TIME: Prep 15 min, Bake 1 hr

YIELD: serves 4


3 lbs organic local apples (approx 8-10)

1/2 cup fresh cranberries (do not use frozen berries as this will make the dish too watery)

1/3 cup grass fed butter melted

1 tbsp coconut oil melted

juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp raw local honey

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground vanilla bean


1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. PEEL and cube all apples (peeling is important as it will give it the pudding texture.)

3. Place apples in a bowl, pour in lemon juice and mix.

4. Add cinnamon and vanilla and mix. Add cranberries to apples.

5. Melt butter and coconut oil. Transfer apples to a glass pyrex pan and then pour the melted butter and coconut oil over them. Mix a bit.

6. Pour honey over top of apples.

7. Place in the oven. Bake for 15 min, then mix apples so the sauces from the bottom fully coat the top layer of apples. Continue to bake for another 45 min.

8. Remove and serve.
