Baked Apples 2.0

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

 

This dish speaks for itself: chunks of juicy, tender apples baked in coconut oil with plump raisins and all the fall spices… count me in! A few weeks ago I posted a baked apple recipe with caramelized almond butter, but my vision for this dish was a little different. I pictured this one as the perfect topping for vanilla yogurt or oatmeal, and that is just what it is! You can also enjoy it as-is, topped with a sprinkle of toasted walnuts and/ or chunky peanut butter. It’s also made with no added sugar, so it’s the perfect, guilt-free treat to enjoy around the holidays! Apple crisp, anyone? No thanks, I’ll take these!!
