Ingredients you will need

  • large apples: cut in half and cored
  • coconut oil: or any neutral-tasting oil. You may also use butter.
  • coconut sugar: or any other sugar like brown sugar or cane sugar.
  • whole wheat flour: any other flour will work too. Try Gluten-free or oat flour.
  • rolled oats: works better than quick oats
  • cinnamon: please do not try to skip using cinnamon.

How to make these baked apples

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange the apples cut side up in a baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the coconut oil, coconut sugar, whole wheat flour, oats, and cinnamon. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  • Spoon the oat mixture evenly into the centers of the apples.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until tender. Serve.

Recipe tips

  • Pick apples that are both sweet and tangy with a crispy skin that won’t break down when baked. Which was ideal for this Baked Apple Recipe. Try different apples and mix and match them in your baking until you find the right ones for you. Here are a select few that will work great for baking: Jonathans, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, Melrose, Golden Delicious, Gala, and McIntosh.
  • Do use rolled oats instead of quick oats
  • You may cook the apples longer. If you like the apples to be much more on the well-done side, cover the dish with foil and bake for the first 15 minutes, and then uncover to continue baking.
  • Serve with Healthier ice cream options.

    absolutely delicious! I did not have any coconut oil on hand. I subbed the coconut oil for olive oil. The end result is awesome! I don’t feel guilty for eating this at all. I will make a batch for my friend this weekend for her birthday. Thanks!

    This recipe was great, but it was a bit too sweet for my tastes. Next time I will try it with half the amount of coconut sugar.
