Baked, spiced apples with a scrumptious crumb topping.

Baked, spiced apples with a scrumptious crumb topping.

A while back, I did a poll of my readers to see if in the autumn they preferred pumpkin or apple recipes. Pumpkin may get all the attention, but apple won the poll, overwhelmingly!

Serve a dish of this healthy, warm apple dessert with a cup of hot coffee and you will have your own little slice of heaven right there.

To Make this Apple Dessert You Will Need:

  • apples
  • full fat coconut milk
  • cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg
  • almond flour
  • pecans
  • sea salt
  • raw honey
  • melted butter (grass-fed, or use ghee)
  • mixing bowl & spoon
  • square baking dish

The apples are cubed and lightly sweetened. You can peel them if you like, but I enjoy the color and texture that the peels provide.

The crumb topping is just barely sweetened with a touch of honey. This allows the flavor of the apples to shine through…which is usually why you want to make an apple dessert to begin with.
