Grain Free Apple Dumplings
Serves: Makes 3 apple dumplings
For the Apple Dumplings:
Filling per apple:
  • 1 teaspoon pure raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon butter or ghee
  • two pinches of cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • optional: I prefer mine plain, but many people like to add a pinch of nuts or raisins
For the Sauce:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Please follow all dough instructions extra carefully!
For the dough:
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the coconut oil, milk, fresh lemon juice, vanilla and salt to a boil over medium high heat.
  2. When it has a nice boil going on, remove from heat (IMPORTANT) and then add in the honey and arrowroot powder.
  3. Stir for a minute until you have a gloopy mess and melted coconut oil at the bottom. At this point, you will probably be yelling at me that I screwed up the recipe, but I promise you, it's supposed to look like a big mess.
  4. Let cool for a few minutes.
  5. Once cool, add in the egg. Stir.
  6. Add in the coconut flour. Stir until well combined.
  7. Take the dough out of the pot and knead for a minute.
  8. Divide dough into 3 separate balls.
  9. Roll or press each dough ball into a 6 inch circle. Each circle should be about ¼ inch thick. Putting the dough on a silpat or parchment paper works really well, but the dough is very easy to work with and doesn't stick so any surface will work!
  10. Place your cored and peeled apple in the middle of each dough circle.
  11. Place 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon butter and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg in each hollowed out core (you can add any nuts or raisins inside the hollowed core, if you wish)
  12. Bring the dough up to the center of the apple until the apple is completely wrapped in the dough.
  13. Put each apple in a lightly greased (with butter or coconut oil) baking dish.
  14. Bake for 30 minutes or until dough is lightly browned on top.
  15. Pour sauce all over the apples.
  16. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. If the tops start to get too brown, lightly cover. Enjoy!
For the Sauce,
  1. Bring the butter, milk, cinnamon, salt and vanilla to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in honey and arrowroot until well mixed.
