How to make baked apples
You only need 6 ingredients to make these baked apples! To make the topping you’ll need butter, maple syrup, muscovado sugar, almond flour and rolled oats! You can use normal sugar if you want, but muscovado sugar adds a nice caramel flavour to the topping.
Start by melting the butter in a pan, add the maple syrup, sugar and almond flour and cook it until it’s slightly thickened, which takes less than a minute. You want it to thicken as this is what makes the topping chewy and caramel-y.
Once thickened, add the oats and stir until combined.
Cut the apples into half and remove the core. Place the crumble topping on the apples and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes! Done!
These baked apples are best served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or creamy greek yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
