Crockpot Sugar Detox Dessert Stuffed Apples

Ok, before you judge the sh*t out of these pictures and think this dessert looks disgusting and hate on this recipe, breathe. I cooked these guys for almost three hours and they almost esploded. That word is way cooler than exploded. So it was hard enough to get them into a bowl, let alone get a picture that made your taste buds salivate. Green apples don’t really look delicious when cooked down. They look a brown-green color. Similar to baby vomit. Or poo. Take your pick.

Anywho, these dessert apples are pretty amazing, especially being part of the sugar detox. You’re allowed green apples in moderation while on the sugar detox, and if you read my post yesterday about my experience with the detox, you know that green apples began to taste super sweet to me after cutting out all sugar. The best thing about these stuffed apples is that they turn into an applesauce if you leave them in the crockpot long enough. Mine were getting close to applesauce. Which I was diggin’ since it was pretty much like eating a apple streusel thingy. I don’t even know what a streusel is. Maybe I meant to say strudel? That doesn’t sound right either. I don’t even know what I’m talking about.

Just so all of you know, I ate two of my favorite burgers in this world within a week. I think I could die happy. No I’m kidding. I haven’t had dessert yet. I need a legit dessert. Like bacon wrapped dates. Get this, when I get back from Lake Powell, I plan on making a blackberry loaf or waffles or pancakes and topping them with a vanilla curd. And maple syrup. I need that cheat. I need that cheat very badly. Bacon wrapped dates will be a side dish, obviously. Back to the point, I told you about my new favorite burger I had last week…WELL I just had a burger with pork belly on top. And a sweet potato jam to top it off. Yeah, life is good.

Did you know I’m in the water at Lake Powell right now? Happy happy joy joy. Can’t wait to share pictures with you. Now make this dessert and stop gagging at the pictures.


Crockpot Sugar Detox Dessert Stuffed Apples

  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 4 green apples, cored, bottom still in place
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sunbutter, unsweetened (or other nut butter)
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon (the more the better in my world)
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 34 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup water


  1. First you gotta core your apples, which is a pain if you don’t have an apple corer or paring knife…like me. I use a knife and drilled out the top then used a spoon to scoop out any core, leaving behind as much apple as possible and making sure not to remove the bottom. Perfection is not needed here.
  2. Mix together your coconut butter and sunbutter along with cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  3. Place cored apples in your crockpot and pour water in the bottom.
  4. Use a spoon to pour in your coconut and sunbutter mixture into each apple until it’s at the top.
  5. Top each apple off with a bit more cinnamon and your shredded coconut.
  6. Cook for 2-3 hours on low. The longer you cook it, the softer the apple will become so you decide!!


*These would also be wonderful with any sort of nuts mixed in!
*If you are not on the sugar detox, dried fruit would be great in these!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Looks aren’t everything, wait who am I kidding-yes they are. Unless you’re an apple. Then you can look like poo and taste like awesome. Thanks for this easy dose of delicious!

  2. How are you feeling now that you’ve cut out nuts? Have you noticed any changes in your acne or the way you feel? Just wondering cause I suspect that nuts don’t really agree with me either so just wanted to see what your results were 🙂 thanks!

  3. Love baked apples!! I am in desperate need of a kick to the ass… with this 21 Day Sugar Detox… (I bought the information 2 months ago) Tonight I got home late from work and I end up eating a pop tart and I don’t even like them. ugh… where’s the will power to start this thing?

  4. Burgers…mmm. I spent 26 years of my life hating on burgers because I thought they were unhealthy. I just had my first burger, it was wrapped in BACON. I know this isn’t a new concept for many- but in my life, a new beefy age has begun… I’m feeling bold, maybe even crazy enough to make a meatza…recipe??? please?

  5. I can’t wait to make this! thank you for the sugar-detox ideas! they’re really really motivating me to shut up and just do the 21 Day already.

  6. I’m on day 4 of the sugar detox and made the apple last night. This recipe is KILLER. Like whoa! I would eat this anytime. Sugar detox or not. I want to hug you and all of your muscles Julie for your genius concoctions. Ok that’s weird.

  7. These do sound yummy! I’m curious on why you could have green apples vs. red during the detox. Are they lower in sugar?

  8. please please tell me that that burger was your recipe and that you’re going to share with us 🙂

    if not, i need to know what restaurant it was from so that i can plan my trip asap!

  9. I’m curious about the green apple vs red apple too – less sugar in the green, I assume? I’m also curious if you have noticed an improvement in your skin since cutting out the sugar – I know sugar is extremely inflammatory and does horrible things to our immune system (so my Lyme doc kept telling me) so I’m wondering if you’ve noticed a change. I hope so, for the better! I’m a total addict and plan to give the detox a try…when I have enough guts to do it 😉 Good job!!

  10. made these today, and they are absolutely delish! so easy and versatile – snack, dessert….breakfast. yay!

  11. Ok, so I made some for the family. They are freaking a-ma-zing! I had mine in the crock for about 2.5 hours, I drizzled raw honey when served. We inhaled these suckers. Thank you for all you do!!

  12. Made these last night. Very very very good! Loved them! Everyone scrunched their face over the way the apples looked though lol.

  13. I just made these and they were great I was looking for an easy way to add more calories to the detox since I’m worried about consuming too few. I am on level 2 which allows for dairy so I poured a little heavy cream to give it some more moisture… delicious!

  14. I was so excited until I saw shredded coconut in the recipe. I am allergic to apples unless they are cooked for long enough to denature the protein causing the allergy and I am constantly looking for great recipes for cooked apple yum-yums. But coconut is also an allergy of mine — one that is only really reactive with shredded coconut (i can use coconut milk and coconut butter). Shredded coconut is my enemy and is always around with paleo stuff. yuk!

  15. These are AMAZING! My only issue with them is that I can’t stop eating them! We will definitely be making them again soon. Thank you for all the great crock pot recipes – yours are truly excellent!
