Baked Apples Recipe

Heart Healthy Recipe Gluten Free Recipe

Baked apples are a pretty apple dessert everyone will love. This easy apple recipe is a great way to enjoy delicious fall apples without any fuss.


    • 3 Tbsp trans fat free margarine, softened
    • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten free, if needed)
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
    • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
    • 4 apples, such as Rome Beauty, skin peeled in a spiral


    • Preheat oven to 375°.
    • In a bowl, stir together the margarine, sugar, oats, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and walnuts. Set aside.
    • Core the apples: Set an apple upright on a cutting board. Insert a paring knife directly into the apple, from the top, approximately 1/2 inch from the center. Carefully push the blade down and around the core of the apple, being careful not to cut all the way through the bottom. Discard the core. With a spoon or a melon baller, scoop out the center of the apple. Repeat with remaining apples.
    • Fill each apple with oat mixture. Stand apples upright in a 9 x 9-inch glass baking dish. Add 1 cup water to the dish. Cover dish with foil. Bake for 40 minutes, or until apples are soft but not mushy. Serve warm.
