I live in apple country, and even though I’ve lived in the northeast my entire life, I’ve never appreciated apples as much as when I’ve been Paleo. Gala all the way. Lets keep that doctor away.
Upside Down Paleo Apple Cakes
1/2 cup apple sauce
¼ cup almond meal
2 tbsp coconut flour
½ tbsp baking powder
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
2-4 tbsp crushed walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350F and grease muffin tins a bit with coconut oil.
Slice 1 apple into 6 rounds, and pick away any seeds or hard bits in the middle. Cube up the second apple without the skins of the apple.
Mix cubed apples, egg, melted coconut oil, 2 tbsp honey, nutmeg, ½ tbsp cinnamon and crushed walnuts together.
Stir in the almond and coconut flour with the baking powder.
Pour slightly less than ½ tbsp of honey into the bottom of each muffin tin cup, followed by a dash of cinnamon.
Lay one apple round in each cup on top of the honey and cinnamon.
Pour batter evenly overtop each apple round.
