Streusel Filled Baked Apples

Soft baked apples loaded with pecan-spiced oatmeal streusel and topped with yogurt and caramel. All of the flavor of apple pie, with less fuss!

Ingredients

4
sweet apples, such as Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp
3
tablespoons brown sugar (dark or light)
1/4
cup Gluten Free Chex™ original quick cook oats
1/2
teaspoon cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon nutmeg
1
pinch allspice
1/4
cup toasted pecans, chopped and divided
1
tablespoon butter, divided into four parts
1
cup hot water
Yoplait® yogurt (either Yoplait® Light very vanilla yogurt or Yoplait® Greek 100 protein apple pie yogurt), for serving
Caramel, for serving

Directions

  • 1 Place rack in the lower middle position of the oven and preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • 2 With an apple corer or paring knife, remove the core of the apples, cutting to within a 1/2-inch of the bottom. Create a well about 3/4-inch wide.
  • 3 Mix the honey, brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and 2 tablespoons chopped pecans in a bowl. Pack the mixture into each of the apple wells as firmly as possible.
  • 4 Arrange the apples in a baking dish (like an 8x8-inch Pyrex dish), and top each one with one piece of butter. Pour water into the bottom of the dish and cover loosely with aluminum foil.
  • 5 Bake the apples for 20 minutes, then remove the foil. Continue baking uncovered until the apples are soft, the skins are wrinkled, and the brown sugar melts into a syrup — an additional 20 to 30 minutes. Test the apples by poking a paring knife through the oatmeal mixture and into the apple. If it slides into the apple easily with no resistance, the apples are done.
  • 6 Let the apples cool slightly, then top with a dollop of yogurt, drizzle of caramel and the remaining pecans. Enjoy warm.

Step By Step  

Fall is upon us, which can only mean one thing – bring on the apple desserts!

As prepared by Well Plated,

Sweet baked apples stuffed with warm oatmeal and drizzled with caramel – the ultimate comfort food. 

Every September, I drag my husband apple picking. Every September, he reminds me that under no circumstances should I buy as many apples as I did the year prior.

Without fail, I pick enough apples to feed a family of 6 farm boys apple pie for a month!

I understand, intuitively, that 10 pounds of apples is an excessive amount for a household of two. Then we arrive at the orchard and I lose all sense of reason. The air is so fresh, the apples so ripe, and the prospect of apple everything is so enticing, I have no choice but to fill my sack until the seams nearly burst. Reality hits when we arrive home, and I realize that my haul occupies every refrigerator drawer and a sizeable chunk of the counter. Suddenly, baking apples into our every meal isn’t just a nice idea – it’s a necessity.

A classic, double-crust apple pie is a tradition, but also a labor of love to which I commit but once per fall. After the pie is done, I love using apples for recipes that are still yummy but demand far less meticulous peeling, chopping, and pie crust making. Enter Streusel Filled Baked Apples, a low-fuss fall dessert that’s warm, comforting, and guaranteed to deplete your orchard supply!


Streusel Filled Baked Apples

These baked apples need only a few simple ingredients: fresh apples, oatmeal, brown sugar, warm spices, and pecans. The nuts are completely optional, but completely delicious, and with Chex Gluten Free Oatmeal, this dessert is completely gluten-free.

Core the apples to create a little “well”, then stir together the oatmeal, brown sugar, pecans and spices. Easy-peasy.

Time to stuff! Pack the brown sugar oatmeal filling inside the apples, top with a touch of butter, then you are ready to bake. The oven sweetens and tenderizes the apples and the oatmeal filling becomes toasty, brown sugary, and wonderful.

These baked apples are lovely eaten plain like this for breakfast, but even more lovely when topped with fun fixin’s. Yoplait vanilla yogurt is a classic choice, and the limited addition Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple is a tasty way to double your fall-flavor hit. The final drizzle of caramel is over-the-top in the best possible way.

 

Streusel Filled Baked Apples

Streusel Filled Baked Apples can be served warm right out of the oven and save well in the refrigerator. Simply reheat in the microwave, smother with yogurt and caramel, then dive into fall bliss.

I’m so smitten with this simple fall dessert that this year when we go to the orchard, I might just have to pick a few extra apples, just to be safe!
