Baked Apple Slices

I hope I remember the ingredients to the wonderful concoction I once created out of desperation of not being able to fashion an after-dinner desert. I was largely inspired by my friend who serendipitously e-mailed her version of a baked apple treat, on which I improvised. It was an instant hit. I don't have a picture now, but I'll add it next time I serve the treat.

INGREDIENTS:


  • 2 organic apples of Granny Smith kind cored and slices no thinker than 1/2 inch
  • 1/2 cup of organic orange juice (freshly squeezed is the best)
  • 3 oz red wine (I happen to have organic pinot noir on hand)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of organic quick or rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of organic shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup of organic apple juice sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1 table spoon of sweetener of your choice (maple, agave, rice syrups or honey)
COOKING:
  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Layer apple slices in 6x10 inch glass baking pan
  3. Pour orange juice over apple slices
  4. Sprinkle with oats, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cranberries, coconut in that order
  5. Drizzle with wine and sweetener
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot.
Serves 4

Suitable for macrobiotic, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets.
