Baked Stuffed Apples

These Baked Stuffed Apples are scrumptious and healthy!

This is one of those recipes I suggest you keep in mind on those occasions where you’re pressed for time, but still want to make a homemade dessert for guests. Great even when you’re not entertaining, these BAKED STUFFED APPLES hit the spot.

Here’s why the recipe always works:

A sink full of apples

APPLES

This recipe is all about the apples, so I suggest using a crisp, juicy variety like Cortland, Honey Crisp, Gala or McIntosh. Head HERE to learn more!

Try using apples of the same size so they bake at the same rate. Speaking from experience, I also like them the next day – they make great take-to-work dessert leftovers.

FILLING

Hollowing out the core and much of the flesh from within creates the perfect cavity for the filling. Combining the apple flesh with pecans, raisins, coconut, sugar and spices is such a perfect taste sensation. One important tip – try not to pierce through the bottom of the apple or all the flavour will drain away.

Coconut oil used to create a vegan filling

COCONUT OIL

I used coconut oil in this recipe just to keep the recipe (à la mode aside) vegan. I actually like the flavour it gives the dessert overall, and it also enhances the flavour of the coconut.

COOK TIME

I’m calling for a 45-minute cook time, but feel free to adjust this to your liking. A longer cook time will yield softer apples.

ICE CREAM

It’s nice to serve these baked apples with ice cream, especially when guests are at the table. This HOMEMADE VANILLA ice cream is the expected compliment, but try looking for new enhancements like ginger, salted caramel and marshmallow ice cream. Delicious!

Wholesome and so easy to prepare, BAKED STUFFED APPLES are a classic dessert sure to please.
