It's been such a stressful week that I really wanted a "dessert". But since i'm still trying to keep the Whole30 going, I'm avoiding all sugars. This includes honey, maple sugar and any and all sugars. But eating fruits is Whole30 approved! Usually, I love baked apples on top of some vanilla bean ice cream with a cup of tea! But the best part is the apples, not really the ice cream.
Also, everytime I eat apple all I want is more warm cinnamon apple filling-- I can do without the crust. So naturally, I "paleofied"/ "Whole30-ed" my favorite dessert/fruit.
Yes-this filled that little sweet craving and is done in less than 5 minutes total. I am on my second round of Whole30 (I'm trying to keep it going...) but am past being a slave to my dessert dragon. If you are still on your first Whole30 and have an unhealthy relationship with "dessert" foods, then I'd avoid calling it a dessert... it's just warm fruit (like in pies. ;) )
1 Fuji (or Pink lady) apple
1/2 tbs. coconut oil, melted
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
**plastic ziploc bag
Directions: Peel your apple and cut it up in slices. I was home this weekend, so I got to use one of my moms fancy gadgets to cut my apple. But a regular 'ol knife and peeler work just fine. Sometimes I cut them up into smaller pieces and sometimes I leave them in wedges- up to you! Place cut apple and the rest of your ingredients in a plastic bag. Place in microwave for 2 minutes 15 seconds.
Make sure to leave a small "un-zipped" hole in your bag. This allows for the apples to breathe a little as their cooking. Be careful when taking out of the microwave, bag is really hot! ~ENJOY
If that worries you as well, one of the readers suggested a microwave safe bowl with a loosly fit lid-THANKS!
