This is a really simple dessert to make and it’s healthier than a lot of other apple crumble recipes out there. This recipe is the perfect way to enjoy apple!
Stuffed Green Apples
4 medium Granny Smith apples, unpeeled and cored with bottom still in place
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ cup unsalted smooth almond butter
½ cup finely chopped dried apricots, divided
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, plus more for topping
⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon sea salt
4 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
Brush the inside of each cored apple with lemon juice. In a small bowl, mix together the almond butter, 4 tablespoons chopped apricot, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Spoon the almond butter mixture into the apples. Top each apple with 1 tablespoon chopped apricots, a sprinkling of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon shredded coconut. Place the cored apples in your slow cooker, and pour water in the bottom. Cover and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours, or on high for 1 to 1½ hours, or until the apples are soft when pierced with a fork.
Chef’s Tip: To core an apple, cut in a wide, circular motion all the way around the top of the apple toward the base. Pop the top off, and cut or scoop away remaining seeds and any tough pieces connected to the core using a teaspoon.
