Baked Apples

Ingredients

Baked Apples

  • 6 cooking apples (medium to large)
  • 1 ½ cup apple cider
  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup brown sugar (or natural sugar)
  • ½ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 Tbsp flour (any kind will be great)
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • cup honey

For Serving

  • Greek yogurt, creamy yogurt, or vanilla ice cream

Instructions

Prep the Apples

  • Preheat oven to 350° F
  • Remove a ½" thick slice from the top of each apple. Remove the core, stopping about ½" from the bottom of the apple. (A melon baller makes this job a lot easier)
  • Arrange the apples in baking dish. (You may need to remove a thin slice from the bottom of each apple if they're having trouble standing up straight)
  • Brush each apple with a tablespoon or so of apple cider

Filling

  • In a medium-sized bowl combine oats, sugar, almonds, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the melted butter
  • Fill the centers of the apples with oat mix, mounding slightly. Pour the remaining apple cider around the base of the apples

Bake and Serve

  • Cover and bake for 50 minutes (60 minutes if your apples are big).
  • Uncover and continue to bake the apples for 10-20 minutes more, depending on their size. Allow to cool slightly
  • Drizzle the apples with honey before serving. Serve with yogurt or ice cream
