Baked apples are a luscious breakfast or brunch treat that's good for you as well as easy to make. And with crushed almonds rather than the traditional breadcrumbs, it's gluten-free as well. Recipe contributed by Caryn Hartglass, founder of Responsible Eating and Living.
- 2 tablespoons almonds
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 4 large organic apples, cored
- Nondairy yogurt for serving, optional
Chop the almonds and mix with the raisins and spices.
Place the apples in a baking dish and add a small amount of water, about ½ inch in depth.
Fill the cored centers with the almond/raisin mixture. Bake at 350º F until apples are soft, about 40-50 minutes. Test occasionally.
Remove from oven. Plate each apple with some of remaining juice in the baking dish and serve with nondairy yogurt if desired.
