- 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
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Wash and core the apples. Scoop out a whole in the apple about 1-1.5 inch diameter wide.
- In a bowl, mix together the oats, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds, pecans, and maple syrup.
- Add the almond milk to the oat mixture and stir well.
- Place the apples in a loaf pan.
- 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!)
- 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)
- Drizzle the apples with maple syrup and your warm dessert (or breakfast like I did the other day) is ready!
