Preheat oven to 350F. Rinse apples. You can use any kind of apples you like, but Granny Smith has a little acidity that in combination with honey and natural apple pectin will create an amazing flavor!
Cut off the very top of each apple and use a small scoop or a teaspoon to remove the stem and seeds. Prepare a decent hole for the stuffing, but make sure not to damage the walls of the apple in order to keep the juices inside! If the apples start to go brown, just sprinkle some lemon juice on them.
Sprinkle some ground cinnamon inside the apples and place a cinnamon stick inside each one.
Now you can prepare your favorite stuffing! Just mix chopped nuts and dried fruits. Make sure to add some raisins or dried apricots for a juicier and softer texture. For the cinnamon lovers – you can sprinkle some more on the top.
Lastly, pour a tablespoon of honey on each apple. Make sure it penetrates the apple and blends with the stuffing. If you didn’t use any dried fruits in the stuffing, you can add some coconut oil for more juiciness.
Place the apples on a tray and bake them for about 30-40 minutes (depending on the size and hardiness of the apples) until they are very soft. Enjoy!
Bon Nuppetit :)
