  • 4 medium Honeycrisp apples
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans divided
  • Ice cream for serving (optional)
  • Caramel sauce or maple syrup, for serving (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Remove the stem and core of apples with a melon baller, leaving the bottoms intact. Chop up the apple that you remove from center to include in the filling mixture.
  • Combine butter, maple syrup, oats, remaining chopped apples, half the pecans, cinnamon and almond milk in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Fill each apple with about 1/4 cup of the filling and place in an 8-inch-square (or similar-size) baking dish. Top with remaining half pecans.
  • Bake the apples in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes until they are soft and the pecans are toasted. Let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve as is or with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, if desired.



To make this recipe gluten-free (for anyone with gluten-sensitivity or celiac disease) you can simply swap out the regular rolled oats for ones labeled  “gluten-free,” which eliminate the potential for oats to be cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
