I saw this today of paleOMG website and knew I had to make this one. I have been in a paleo making funk lately and havent posted much or really made anything new lately. I have just been making the basics for dinner- but that was half the fun of starting to eat paleo was finding new things to make! So I am back at it starting NOW. I wanted to find some yummy desserts to make over the holiday’s because sweets are my WEAKNESS! I will probably double this recipe since I have a ginormous family…
- 4 large apples- I forget what kind I bought but they were so sweet and yummy.
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- some strips of gluten free lasagna (cooked and cut)
Take the apples and scoop out the middle. I took a melon ball scooper and pretty much scraped the entire inside of the apples. Put all the scrapings into a bowl and when your are done with all your apples, chop them up into smaller pieces.
In the meantime, take about 3-4 pieces of gluten free lasagna and cook so they are done. You want these soft, so more then al dente. When they are done cut them into like 1/2 inch pieces that are long enough to cover the apples.
Take the apple filling and add the maple syrup, coconut flour, and cinnamon. Blend together until well mixed. Take the mixture and fill your apples up to the rim.
Take the pieces of the lasagna and lay them over the apples, 3 in each direction. Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and I also sprinkled with some coconut sugar. What’s that? Its amazing is what it is. Go get some… Whole foods. The best thing to put in coffee. Ever.
Put the apples in a glass baking dish and pour a little water on the bottom, enough to cover the bottom but not too much.
Bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes.
NOTE: The lasagna ‘crust’ is pretty crunchy when this is cooked. You could always use Filo dough if you wanted, but then thats not quite paleo… so just dont mind the crunchiness and your all good.
