Balsamic Chocolate Cinnamon Apples (Paleo & Sugar-Free)

Main ingredients-

  • 4-5 medium to large apples
  • 4 tsp ghee (or butter)
  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tsp cocoa powder
  • 4 tsp syrupy balsamic vinegar (we used espresso balsamic from a local shop)

Optional ingredients-

  • 1 tsp almond or vanilla extract
  • 12oz Coconut milk (or heavy cream)
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

To make the apples-

  1. Peel and slice the apples as you would for an apple pie.
  2. Mix the cinnamon and cocoa powder with a pinch a salt in a small bowl.
  3. Melt the ghee in a pan over medium heat.
  4. Add the apples to the pan and cook until softened. They should start to juice a little bit and make a nice syrup in the pan.

  7. Spoon into bowls. Optionally top with whipped cream and coconut flakes (below).


  1. Pour the coconut milk or heavy cream into a bowl with the almond extract. Whip until light and fluffy.
  2. Toast the coconut flakes in a pan over medium heat. Once lightly browned (watch closely- they will burn pretty fast) remove from the pan and toss with salt and cinnamon. (from The Clothes Make the Girl)
