Serves: 4 baked apples
Baked Apples
  • 4 large apples (I recommend Honey Crisp or Pink Lady)
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup apple juice
  • 2½ cups almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla)
  • 1¼ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
Optional Toppings
  • Whipped cream
  • Nuts
  • Additional maple syrup
  • raisins or dried cranberries
  • Granola
  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  1. Prepare the apples: Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Slice off the tops of each apple. Using a paring knife, spoon, or ice cream scoop carefully hollow out each apple, leaving a ¼-inch thick bowl for the oatmeal. Squeeze lemon juice over the white parts of each apple. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Place the apples in a small baking dish. Pour the apple juice in the bottom of the dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes until the apples are tender.
  2. Prepare the oatmeal: In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the almond milk, oats, maple syrup, spices, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly as the oatmeal heats up. Then, turn the heat down to low, stirring occasionally for about 10-15 minutes, until the oatmeal has thickened. Stir in more almond milk at the end if desired. Taste and add in more maple syrup if needed.
  3. Stuff the apples: Fill each apple with an even amount of oatmeal. Add on toppings.
