Holy smokes: it is winter! Well… it’s still Fall but it feels like winter. I live in Canada and there is some misinformation as to what the weather is like up here. I live on the west coast, and fairly south- about an hour’s drive north of Washington state. Approximately 3 1/2 hours drive east of the Pacific Ocean. We have mountains, lakes, and a thriving wine industry. Summertime temperatures can reach 104 F. Not a dog sled or igloo to be seen. We were also really spoiled with our weather this fall. It stayed sunny and warm 15-20 C (59-68 F) deep into November. I traded my shorts for leggings and jeans, but didn’t have much use for my fall jacket. Well… that has all changed in the last couple of weeks. It’s still beautiful and sunny, but cold! Night time lows reaching 5 F. Great for harvesting ice wine, (kind of a cool process you can learn about here) not so great for a girl who doesn’t have a winter jacket. See it’s really quite pretty. And no snow yet, but probably soon.
A better question may be why does this good Canadian girl not have a winter jacket? Well, last year I donated mine, it was miles too big (thank you paleo) and I haven’t gotten around to finding a new one. Maybe something I have to do soon. I need one because I’m not a fan of the cold and it makes me want to stay home and bake. Stay in my footed onesie PJ’s and read in front of a fire. And eat apple pie. Not that there is really any time where I would turn down an apple pie. This Paleo Baked Apple is a quick, grain free dessert that looks impressive, but is so simple. -And cheap to make!

My mother used to make this once in awhile and I loved it.
They are so simple, sometime you forget how good they are!

Oh I used to make something like this but stuffed with almond butter and topped with a bit of granola before baking. So good! Must try this paleo version. Question tho … should there be raisins in the ingredient list?
Looking forward to that eBook 🙂
Hi! We did use raisins! I’ll make sure they are in the list! Are they paleo? Not to some purists as they are quite high in sugar. However in moderation with a well read ingredient list (no added sugars) raisins are okay in the paleo world. Sort of a yellow light type deal for most dried fruit. Good question!

I love baked apples! They always remind me of my mom. It was one of her favorite desserts!
Awe! I love how simple they are, but having a sentimental reason is even better!! 🙂
