Baked Grannies

When I first wrote this post I was in the middle of doing The 21-Day Sugar Detox. I’m sure you’ve heard of it? Anyhoo, since then I’ve made these baked apples for the kids many times. And myself since being able to reintroduce small amounts of coconut.

original post as follows:

Since I have been participating in The 21-Day Sugar Detox, green apples taste sweet to me. I find it fascinating how well and easily my taste buds have adapted. So, it’s no surprise that these baked Granny smith apples quickly became one of my favorite “treats” during the 21-Day Sugar Detox.

Luv has become fond of them as well. And with The Mister working overnight DOT lately, he has been home to have “elevenses” with us {late breakfasts}. One morning, he looked around the table, seemingly impressed, and asked if we ate breakfast like this everyday. I just smiled. He’d be able to answer that himself just by looking at my Instagram feed…Ha!

    haha granny smith apples! i had no idea what to expect when i read this title. i figured it could be anything. these look great! very creative. i’d never think to combine coconut butter and apples.i usually baked apples with walnuts, raisins, maple syrup, and cinnamon. sooo good.

      Haha! I was chuckling when I pulled these out of the oven for the first time, the name just came to me πŸ™‚ Walnuts and raisins are a great addition for baked apples – I wish I could eat walnuts, I miss nuts terribly!
