Superfoods, and super-tasty. This is a healthy twist on a classic; your blood sugars will thank you for choosing this tasty sweet delight. It’s also packed with nutrients!

You will need

  • 2 large firm baking apples, cored but not peeled
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 tbsp goji berries, rehydrated (soak them in warm water for 10–15minutes and drain)
  • 1 tbsp honey, or maple syrup, per your preference (this writer is also a fan of aged balsamic vinegar for its strong flavor and much milder sweetness. If you don’t like things to be too sweet, this is the option for you)
  • 2 tsp ground sweet cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger

Method

(we suggest you read everything at least once before doing anything)

1) Preheat the oven to 180℃ / 350℉ / gas mark 4

2) Mix the chopped walnuts with the goji berries and the honey (or whatever you used instead of the honey) as well as the sweet cinnamon and the ginger.

3) Place the apples in shallow baking dish, and use the mixture you just made to stuff their holes.

4) Add 1/2 cup water to the dish, around the apples. Cover gently with foil, and bake until soft.

Tip: check them every 20 minutes; they may be done in 40 or it may take 60; in honesty it depends on your oven. If unsure, cook them for longer at a lower temperature.

5) Serve warm.

Enjoy!
