Baked apple recipe for clean eating
It’s always amazing to me how such a simple thing can taste so good. If you love apple pie, you’re going to be enamored with this baked apples recipe.
Apple pies are great… but they do take some prep time. And if you’re avoiding grains, regular piecrust isn’t an option. This easy baked apples recipe is the answer to both dilemmas, and it’s one of my favorite GAPS diet dessert recipes.
For toppings, there are a couple of options. Homemade raw milk sour cream, which I show how to make here, is absolutely delicious. Using raw milk sour cream keeps this dessert GAPS legal, too.
If you don’t need to stay strictly on GAPS, homemade raw milk whipped cream is also so very yummy!
