Shareable Snackable Gluten Free Refined Sugar Free Doggo Approved Baked Apples

I couldn’t head into October with only a pumpkin recipe and nary an apple recipe in sight! What would the dogs think? What would the apples think?

Apples are abundant in autumn and I love sharing them with Opie as a healthy snack, filled with vitamin C, vitamin A and lots of fibre! I typically feed them to him as steamed slices or in a smoothie, but this year I decided to make something a little cozier that would satisfy both of our fall themed cravings. And that it did. Enjoy this treat for your dog, body and soul. 

You'll need:

  • 4 Gala, Honeycrisp or Spy apples (always aim for organic if possible)
  • 1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil melted
  • 2 tbsps chopped nuts (I used almonds but you can choose to use walnuts (English), pecans, cashews, peanuts or a mix)
  • ⅓ cup of gluten free oats
  • ¼ tsp alcohol free vanilla
  • 1 tbsp raw local honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch of good quality sea salt


    1. Set your oven to 400
    2. Before coring apples, remove the stem and slice off the top to make flat. Share the tops with your doggo. Then flip over apples, take a sharp pairing knife and cut out the centre of the apple- ensure all seeds have been discarded
    3. Mix together the filling: oats, sea salt, spices, nuts, oil or ghee and choice of unrefined sweetener
    4. Move the apples to a baking dish and stuff them with the mixture.
    5. Fill the baking dish with 1/2 cup of hot water
    6. Cover apples with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes. Baste the apples with the water every 5-10 minutes. Uncover the apples for the last 5 minutes.
    7. The apples should be tender to pierce with a fork when finished.
    8. Let cool until warm- optional to serve with drizzled almond butter and unsweetened coconut flakes, bee pollen or a daily dosage of CBD.
    9. For the dogs, be sure the apple is cooled sufficiently, and mash it up with a fork before serving.
    10. Lastly, enjoy sharing nutritious local foods with your booboos. Happy Fall y'all.
