Cinnamon Maple Bread Stuffed Apples

A group of friends and I made the trek to a local pick-your-own farm, The Berry Patch, on Friday. It was a crisp fall afternoon—just right for apple harvest!

So right that I left with six pounds ($7.50!) of honeycrisp, golden delicious and sweet sixteen apples. Oops. Time to get creative to put all of those picks to good use!

I love biting into a plain apple as much as the next girl, but jazzing them up every once in a while is way more fun.

Apple pie is delicious, but who has time to slave over the cutting board and oven on a busy weekday? And we usually don’t give ourselves the green light to eat dessert for breakfast. Enter: Stuffed baked apples. Just decadent enough, single-serve and way easy to lighten up with a few simple ingredient swaps!

In 30 minutes, breakfast (or dessert, or snack) is served. Slice in half and top with your favorite Greek yogurt, frozen yogurt or ice cream. Because an extra serving of calcium is A-OK regardless of the hour of day. :)

Cinnamon Maple Bread Stuffed Apples

  • 2 tablespoons peanut flour (I used PB2)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon stevia
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 medium apple, cored
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Optional: Vanilla Greek yogurt and more cinnamon for serving
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and fill an oven-safe baking dish with one tablespoon of water.
  2. Combine the peanut flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and stevia.
  3. Add applesauce, egg whites and maple extract; stir to combine the wet and dry ingredients.
  4. Remove the core from the apple and sprinkle lemon juice on the inside to prevent browning.
  5. Place cored apple in the prepared dish and pour bread batter in the middle of the apple.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, until bread is baked and apple is tender. Serve with Greek yogurt and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired.
