Ingredients for Baked Apples
This beautiful autumn dessert recipe can be made with just 6 ingredients!! They are:
- pink lady apples
- coconut sugar
- rolled oats
- oat flour
- butter (or vegan butter)
While this recipe is low gluten, it is not technically gluten free as most oats are contaminated with gluten as a result of how they are processed. This recipe can be made dairy free by replacing the butter with vegan butter or coconut oil. Just as a note, with coconut oil the granola mixture will be more crumby and fall apart as opposed to using butter or vegan butter, which will make nice clumps of crispy granola.
If you struggle to find oat flour, you can actually make your own! All you need to do is add rolled oats to a high powered blender or food processor and blend on high until you have a fine, flour consistency.
