Oven-baked fruitsWednesday 20 th December 2017
In the winter, warm food is more appetising. It is harder to bring oneself to eat fruit, which tends to be cold, and less appetising at this time of year. Although the ideal situation is to eat fruit in its natural form (baked fruit loses some nutrients), it is possible to bake different fruits in the oven to continue benefitting from fruits while staying warm on a cold winter day.
Any fruit. For example, I used 2 golden apples, 2 pears, 1 persimmon, 1 banana and a few frozen cherries. You can also add mango, pineapple, peach, apricots, or whatever suits your desires.
Orange juice (use 2 oranges)
Cinnamon powder and a few cinnamon branches to decorate
A little bit of coconut butter or any other oil or butter that you tolerate (about 2 spoonfuls)
Cut the apples, pears and persimmon into four pieces each, and the banana into slices. Place them on a baking tray and decorate with a few cherries and cinnamon branches on top.
Melt the coconut butter by heating it slightly and mix it with the orange juice and the cinnamon
Pour this liquid mix on the fruits
Cook in the oven at 180ºC for about 1 hour or until the apple is tender when you poke it with a fork
Serve it while it is warm.
