Recipe Tips

  • Pricking the outside of the apple will help stop them from exploding and becoming a very unappetizing mess.
  • Try to pack the center of the apples as much as possible, as this will help stop the filling from falling out the bottom.
  • This dish only serves two people but can be easily doubled or tripled to feed more people.
  • Even though honey is paleo-friendly, it is usually best to avoid adding too much, especially if you are looking to lose weight on the paleo diet.
