Instant Pot Baked Apples (30-Minutes)


This Instant Pot Baked Apples recipe is a delicious healthy dessert that is vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo. You only need five ingredients and 30 minutes.


  • 4 apples
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar*
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 tablespoons chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts
  • 1 cup water


  1. Wash and core the apples, using a spoon or melon baller to make sure you remove all of the apple seeds. Be careful not to poke a hole in the bottom of the apples.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and chopped nuts. Stir to combine.
  3. Then, use a spoon to divide the mixture between the apples, carefully filling the hole of each apple.
  4. Place the trivet into the bottom of a 6-quart Instant Pot. Add the water into the bottom of the pot.
  5. Place the apples onto the trivet and lock on the lid.
  6. Set the time to 5 minutes at high pressure.
  7. When the cooking time is complete, let the pressure come down naturally for about 10 minutes, and then use the quick-release to unlock the lid.
  8. Use tongs to remove the apples to a serving platter or bowl. You can use a serving spoon to pour some of the liquid from the bottom of the pot onto the apples.
  9. Serve the apples warm or at room temperature.


  1. *You can use brown sugar or date sugar, if you prefer.
