Baked apples stuffed with oats, nuts, raisins and spices.
Even though I am truly a summer girl, I do adore Autumn/Winter desserts. I just love baked fruit and these Baked Apples are no exception.
I adore the aromas that fill the house as you cook them. They are a delicious dessert and surprisingly taste very indulgent.
This recipe can easily be adapted – just experiment with different dried fruits, try adding some chopped nuts or some orange peel.
This is a nice simple recipe for getting young children to help in the kitchen. They can help mix the filling and can have fun stuffing the apples

Apples stuffed with a spiced oat and nut mixture. Baked for a delicious dessert.
- 40g (1/4 cup) Raisins
- 47g (1/4 cup) Butter, melted
- 28g (3 tbsp) Almond Flour
- 20g (3 tbsp) Rolled oats
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Ginger
- 1 tsp Honey *SEE NOTE 1
- 4 Apples (I used pink ladies)
Preheat oven to 180c /360F and grease
Add the raisins to a small bowl and soak in boiling water. (This stops the raisins burning and having a bitter taste)
Mix the melted butter, almond flour, oats, cinnamon, ginger and honey together in a bowl.
Core the apples using an apple corer. If you don't have an apple corer you can use a small paring knife.
Drain the raisins and add to the oat mixture, stir until combined.
Fill each apple with the mixture, there should be just the right amount to fill the four apples. Any extra mixture can be added to the top of the apples.
Place apples on a baking tray and bake for approx 30-45 mins. (SEE NOTE 2)
- Honey is optional, it is there for added sweetness. You can choose to omit it or increase the amount, depending on taste. Do not add honey for under 1s.
- Cooking time will vary depending on the type and size of apple used. I found 35 mins perfect for my small pink lady apples.
