  • 5 large apples; cored and sliced into 1/4 inch pieces and then cut in half again see video for demo
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans halves
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter preferably grass-fed or pastured
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 (be sure the rack is in the middle of the oven) and coat a 88 baking dish with cooking spray or butter and set aside.
  • Place almonds, pecans, coconut, salt, butter, and honey on a food processor that holds a minimum of 4 cups.
  • Pulse the mixture until it starts to come together into a loose ball (see video). Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, cinnamon and lemon and gently toss until all of the apples are lightly coated in the lemon and cinnamon.
  • Transfer apples into the greased baking dish and gently spread them out so they are even in the dish.
  • Drop the nut and coconut topping over the top of the apples, using your fingers to distribute it evenly.
  • Pop in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the top is toasty brown and the apples are tender. Cool and enjoy!
