Apple Almond Avalanche

Do you crave dessert that you can feel awesome about? Indulge in my makeshift Apple Pie for One and feel oh-so-satisfied mentally, physically, emotionally, and of course in your tummy!

Serves 1
  • 1 washed apple, your favorite variety. I tend to always go for Pink Lady, Fuji, and Gala.
  • 1-1/2 tablespoon almond butter. I use no-salt organic and raw almond butter -- tastes fabulous. (Trader Joe's and Whole Foods both carry different versions of this; try to opt for the ones whose only ingredient is almonds.)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Core your apple, and slice off the top rim (about 1 centimeter.)
  • Place in a baking dish, and sprinkle apple insides with cinnamon.
  • Bake in oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, and using a spoon, allow almond butter to fall through the cored part of the apple. Spread any remaining almond butter on the top surface.
  • Place rim back on the base, and slice your makeshift apple pie any which way you prefer. You can get ooey gooey and eat with your fingers. Personally I like using a fork and knife. As always, be creative... everything tastes better that way :)
