These paleo baked cinnamon baked apples are a super simple seasonal treat that could not be easier to make! Delicious on their own or served over yogurt, with your morning oats, or with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream for dessert! Paleo & vegan!


  • 45 crisp medium sized apples (about 1 1/2 pounds worth), peeled and sliced into 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • a big pinch of ground ginger (optional)
  • a big pinch of ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Toss peeled apple slices with maple syrup, melted coconut oil, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and sea salt until well coated.
  3. Spread in a thin layer on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Take out, stir, spread evenly, and return to the oven.
  6. Bake for another 7 minutes, and stir again. 
  7. Return to the oven for another 7-9 minutes, until apples are tender and the sauce is thick and caramelized.
  8. Let cool slightly and enjoy as desired!
  9. They will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Re-heat slightly before serving.


  • If you don’t like the taste of nutmeg or ginger, you can easily leave those spices out of the recipe.
  • These baked apples should be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator. The coconut oil will solidify once cold, but after warming it will incorporate into the sauce again.
  • To re-heat the apples gently warm them on the stove top in a sauce pan, or in the microwave.
  • They will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
