Easy Baked Apple “Dessert” – Whole30 Approved

So easy.
So healthy!

Slice two apples and arrange in a brownie pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and add dollops of coconut spread (taste like butter- but better for you).

Bake on 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes!

Yummmmmm!!!

**Note*** 

The word “dessert” is a bad word to the die-hard-whistle-blowers in the Whole30 community. If it makes you feel any better, called this a healthy side dish? I call these baked apples a dessert because they are THAT awesome! Slap me on the wrist?

Also, there have been some concerns that Coconut Butter is not Whole30 approved. From what I’ve found, it is! So enjoy it sistas!

  2. Love this! I’m going to a ladies gathering tonight and I know there will be tons of junk food and sweets there and I was looking for something to make me feel like I had something sweet without caving. This is perfect!!! My only question, what is the white substance you are drizzling on top in the last photo?

  3. Coconut butter (also known as coconut manna) is Whole 30 approved, but Earth Balance Coconut Spread is a processed product containing canola oil and sunflower lecithin. As far as commercial spreads go, it’s better than margarine, but it’s not in keeping with the Whole 30 program.

  4. Thank you for this recipe! It IS delicious, and although it may not be “die-hard” whole30 compliant, it is in the spirit. It has saved me from failure a couple of times. 😉

  5. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

  6. It is called “Griefing,” and it’s the gaming equivalent of Internet trolling.

    Dark games are eerie, but they are also challenging to play.
    Most games have improved settings which allow you to change how the game is commanded.

  7. I have to agree with the above comment, that spread is definitely not whole 30 approved! The coconut butter they were referring to in that screenshot is something completely different from earth balance coconut spread. The only ingredient on whole 30 approved coconut butter should be coconut & nothing else. I’m sure this recipe would be amazing with real coconut butter though! I’m going to try it with that. Thanks for the recipe! And I’m with you on the what to call it thing.. I will personally be calling it breakfast. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your comment Ali. From what I can tell, it looks like the spread is ok.

      Here is more information on the particular spread that I use:
      http://www.earthbalancenatural.com/product/organic-coconut-butter/

      According to the website, Earth Balance Coconut Spread =
      Vegan
      Lactose-Free
      Gluten-Free
      USDA Certified Organic

      Made with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
      Casein-Free
      Non-GMO Project Verified
      Soy-Free

      The only thing that I see in the coconut spread ingredient list that is iffy would be the Canola Oil and the “natural flavors”. According to the Whole30 site, canola oil is technically ok.

      “Canola Oil: Yes, reluctantly (because sometimes, you have to dine out)

      While we don’t think vegetable oils are a healthy choice (understatement of the century), we don’t expressly rule them out on the Whole30. If we did, you’d never be able to eat outside of your own kitchen, because all restaurants use them in cooking. We wanted to create the healthiest program possible, but we also need it to be do-able for those who travel for business or pleasure, or simply want to dine out during the month.”

      Hope this helps!

  8. Sorry to rain on your parade, but that isn’t Whole30. Desserts as a concept are not Whole 30, and that spread definitely isn’t.

    1. Thanks Amy! You certainly did not rain on any parade over here. Yes, desserts as a concept are not whole 30. I just called these baked apples a dessert…. but you can call them a warmed fruit side dish..maybe?

      As for the coconut butter spread, here is something from a Whole9 forum that might answer some questions. http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/388-can-i-have-coconut-butter/

    2. pretty sure she covered that in her opening comments that some might not consider it compliant but thanks for raining on the parade.
