Baked apples are an extra decadent treat for breakfast or perfect for dessert too. Serve these with optional sweets like maple syrup or honey or creamy options like yogurt or whipped cream.

Serves 4


  • 4 apples
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk, any type that you prefer
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • Brown sugar, maple syrup or honey, optional
  • Whipped cream, yogurt, crème Fraiche or half and half, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the oats, milk and cinnamon in a small bowl, set aside for an hour. You can also do this the night before if preferred.

Slice the top ¼ off the apples and remove the core with a paring knife and a spoon. Widen the cavity just a bit so it can accommodate the oatmeal mixture.

Mix the oatmeal with the nuts and raisins and spoon it into the apples, pushing down slightly to fill the apple completely.

Set the apples in a baking dish and add about ½ inch hot water to the pan. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until everything is hot and the apples are tender.
