Extra Fruity Baked Apple

If you follow my Instagram then you will have seen that I've been experimenting with fillings for baked apples. Now that the weather is getting colder, it's nice to treat yourself to a hot pudding. This combination was my favourite.

1 cooking apple
10g flaked almonds
10g dried cranberries
10g raisins
15g dates
10g oats
30g golden syrup
1 teaspoon coconut oil

1. Carefully core the apple. This is easiest to do with an apple corer or you can use a paring knife.
2. Measure out the dry ingredients for the filling

3. Combine them in a small bowl with the golden syrup. Make sure that everything is coated with the syrup.
4. Carefully spoon the sticky mixture into the hole in the apple where the core used to and press down so that it is levelled off on top.
5. Rub the outside of the apple with the coconut oil.
6. Place on a greased baking sheet and cook at 175 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. You will need to keep an eye on the apple as they can soften quite quickly. Mine was literally left for 5 minutes longer while I answered the door and the skin started to split.
7. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
8. Serve hot with a spoonful of low fat natural yoghurt over the top.

The great thing about baked apples is that you can vary the fillings so much to suit your own tastes.

This recipe contains 402 calories but you could easily reduce that by leaving out one of the fruits.

Next time I'm going to include less fruit, increase the oats and add cinammon and vanilla. 

Speak to you soon
