I had seen a recipe somewhat similar to this somewhere in the world of interwebs a long time ago, and I figured I would finally get around to making it by memory, using what I had at hand.
Having bought some super sour Granny Smiths apples the week before, I figured I should use the last one to something sweet, and so I did! Baking apples turns out to be not much of a challenge anyway, and it only needs a little help from a couple of ingredients to turn it into something dessert-worthy, I kid you not!
You can serve this with a dollop of whipped cream or granola, homemade ice cream - you name it! Now, I even had the thought of making an "apple pie" sweet "yorkshire" pudding, that would be phenomenal! But for now, let's stick to the basics (...but do let me know if you dare take on that challenge - it sounds like a tasty one ^ ^ )
1 apple, cored
1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp xylitol, sukrin gold or brown sugar
- Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.
- Now, place your apple in a baking dish or in a foil-bowl. Have the coconut oil or butter in the well of the apple, followed by a good sprinkle of cinnamon and then the sweetner.
- Place the apple in the middle of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Take out and let it cool slightly before serving it either as it is, or with ice cream, whipped cream, granola or anything else you can think of that would go with it!
Also, the other day, some of my friends and I had our Christmas workshop, Part 1, and I thought I'd include some of the things we made!
