These delicious baked apples are the perfect winter dessert. They are easy to make and gluten free, dairy free, paleo, and AIP friendly.
- 4 apples braeburn, honeycrisp, or gala
- 4 tsp jam for AIP make sure it is compliant, see notes below
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 tsp slivered almonds omit or use coconut flakes for AIP
- 1/2 can coconut cream the thick part on top of refrigerated coconut milk (additive free for AIP)
Wash the apples. With a knife or apple corer cut a hole into the top of the apple. Carefully removed the core of the apple while keeping the bottom of the apple (1/2 inch) intact.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the apples on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Add 1 tsp jam in the opening of each apple. Add 1/4 tsp cinnamon to every apple and finally add 1 tsp slivered almonds to every apple.
Bake for about 30- 45 minutes until the apples are soft to your liking. Baking time will vary depending on the size of your apples.
Serve with coconut cream.
Jam: Make sure the ingredients are compliant. I like this brand.
Coconut milk: INgredients should be coconut and water only.
