  • 4 granny smith apples
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 batch coconut whipped cream
  • Optional toppings: caramel sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Slice the top of each apple off and scoop out the core.
  • Spoon 1 tbsp of brown sugar in each apple and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Top with coconut whipped cream and optional caramel sauce.

How to make coconut cream:

  • Place a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge.
  • Scoop the hard fat into a bowl (leave the water in the can).
  • Whip with a hand blender. You may add powdered sugar, brown sugar, or stevia to sweeten if desired.
  • The coconut cream can be whipped or if you leave it soft and whisk in powdered sugar, it will become a glaze (like in the images in the post).
