Baked Cinnamon Apples

IMG_2508

Though the strange weather we’ve been having seems to have settled down, these proved really comforting and warming when the snow was falling down in April. These quick and really easy treats are delicious and keep you feeling warm inside when they’re hot or cold. I recommend using red apples as I personally find green ones too acidic and they don’t go as well with the cinnamon. The apples I used in this recipe were pink lady apples but please adjust to your own personal taste. These are great for getting rid of any sweet cravings you may have when trying to do strict paleo initially and also make a great tasty dessert to impress your non-paleo friends.

Recipe:

Preheat an oven to 180°C. Remove the core of the apples either by using an apple corer or byslicing the apples in half and then carefully cutting around the core. Place the apples cut side up on a tray. I suggest lining the tray with tin foil or grease proof paper just to prevent the apples from burning/sticking to the tray (even if it’s non stick); this just saves on washing up mainly.

Take the cinnamon into your hand and sprinkle over the apples. Try to get an even covering of cinnamon on the apple to prevent any overly sweet areas; this can be tricky but not a major issue.

Once covered place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Once ready either serve hot or allow to cool before taking them, as I did, off to work in a Tupperware with you.

  1. A very light application of sea salt (very light) can enhance the flavor of the cinnamon and apple in this recipe quite a bit! It helps to draw some of the surface sugars out of the apple, and can provide a light glaze after the baking.
