Oat Stuffed Apples

Ingredients:

  • 2 large apples
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 4 dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1.5 Tbsp pure maple syrup (I used pure Vermont maple syrup)
  • 1.5 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Wash and core the apples. Scoop out a whole in the apple about 1-1.5 inch diameter wide.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the oats, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds, pecans, and maple syrup.
  4. Add the almond milk to the oat mixture and stir well.
  5. Place the apples in a loaf pan.
  6. Stuff the apples with the oat mixture. The leftover mixture can go at the bottom of the loaf pan (the oats will absorb the liquid and become extra oatmeal!)
  7. Bake the stuffed apples for 45 minutes (or until you can easily cut through the apples and there is no more liquid at the bottom of the loaf pan)
  8. Drizzle the apples with maple syrup and your warm dessert (or breakfast like I did the other day) is ready!
