Baked Apple Bowl

GF DF SF V VG

Serves: 4

Fall is a season that so many people enjoy. Crisp air, seasonal foods, and pumpkin-flavored everything!

Being in the New England area, I particularly enjoy the variety of fresh apples and the different recipes that I can create with them.

This seasonally inspired dessert will be a hit in your household. Most classic fall dishes are loaded with sugar or sweetened with artificial flavors. My baked apple bowl has no added sugar, is free of all grains, and topped with homemade granola.

Ever thought that dessert could be packed with fiber, protein, and healthy fats?!

This dish has gut-friendly benefits and will keep you on track with all the upcoming holiday foods that are so hard to resist. Plus, there is nothing like a warm, delicious dish on a cold fall day.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Step 2

Mix pecans, coconut flakes, and raisins together with melted coconut oil, maple syrup, sea salt, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Continue to stir while the granola is baking so that it doesn’t burn. Take out of the oven and allow to cool. Then sprinkle on top of the apple.
