BAKED BLUEBERRY-STUFFED APPLES

blueberry-baked-stuffed-apples-mainBaked apples with cinnamon are traditionally a Fall dessert, but it’s easy to bring them into the summer season with a blueberry filling. The only sweetener here is the apple juice – there’s no honey or maple syrup or other added sugar. Almond meal and coconut flakes sprinkled over the top add a crunchy topping, but you could also leave one or both out if you have trouble digesting nuts or coconut.
