4 green or red apples
1 tsp raisins or currants
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp natural vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2¼ tsp maple syrup
¾ cup mixed nuts
1 tsp shredded coconut
4 tsp rolled oats
2 tspn coconut oil or butter
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a large baking tray with paper.
Cut 1.5 cm from the top of each apple. Make an incision around the centre of each apple.
Remove and discard the cores, using an apple corer if you have one.
Carefully remove the inside of the apple, leaving 1-1.5cm of the “shell” intact to create a bowl. Cut the carved-out apple bits into 1cm pieces.
Place the apple pieces in a bowl, with the raisins, cinnamon, vanilla extract, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of the maple syrup. Add a pinch of sea salt and mix. Fill the apples with the mixture, reserving the bowl.
Chop the nuts and mix with coconut, oats, oil, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and a pinch of sea salt.
Cover each apple with foil, then place along one side of the baking tray. Tip the nut crumble mixture onto the other side of the tray.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the crumble mixture is golden.
Remove the foil from the apples, then bake for a further 5 minutes.
Top the apples with the crumble mixture and serve warm or cooled.
