  • Yield: 4 servings


This is the perfect autumn dessert!


  • 4 large Braeburn apples (or your favorite type)
  • 5 Tbsp coconut oil (plus a little more for the baking pan)
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 4 Tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 containers (or more!) of Icelandic Provisions Vanilla Skyr


Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Peel and core the apples and cut in half.  Place the apples, cut side down on a cutting board and make slices in 1/8? intervals, making sure not to cut all the way through to the bottom of the apple.  Lightly oil a baking pan with coconut oil.  Arrange the apples, core side down on a baking dish.

In a small saucepan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat.  Stir in the coconut sugar and let it dissolve slightly. Then add oats, pecans salt and spices.  Spoon the mixture over the apples, dividing it evenly across all of the pieces.

Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes, remove the foil and bake, uncovered, for an additional 10-15 minutes, until apples are tender.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Serve topped with Icelandic Provisions Vanilla Skyr.


If you don’t have time to do all of the cutting for a Hasselback apple.  You can simplify the process by just turning the apples, cut side up. Sprinkle the topping and cook as directed above.

If you prefer, you can use 4 Tbsp of butter instead of coconut oil. You can also substitute regular cane sugar for the coconut sugar if you prefer.
