Baked Stuffed Apples

Oof. Just, I mean….c’mon! Is there anything better than the smell of cinnamon and apples baking in the oven? Ok maybe it’s better when it’s cool and fall-like outside, but I’m in Texas so in September we’re still living vicariously through our not-Texas friends.

But even without the cooler temps, these Baked Stuffed Apples are where it’s at, y’all. The filling is gooey and sweet, but still dairy and refined sugar free. And let’s talk about that crumble for a second…

You’ll see this with a few of my fall dessert recipes, and there’s a reason for that — it’s AMAZING. If I do say so myself :)

It’s also grain and gluten free, and made with tiger nut flour as the base so you get a nice little prebiotic kick with it! Tiger nut flour has a few other things going for it too:

  • It has a natural sweetness

  • It’s light and fluffy

  • It’s easy to work with

  • It plays nice with other flours

It’s absolutely one of my favorite baking go-to’s, and I can’t wait to whip up some more fall desserts with it!

How to cook Baked Stuffed Apples

For the Apples
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Use a paring knife to core the apples, making sure to remove the seeds.
  3. Melt the honey and coconut oil together, then stir in the seasonings to create a “sauce”.
  4. Add the cranberries and raisins and stir.
  5. Stuff each apples with the cranberry mixture. Drizzle a bit of the sauce over the top, and use your finger to coat the tops of the apple with the sauce.
  6. Top each apple with the crumble mixture. The crumble should stick to the apple tops due to the sauce.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
For the Crumble
  1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Melt shortening and honey together.
  3. Combine with dry ingredients and stir with a fork. It will begin to “crumble” in the bowl.
  4. Crumble it on top of the apples.
