Put the apple stuffed into a single serve small baking dish. Pour remaining ¼ cup coconut milk beverage in the baking dish to help steam and flavor the apple. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on the size of apple. When done take out and cut in half.

  1. This looks fabulous. Apple and Cinnamon is well known to blend well together. All you need now is some plain Ceylon Cinnamon tea to wash away the guilt of sugar. 🙂
