Raachel Carroll, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
What you’ll need:
Baking dish that will fit the apple slices (parchment paper lining optional - for easier clean up)
9 by 13 usually fits about 4 apples
1 organic apple per person, washed and dried
About 3 tbsp. organic cold-pressed, unrefined coconut oil* or grass-fed butter*
Organic ground cinnamon to taste, about 1-2 tsp
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Remove apple cores and slice into ¼” - ½” wide slices
Place sliced apples into the lined (optional) baking dish
Spread the slices out as evenly as possible
Drop coconut oil on top of the apple slices
Place the dish into a preheated oven for 15 minutes
Remove from oven and sprinkle with cinnamon
Stir to coat apples with melted oil/butter and cinnamon
Return dish to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes
Test apple slices for done-ness
When the apple slice can be cut using the side of a fork or spoon, the apples are done
May require a few more minutes in the oven to reach done-ness
Apples can be cooked longer for a more applesauce-like consistency, if desired
Best served warm
Keeps in fridge for up to 3 days
Extra delicious served with coconut cream whipped cream
*if you do not have your gallbladder, you may want to use less coconut oil/butter and/or eat only
a small amount of baked apples as the fat may upset your stomach
Coconut fat whipped cream
Refrigerate a can of organic whole coconut milk for at least 3 hours
Open can and place just the solid part into a large mixing bowl
The solid on top of the liquid is the coconut cream
Save the liquid portion to use in other recipes
With a hand mixer, in a stand-mixer, or with a fork beat coconut cream until whipped
About 3 - 5 minutes
Add a dash of vanilla or honey, if desired for extra flavor
Keeps in fridge 5 days
