Healthy Cinnamon Baked Apple
- 2 organic apples (use your favorite variety)
- 1 ½ Tablespoons melted butter/ghee/coconut oil
- 2 Tablespoons gluten-free oats
- 1 ½ Tablespoons coconut sugar (or preferred granulated sweetener)
- 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
- 1 scoop Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder (optional)
- Optional topping ideas: raisins, walnuts, coconut cream, yogurt, granola
- Preheat oven to 350F. Wash and cut apples lengthwise. Scoop out center. Place apple halves cut side down on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, make slits across apple (but don’t cut all the way through, keeping it intact).
- Carefully move apple halves onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, keeping them cut side down. Brush tops of apples with melted coconut oil/butter/ghee. Sprinkle with a pinch of coconut sugar (or preferred granulated sweetener such as Lakanto).
- Bake for about 20 minutes to soften. While apples are baking, in a small mixing bowl stir together remaining butter, coconut sugar, oats, cinnamon, and collagens powder.
- Remove pan from the oven and let apples cool enough to touch. Using fingers or a spoon, stuff a little bit of oatmeal mixture between apple slits and sprinkle more on top.
- Place pan back in the oven and bake 10 more minutes or until desired doneness is reached.
- Serve warm or cold, topped with optional toppings, if desired, and enjoy
- Apples can be store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Apples cleanse the colon of bacteria, viruses, yeast, and mold. They also support the liver, digestive tract function, and brain health.
Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and helps lower blood sugar levels and inflammation.
Coconut oil provides a boost of healthy fat that can energize and satiate. It is a strong antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial food.
Coconut sugar is a natural sugar made from coconut palm sap. It’s the color and consistency of raw sugar but is considered somewhat healthier than table sugar as it has a lower glycemic index and contains some minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
Oats are technically gluten-free because they aren’t a type of wheat, barley, or rye grain. However, if you have celiac or a significant gluten sensitivity, look for oats that are certified gluten-free to ensure no cross-contamination.
Collagen helps maintain the structure and integrity of skin, hair, nails, muscle tissue, bones, tendons, and more. Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens includes targeted nutrients such as zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 which enhance the bioavailability and potency of collagen.
