Happy dessert

Get ready. Cause I'm about to make you happy.

You know when you want a really delicious dessert but you don't want to leave the house and you don't want to put in any effort and you'd prefer to eat guilt free? Well here it is folks: Apple Maple Coconut Cinnamon Oat-y goodness (that's the official name).

I think I know what's going through your mind...  how good could an apple dessert really be? No sign of pie crust, no ice cream in sight, not even a drizzle of caramel or chocolate. I understand, but it's time you trust me. It tastes a lot like apple crisp but its faster to make, mess-free, and most importantly has a fraction of the sugar.  Plus, it's apple season! Apples are particularly delicious these days so you may as well take advantage :) 

Serves: 1  (It could be shared into two small portions, but once you take a bite you probably won't want to share. Plan accordingly). 

Maple Syrup 
Unsweetened shredded coconut 
Large flake oats 

Preheat oven to 350F. 
Cut an apple into medium sized chunks. 
Drizzle with oil and maple syrup. 
Sprinkle with coconut, cinnamon, and oats. 
Pop in the oven for about 20 minutes or until apples are nice and soft. You may want to give it a little stir half way through. 

Wishing you tasty meals and happy days,


  1. I am definitely making this... would it still be good without the coconut flakes?

  2. Absolutely! I've made it many times with just cinnamon and maple syrup.
