Back to the basics with my blog, our food, life in general, and Enjoying this Journey...

I remember biting into a Granny smith apple and having that telling pain in my jaw as saliva rushed in.

Lovely, no?

Since I have been participating in the 21-Day Sugar Detox, green apples taste sweetish 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!

I’ve also made these topped with a cinnamon whipped coconut cream. No sweet stuff added, just the thick chilled cream {that separates from coconut milk} and cinnamon, whipped together. NOM.

* This recipe uses coconut butter; you can either make your own or buy organic coconut butter.

      Haha! I was chuckling when I pulled these out of the oven for the first time, the name just came to me :) Walnuts and raisins are a great addition for baked apples - I wish I could eat walnuts, I miss nuts terribly! Erin recently posted...Smitten No. 5My Profile Reply
