Healthy Christmas Treat Recipe

Healthy Christmas Treat Recipe.

 

When it comes to snacks and treats, temptation is all around us at Christmas.

Christmas desserts are all about two things: fruit and spices – and here is a healthy version containing them both.

Spiced Fruit Bake is a delicious and healthy breakfast bake. This gluten free spiced hot fruit bake makes a great topping for pancakes, oatmeal, waffles, or to simply eat it on its own.

This nutritious bake is also vegan friendly. It is very simple to make and the key is to have fresh, seasonal fruit such as pears, apples, cranberries (please avoid canned fruit!)

 

Spiced Fruit Bake Recipe.

 

Ingredients:

2 cups sliced apples

2 cups green pear slices

1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries

1 cup pineapple chunks (save the juice)

lemon juice

1/3 cup coconut sugar

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 melted butter or 4 tbsp vegan butter

2 tbsp melted coconut oil (add 1 tbsp butter instead if you don’t have coconut oil)

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

 

Preheat oven to 150 C.

In a large bowl, toss your fruit and add in 1-2 tsp lemon juice.  Set aside.

In another glass bowl, combine your melted butter, sugar, spices, and coconut oil.

Add in honey and a little bit of your leftover pineapple juice as well.

Add this sugar/butter mixture to your fruit and coat evenly.

Pour fruit evenly in a 9×12 baking dish.

Pour the leftover sugar/butter/oil mixture on top.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Add walnuts and bake for another 30 minutes.

Mix fruit again and serve.

 

Note:

The coconut oil in this recipe will harden a little if you put this in the fridge for later, so be sure to reheat until it’s all melted again before serving.

 

The great thing about this type of fruit bake is that it can be used for so much more than just Christmas. It’s fantastic with yogurt for a post workout meal because it has the perfect balance of natural carbohydrates, glucose, and protein from the yogurt!

 

I hope you will enjoy this healthy Christmas treat recipe.
