Easy Baked Apples

Co-written with Catherine Ezor & Nadia Elmagrabi

Fall is one of our favorite seasons. We love the changing leaves, the brisk air, scarves, pumpkin, and especially apples. There’s nothing like visiting an orchard, picking your own apples, and bringing them back to your kitchen to concoct homemade applesauce, pies, and more.

Right now, we’re finishing up the recipe guide for our upcoming clean eating program and last minute, we decided to include one of our FAVORITE apple recipes. Let us know what you think!

EASY BAKED APPLES

Makes 4 servings

4 large apples
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½-inch ginger, grated (OR ½ teaspoon powdered ginger)
¼ cup raisins (OR any other dried fruit)
¼ cup of pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup water


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the stem from your apples by taking a sharp paring knife and cutting around the stem in a circle. Your hole should be about ½-inch wide. Cut further down to remove the core and seeds. You should now have enough space to stuff the apple.

Next, sprinkle the inside of your apples with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger (divide the spice among the 4 apples). Add in raisins and pumpkin seeds. Top with coconut oil. Place all 4 apples in a shallow baking pan with a cup of water. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until tender.
