Preheat oven to 325ºF. Prepare four small tart pans by greasing lightly with coconut oil. Set aside.
When ready to eat, prepare the sautéed apples. In a medium pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the apples, maple syrup, cinnamon, pecans, vanilla bean powder, and salt. Sauté for 6-8 minutes or until apples are slightly softened but still crunchy (or until they’re all soft - whatever your preference is).
You can either slice the apples, like I did, or used cubed apples. I recommend cubes in the recipe because it's easier to make and to eat that way (and you get more apple chunks), but if you want them to look like mine, go for the slices!
