Cinnamon Baked Apples with Pecan Date Filling

Cinnamon Baked Apples

I love my grandmother very much…but she is a horrible cook and even worse baker. My mom said the only recipe my grandmother was good at making was these Cinnamon Baked Apples. It was originally my great-grandmother’s recipe but has been slightly tweaked over the years.

An Apple A Day

Apples have become a symbol of health. Luckily, they have some pretty powerful benefits to back up their status.

  • High in fibre to aid in digestion
  • Contains pectin which is a type of fibre that acts like a probiotic
  • Rich in immune-boosting vitamin D
  • Lowers your risk of heart disease
  • Vitamins, minerals, and fibre in apples help to flush all the toxins out of the liver

Holiday Favourites

My mom makes a big batch of Cinnamon Baked Apples for our family Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. They are the perfect dessert to follow up a hearty meal of turkey, stuffing, and roasted veggies.

While us Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month, our neighbours to the south will be enjoying their holiday dinner Thursday. I thought I’d give our American friends a round up of holiday recipes they can try.

Or maybe you’re on the hunt for some yummy Christmas recipes to have alongside your turkey? Save these and have a healthy holiday dinner next month!

Ingredients

  • 6 organic apples (like Honeycrisp, Braeburn, or pink lady)
  • 6 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • ¼ cup raw pecans, crumbled
  • ¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • Splash of water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Scoop out the core from top of the apple, leaving a well. Do not cut all the way through. Place in a glass pyrex dish.
  3. Combine dates, pecans, and pumpkin seeds in a bowl. Evenly stuff the mixture into the well of each apple, leaving a small mound on top of each.
  4. Drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Add a splash of water to the bottom of the pan to help prevent syrup from burning.
  6. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the apples are tender, but not mushy. Use a spoon to use any of the liquid in the bottom of the pan to pour over each apple.
  7. Remove from oven and cool to just warm.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
