Yield: 1 serving

It is important to make sure you get enough soluble AND insoluble fibre, and apples are the perfect food for this! The skin provides the insoluble fibre, and the flesh inside provides the soluble fibre. Add some old-fashioned rolled oats (also full of soluble fibre), and you have a dessert PACKED with detox superfoods.

Ingredients

  • 1 large firm, crisp-sweet apple, such as Pink Lady or Gala
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon buckwheat flour, almond flour, coconut flour, or rice flour
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a small baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the apple in half. Using a spoon or melon scoop, scoop out the core.
  3. Turn the apple flat-side down on a cutting board. Starting at the outermost edges, cut ¼-inch slices most (but not all) of the way through each apple. Place apple halves, flat side down, on the prepared pan.
  4. Drizzle 1½ teaspoons of the melted oil over the apples and then put in the oven for 15 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, in a small bowl, mix together the remaining 1½ teaspoons of the melted oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, oats, flour, and salt.
  6. Take the apples out of the oven.
  7. Using a small spoon, distribute the oat mixture between the slices of the apple.
  8. Put the apples back in the oven until the oat mixture is brown and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
