Paleo Baked Apples: responsible carbs!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

"Responsible carbs" is a phrase I absolutely love, just recently offered to me by a Paleo Diet sparkpeople group member.

In that spirit, here is a primally responsible way to enjoy your "apple pie" this Thanksgiving...or whenever! Sounds deeelish.

PS: Get out your crockpots! It's a slow cooker recipe brought to you by Clean Eatz website.

4 Large Golden Delicious Apples

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup pecan halves
1 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Almond Flour
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 2 1/2 hours
Difficulty: easy


- Cut and core Apples - place in crock pot

- Sprinkle Cinnamon and Nutmeg to taste

- Toss with spoon in crock pot so all apple pieces get the cinnamon and nutmeg on them. Turn crockpot on to high

- In a blender add chopped walnuts and pecans, mix so they are finely chopped

- Add nut mix to bowl and add maple syrup , melted butter, almond flour and 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and mix with fork

- Spoon topping evenly on the top of the apples in the crockpot, cover and let sit on high for 2 hours

- After 2 hours remove cover from crockpot and turn crockpot to low and let bake uncovered for 30 more minuets

-Enjoy! (you might have to start hand slapping at this point)"
