Oat Topped Baked Apples

Do you know someone who is diabetic?  Are you trying to find healthier alternatives for desserts this season?  This recipe can help.  Baked apples are simple way to have a dessert that is full of nutrients and still satisfies your desire for a sweet ending to your meal.  The oats and nuts just bring the nutrition level up a notch, while adding another flavorful element to the dessert.  Be sure to pin it to use later on this season!

Oat Topped Baked Apples

2 large honeycrisp apples
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 tbsp. almond flour (ground almonds)
1 tbsp. coconut sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
3 tbsp. melted coconut oil (you can use butter if you wish)

Scrub the apples.  Slice in half and core.  Slice a small amount off the skin side of the apple so that it will sit level core side up and not wobble around.  Brush the cored side of the apple with the lemon juice.  Place the apples cored side up in a shallow baking dish.  Sprinkle lightly with salt.

In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients.  Work the coconut oil through the dry ingredients.  You don't want anything dry.  Top each apple with 1/4 of the oats.  Press the oats into the cored center of the apples and cover the top of each apple.  Pour water into the bottom of the baking pan 1/8" deep.  Cover the pan with foil.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Remove the foil and continue baking until apples are tender.  Each hot or room temp.

Do you want to add a creamy element to your dessert?  Try Frozen Greek Yogurt or Honey Vanilla Custard Sauce to top you baked apples.

Why use honeycrisp?  They have been proven to keep their shape and have a firm texture when baked whole.  Others that keep their shape and have a good texture are rome, jonagold, and spartan.  While granny smith do well in pies, they turn to mush when baked whole.
