This is a perfect Fall treat. Easy to make, delicious and healthy. You can have it for breakfast or dinner. Divine smell will fill the air throughout your home while the apples are baking in the oven.
When I was a child, my parents used to bake whole apples whenever my brother and I had tummy problems. Similar to apple sauce, they were easy to digest and contained pectin to help soothe the stomach.
Here is a version of baked apples with dried fruit, nuts, spices, and drizzled with honey. Very rich, but still healthy!
6 sweet apples
1/2 cup walnut, chopped
1/2 cup dried apricot, chopped (you can use other dried fruit such as cherries, cranberries or raisins)
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2-3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup honey
Preheat the oven to 355F (180C).
Mix chopped ingredients, apricot and walnut, with spices. Core the apples. Cut off the apple tops. Place apples on baking dish. Stuff the holes in the apples with prepared mixture. Add small pieces of butter on the top of stuffing, drizzle apples with honey and bake for about 50 minutes. If stuffing is about to get burned cover the apples with aluminum foil.
