Preheat oven to 400
Brush an Iron skillet with refined coconut oil.
Make flax egg by mixing ground flaxseed and water. Set aside. (Could use regular egg.)
Thinly slice apple (I left skin on.)
In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and spices.
In a separate bowl mix melted coconut oil, apple cider, coconut milk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and nuts.
With a wooden spoon, mix dry ingredients into the wet.
Pour into oiled skillet.
Arrange apples on top. (I have also stirred apples into batter and that works great too.)
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
