Serves: 4 baked apples
 
Ingredients
  • 4 (macintosh) apples
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tb coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk (I like this brand)
  • 2-4 tb honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tb cooked pumpkin, kabocha, or butternut squash
  • 1-2 tbs rum (optional, non-AIP)
  • mint (optional)
Instructions
  1. Core apples partway (leave the bottom of the apple intact) and slit the skin around the middle (so apples don't burst while baking...not speaking from personal experience here or anything).
  2. Rub apples with coconut oil/place a little oil inside the hole, and sprinkle with salt and cinnamon.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, for ~40 minutes or until apples are cooked through.
  4. Coconut creme anglaise: blend coconut milk with vanilla, maple syrup, pumpkin/squash, rum, and pinch of cinnamon.
  5. Plate apples, pour cream around, and enjoy the party ;)
