Shoehorning a fruit into your dessert can only be a good thing – one of your five-a-day in treat form! These delicious baked cinnamon apples are stuffed with a gooey oaty filling that gives the whole thing a sort of crumble flavour, which is perfect for warming you up on a winter night. You could even reheat these baked cinnamon apples the next day and have them as a warming breakfast if you’re feeling like you might need a sweet start to the day. If you’re feeling virtuous serve these with fat-free crème fraiche, but if you want to be good to yourself why not try a big old dollop of thick double cream? If you’re not a huge fan of cinnamon you can always experiment with other spices – nutmeg or a tiny amount of allspice would also be delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium apples
  • 80g rolled oats
  • 55g coconut sugar
  • 1tbsp melted coconut oil
  • ½tsp cinnamon
  • ¼tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup of hot water
  • frozen yoghurt or fat free crème fraiche, to serve

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 175C.

  • Combine the rolled oats, coconut oil, coconut sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla until combined and sticky.

  • Wash and core the apples.

  • Place the cored apples in a deep baking dish. Spoon the filling into the apples until it’s about to overflow.

  • Pour a cup of water into the bottom of the dish, cover with foil, and bake for approx. 1 hour until the apples are soft and the sugar has melted into a syrup. To test, poke a knife into the centre of the apple; it should slide in easily with no resistance.

  • Serve the baked cinnamon apples warm with a scoop of frozen yoghurt or a dollop of fat free crème fraiche.
