Date And Walnut Stuffed Apples
4 crisp organic apples, preferably organic Autumn Glory apples
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
½ tsp cinnamon
Dash each of nutmeg and ginger
¼ tsp pink sea salt
½ cup walnuts, roughly chopped
¼ cup dates, pits removed and roughly chopped
½ cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 F.
First core the apples. Use an apple corer or a sharp pairing knife to carefully cut out the core, leaving the bottom half of the apple in tact. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out seeds and flesh around core and discard.
In a small bowl, combine melted coconut oil, spices, sea salt, walnuts, and dates. Mix well to combine and spoon mixture into each apple, stuffing to the top.
Carefully place each apple into a baking dish and pour boiling water around them. Bake apples in the oven for 45-60 minutes, or until apples are cooked, but not overly mushy.
Remove from oven and serve warm with a dollop of yogurt, a drizzle of peanut butter, and even a handful of cacao nibs if you’re feeling creative! Making this dessert? It’s delicious with a scoop of organic vanilla ice cream too!
