Baked apples with caramel sauce recipe

These baked apples taste just like apple pie filling but without the crust. The baking of the apples brings out their natural sweetness. We made this version gluten free by simple using almond flour which is finely ground balanced almonds and gluten-free oats. Feel free to use what you have on hand to create your own delicious version of this baked treat.
