It’s apple season! I mean, I know apples are available pretty much year-round, but they’re just so much more enjoyable in the fall, don’t you think? Now’s the time of year to pick up new heirloom varieties at the farmer’s market or take the family apple-picking at a local orchard. (Not that I’ve ever done these things, living nowhere near decent apples, but it’s still a nice thought–and something on my bucket list! I love trying different varieties of fruits.) Anyway, regardless of where you get your apples, it’s also the time of year to make cider and applesauce and apple pie and cinnamon apples… filling your home with so many wonderful seasonal aromas. And now, these Maple-Cinnamon Stuffed Apples can join the menu! These are based on an old family-favorite recipe for apples stuffed with brown-sugar oatmeal, adapted for the autoimmune protocol by using raisins sauteed with syrup and cinnamon instead. And might I say, I like this version better! It’s extremely straightforward and bursting with flavor. Pair it with your favorite AIP-friendly ice cream for an irresistibly divine treat.
