded carrot, diced tomatoes, tomato pure and the spices. Let boil together for a few minutes.

Take out the crust and put in the oven for 10 minutes. When it is done, add the filling. Mix together the egg and milk for the topping and pour over for a even layer. Put in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. Take out and serve with a fresh salad!

I got some meat sauce over (didn’t fit in the pie crust), which is perfect for some other lunch boxes together with pasta, steamed veggies or something to keep the variation.


 This pie is 100% paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and free from added sugar!
