Baked Blueberry-Stuffed Apples Recipe

Baked apples with cinnamon are traditionally a Fall dessert, but it’s easy to bring them into the summer season with a blueberry filling. The only sweetener here is the apple juice – there’s no honey or maple syrup or other added sugar.

Baked Blueberry-Stuffed Apples

Almond meal and coconut flakes sprinkled over the top add a crunchy topping, but you could also leave one or both out if you have trouble digesting nuts or coconut.

If you’re serving these hot for dessert, one easy way to make the timing work would be to just put them in the oven as you serve dinner. Then they can cook while everyone is eating, and they’ll be done at the end of the meal.

For a real summer treat, these apples would be great with some dairy-free Paleo ice cream (here’s a version with coconut milk, and here’s a version with bananas). Or, if you tolerate dairy, just a drizzle of heavy whipping cream would be a delicious and visually striking way to top everything off.
