Baked Apples With Walnuts

Healthy Dessert: Baked Apples

I love a sweet treat, but I like them to be healthy, too. Baked apples were always a Winter favorite when I was growing up. They were delicious and made the entire house smell sweet. Now that I am a mom I appreciate how easy they are to make and how healthy they are to boot.

To see this simple recipe just

What you need:

2 apples (I like to use Macintosh)
Chopped walnuts
Dried cranberries

What you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Wash the apples thoroughly. Then remove 3/4 of the core, leaving a little at the bottom.
  2. Place them in a pan and fill the holes up with a mixture of the walnuts and cranberries. Drizzle each with about 1 tbsp of honey.
  3. Cover the pan with foil and place in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Check on your apples occasionally to make sure they're not getting too mushy.
  4. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for five minutes and enjoy.
