5 mins


15 mins




  • 2 oz.
     room temperature
  • 1 oz.
    pecans or walnuts
  • 4 tbsp
    coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp
    ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • 1
    tart/sour apple

For serving

  • 3/4 cup
    heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp
    vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix soft butter, chopped nuts, coconut flour, cinnamon and vanilla into a crumbly dough.

  2. Rinse the apple, but don't peel it or remove the seeds. Cut off both ends and cut the middle part in four slices.

  3. Place the slices in a greased baking dish and add dough crumbs on top. Bake for 15 minutes or more or until the crumbs turn golden brown.

  4. Add heavy whipping cream and vanilla to a medium-sized bowl and whip until soft peaks form.

  5. Let the apples cool for a couple of minutes and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.


These baked apples can be served with whipped cream, full-fat crème fraiche, mascarpone, or a slice of cheddar. If you're allergic to nuts you can simply exclude them or substitute sunflower or sesame seeds to keep the crunch.
