AIP Baked Apples Recipe

AIP Baked Apples

Baked Apples

Fall is apple season across the US. I just love strolling the produce section and looking at all of the available varieties and vibrant colors that are so abundant this time of year. I also love that I can indulge on one of my favorites: baked apples! Today I am sharing my AIP baked apples recipe that appears on my new AIP (auto immune protocol) meal plans.

Traditionally, baked apples are made with a dried fruit, nut and honey combination. My AIP baked apple recipe eliminates the nuts and honey (which are not AIP compliant), and sticks to an all-fruit based filling. I tested the recipe out on Brook and he couldn't tell the difference!

Quick tip: try playing with different dried fruits. For example, dried cranberries or cherries would be a great sub for the raisins. Just make sure to keep the dates…they act as the glue for the filling.

  1. I LOVED this recipe, except I went ahead and diced the apples too so it was ready to spoon out and eat as soon as it came out of the oven (instead of having to cut up the halved apple). Super good! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

      I cook Gluten Free meals for my elderly Mother. I cook ahead meals for her to heat and eat. Your idea for dicing the apples is perfect for her! Thank you for sharing.
      I am new to the Prep Dish party, and This makes a perfect dessert/snack for her.
