Happy 2017 my friends! I hope you had a wonderful time ringing in the new year.
Apple crisp and apple cobbler are two of my favorite desserts and this recipe combines the two so you get the best of both worlds! This dish is so healthy that you can enjoy it for breakfast. It’s free of refined sugar, dairy and gluten.
This recipe is made by scooping out the inside of apples and stuffing them with an ‘apple crisp’ filling and then topping them with a crumble topping. The crumble topping is made from simple ingredients such as oats, almond flour, pink sea salt, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract. I love the texture of the crunchy topping combined with the soft and sweet apples.
This is such a delicious and healthy dessert and I recommend serving it with some vanilla ice cream. Since it’s best served warm, the vanilla ice cream melts on top and makes this dish even more amazing! I also enjoy these baked apples for breakfast served with some vanilla yogurt and almond butter. If you’re vegan use vegan ice cream or coconut milk yogurt.
