Paleo Slow Cooker Baked Apples

Going into Day 3 of the Whole30 I was desperate for something sweet. Knowing that I can’t have any added sugar I turned to an old favorite from when I was little, baked apples!! I searched online for some Paleo slow cooker baked apples recipes and came across two different ones that sounded really good. I decided to do a combination of both to make my own version. I have to give credit to Fast Paleo and Clean-Eatz

Ingredients:

6 apples

½ cup raisins

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 Tbsp butter to grease bottom of pot

 

Topping:

¼ cup almond flour

½ cup chopped pecans

½ cup chopped walnuts

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

1 Tbsp butter melted

Directions:

  1. Core and chop up apples
  2. Put butter at the bottom of slow cooker. Add apples, raisins, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir to mix all togetherIMG_0807
  3. In a bowl melt the butter, then add the almond flour, nuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix together with a forkIMG_0805
  4. Place nut mix over the top of the applesIMG_0811

Let apples cook on high for 2 hours. Then drop the temperature to low, uncover and cook for another 30 minutes. Stir and enjoy!! I only use pastured butter because that is what is allowed. You could also use coconut oil in place of the butter.

Here is my final product….and it was definitely a hit. I will be making this again :) The picture below is with a little extra almond flour sprinkled on top to make it more like a deconstructed apple pie.

  1. Seems like a tasty recipe – can’t believe how many amazing meals are paleo-compatible. I have moved away from Paleo to try and gain a little mass for a while but will surely sample this dish. Luckily I just got my slow cooker back out the other week.
