Going into Day 3 of the Whole30 I was desperate for something sweet. Knowing that I can’t have any added sugar I turned to an old favorite from when I was little, baked apples!! I searched online for some Paleo slow cooker baked apples recipes and came across two different ones that sounded really good. I decided to do a combination of both to make my own version. I have to give credit to Fast Paleo and Clean-Eatz
½ cup raisins
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp butter to grease bottom of pot
¼ cup almond flour
½ cup chopped pecans
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp butter melted
Core and chop up apples
Put butter at the bottom of slow cooker. Add apples, raisins, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir to mix all together
In a bowl melt the butter, then add the almond flour, nuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix together with a fork
Place nut mix over the top of the apples
Let apples cook on high for 2 hours. Then drop the temperature to low, uncover and cook for another 30 minutes. Stir and enjoy!! I only use pastured butter because that is what is allowed. You could also use coconut oil in place of the butter.
Here is my final product….and it was definitely a hit. I will be making this again The picture below is with a little extra almond flour sprinkled on top to make it more like a deconstructed apple pie.
Do you have any paleo desserts that you really enjoy? Or a site that you go to for good recipes?
