Baked Apples with Almond Cream

Baked Apples

Baked Apples // Serves 6 (with 2 left over for breakfast)

You will need

For the apples

  • 8 apples
  • 80g walnuts, soaked overnight.
  • 50g raisins
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • a good grating of nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp honey

For the almond cream

  • 80 almonds, soaked overnight
  • 150 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey

Step by Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 180/160 fan. Combine the nuts with the spices. Remove the apple cores and using a small knife cut a wider opening on the top. Stand the apples up in a baking dish that holds them snuggly and push the nut mix into the holes, finishing with a drizzle of honey. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until apples are cooked.
  2. Drain the almonds and blend with about 50 ml of the coconut milk, just enough to get them moving, this will depend on your blender. You may need to scrape down the edges a few times. Blitz them to a breadcrumb texture then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Chill in the fridge until ready to use.
  3. Serve the apples with a drizzle of almond cream.
