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.

My mum would make these whenever she was doing a roast. She put a whole date, cinamon, a clove and a tiny bit of brown sugar in the middle. Best thing in the world with some (low fat) vanilla icecream...and yes, the skin is the BEST bit. I always ate everyone elses!

when I was a kid I always used to make baked apples with my mom, my brother loved them (and he is a very picky eater). unfortunately I lost the recipe but I remember they had a 'sauce' of honey with them and raisins. these look delicious too.

I can't eat uncooked apples, but I do love to bake (or even microwave!) them with some cinnamon for a quick dessert or sweet snack. Also taste great with ice cream if you're not worried about the calories.

That's EASY!!! =D But, I'm not that into fruit with stuff if you know what I mean. I like fruit on it's own, only. But this looks doable. =)

Baked apples are one of my favorite desserts! Exact I substitute maple syrup for honey because I'm not such a honey fan. I also vary the dried fruit that I stuff them with. Apricots are especially nice. Yummy!

This reminds me of girlscouts, only we would cook them on a fire and put hot cinnamon candies in the middle lol. I also like to bake apples sliced up for dessert...just put the apples, sliced up in a dish, and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. no butter, no water...believe it or not...totally delish!
