Fall is coming, and there is nothing like having apples in the fall. Soon there will be apples everywhere! So why not make some stuffed apples for dessert (or breakfast!)?
Makes 6 servings
- 6 apples
- 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
- 1/3 Cup chopped nuts (i used almonds)
- 1/4 Cup Dates
- 1/4 Cup Raw Honey
- 3 Tablespoons melted Butter
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3-6 dried cranberries per apple (Optional)
- Granola for topping
- 2 Cups of water
Peel and core top of apples.
Sprinkle apples with lemon juice.
Combine nuts, dates, honey, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg in food processor and blend until it forms a paste.
Place apples in slow cooker. Fill apples with the paste and put cranberries in each apple. Sprinkle tops with a light dusting of Cinnamon.
Pour 2 cups of water in bottom of the slow cooker. Cook on low 4-5 hours or until apples soft.
Serve with granola on top, and enjoy!! These are even better when you use local apples and local honey!
