If you’re craving something sweet, but want to keep it somewhat healthy, be sure to try these easy baked apples. And by “baked”, I mean we are going to use my beloved Crock-Pot. You can use any kind of apples that you like, but Macintosh apples are my favorite for this recipe. This is the perfect treat when the cool temperatures of autumn start to roll in. And pssst! A tablespoon or three of brown sugar added to the nut mixture may or may not tip things into the next realm of deliciousness. Don’t tell the Paleo Police I told you.
- 5 in Apples (cored or however many fityour crock pot)
- 2 tbs Walnuts (chopped)
- 2 tbs Pecans (chopped)
- 1 tbs Raisins
- 2 tbs Grass fed butter
- 2 tsp Cinnamon (or more to taste)
- 1/2 cup Apple cider
In a large bowl, mix the walnuts, pecans, raisins, butter, and cinnamon. I use a wooden spoon for this bit of dirty work.
Using a small paring knife, cut out the apple cores, being sure to leave some apple at the bottom. Fill the apples with the nut mixture (pack it in there tight!), and place them in your slow cooker.
Pour the apple cider into the slow cooker. Set the slow cooker on low, and cook for 6−8 hours. Enjoy the smell of autumn that wafts through your kitchen!
