  • Casserole Dish
  • Large Mixing Bowl


  • 8 Cups Apple Slices I used Honeycrisp, but any baking apple will work for this recipe.
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Tapioca Flour
  • 1 + ½ Teaspoons Cinnamon I use Ceylon Cinnamon.
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt


  • Start by rinsing all the apples. Cut them into thin slices, and measure out 8 cups.
  • Add the apples into a large mixing bowl along with the water, cinnamon, tapioca flour, and salt. Stir until they're evenly coated.
  • Next, pour the apple slices into a medium sized casserole dish. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven to stir, and place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes. (They should still be firm.)
  • Remove from the oven, and serve hot with your favorite dairy-free ice cream or coconut whipped cream!


Helpful Baking Tips

  • Add ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg for a little extra kick of flavor!
  • Do not over bake the apples or they will become mushy.
  • Serve with your favorite dairy-free ice cream or coconut whipped cream! I also like sprinkling on toasted pecans or walnuts.
  • Make sure you stir the apples after about 20-25 minutes of baking.

Frequently Asked Questions

What apples work best for baking?
Firm, crispy apples work best. I used Honeycrisp, but you could also try Granny Smith, McIntosh, Gala, or Fuji.
How can I make this recipe sweeter?
I don't add sugar to this recipe because in my opinion apples have plenty of natural sweetness, but if you like them a little sweeter you can stir in ¼ cup of coconut sugar!
