Stuffed Oat & Fig Apples
These are quick and easy baked apples with a stuffing that is super nutritious and is free of any added sugar. You can eat them warm or cool them down, store them in the fridge and eat them within a day.
They are also dairy and egg free, and if you choose to use gluten free oats, they will also be suitable for those with gluten sensitivity.
Preparation time: 15 min for preparation, 30 min for baking
Ingredients for 3 portions
3 large apples
4 tablespoons of oats
3 dried figs
1/3 cup of almond milk
a handful of chopped hazelnuts
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of cloves
How to make them:
Core each apple using a corer or a small sharp knife, making a large well in the centre. Do not discard the cored “apple meat” and keep it to use it as a part of the stuffing.
Transfer the cored apples to a baking tray.
In a separate bowl, mix oats, chopped figs, hazelnuts, cinnamon, cloves and almond milk and let it stand for 5 min.
Add 1/2 part of the “apple meat” that you removed from the apples and blend the mix with a stick blender until smooth.
Then fill up the cored apples with the prepared oat mix and bake them at 175 C for 30 min.
