Have you ever had baked apples? This recipe really brings me back to childhood. My mother absolutely loved to make these during the cold fall and winter nights as dessert. I’ve changed up her recipe by using coconut sugar, which is low glycemic, and actually increased the butter a bit. They are absolutely fabulous with a little dollop of freshly made whipping cream!  I didn’t have any pecans or walnuts, but used some chopped nuts that I had on hand…and it was still yummy! It will make your house smell incredible too!

The other great thing about these is that you can make as many or as few as you need because the recipe is for one finished apple….just double, triple, quadruple it!

This recipe is naturally gluten and grain-free…bonus!
