Recipe of the Week: Stuffed Baked Apples

Instead of having a regular old apple pie from the store, try this healthier alternative!

These little desserts are the best parts of an apple pie, without all that dry pie crust. You are literally eating a large serving of apple pie filling- could it get any better???

Here's the answer: It can! A serving of this recipe (one apple) is almost half the sugar of an average slice of apple pie and doesn't include preservatives found in most pre-packaged apple pies.

Servings: 8

 

What you'll need...

  • 8 medium to large apples
  • 1 cup (81 g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (117 g) chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup (76 g) dried unsweetened cranberries or raisins
  • 2 tsp (5 g) ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp finely ground sea salt
  • 2 tbsp (29 g) chilled vegan butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup (240 ml) + 3 tbsp (45 ml) water, divided

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C) degrees
  • Wash and carefully core the apples with a paring knife. Scrape the bottom of the core out with a spoon, making sure that you don’t put a hole in the bottom of the apple.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, walnuts, cranberries or raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, vegan butter, and 3 tbsp (45 ml) of water. Use your hands to mix it together, pressing the butter into the oats until it becomes sticky.
  • Put the apples in a deep baking dish and pour one cup of water in the pan. Liberally spoon the filling into the apples to the top and cover the pan with foil.
  • Bake for approximately one hour, or until fork tender. Serve warm and top with vanilla ice-cream if desired.
