Baked Apples: Whole30 Approved

Cooking Class:

Last night my dear friend Dionne came over to a.) chat b.) consol me after getting a root canal and not being able to feel half of my face for 5 hours and c.) to make smoothies and BAKED APPLES!!!
It was so fun to be baking with a friend in my kitchen. We even put on my aprons and felt even more domestically savvy. The apples were quite simple and here's what we did...

4-5 Organic red apples
2 TBSP Organic Ghee: infused with cardemom and cinnamon by Pure Indian Foods
1/2 cup Golden Raisins

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. You'll need a tiny little baking sheet handy. Cut up the apples into chunks. Dionne decided on "like, hash brown sized apple chunks" and I think that is a great size:)
Then put them in a bowl and melt the ghee over the apples. Then add a dash of nutmeg, a pinch of cardemom and a happy helping of cinnamon. Now toss in your raisins and mix all the ingredients together.

Then bake in the oven until golden brown (for Dionne) or slightly blackened (for Emily).

Then you can put them in a cute bowl to serve!

SUPER yummy and the whole house smelled like autumn!
And of course why not  add an organic banana cacao smoothie to the evening? More on smoothies later!
Hope you enjoy baked apples while we're having this little cold spell.
And if you're also doing the Whole30...keep it up! The best is yet to come!

Homework: Bake some know how!
Class Dimissed!
