Vegan Baked Apple Bowls



There is no where I’d rather be in the fall season than upstate New York. Aside from having the most breathtaking foliage all around, there is also an abundance of fun outdoor activities like hiking, pumpkin picking and of course, apple picking! With an oversupply of apples in our household, I needed to think of new fun ways to use them. Thus, these baked vegan apple bowls were born!


Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 25 min

Total Time: 40 min

Yields: 4 servings


Ingredients

4 apples

2 tbsp almond oil

¼ cup brown sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

½ tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp ground ginger


Topping

¼ cup rolled oats

1 tbsp flour

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp almond oil

Pinch of salt


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 375° F. While oven is preheating, remove the insides of the apples. To do this, first cut off the top of the apple. Next, cut around the circumference of the apple as close to the skin as possible without poking a hole or cutting the sides. Then cut two slices vertically and two slices horizontally like you’re making a tic-tac-toe grid, being careful not to cut a hole through the bottom of the apple. Finally, use a spoon to scoop out the insides. It may be a little tricky still, so you might need to repeat the slices until there is enough wiggle room to scoop it out.


2. Once you scoop out the insides of the apples as much as possible, place them in a small bowl (minus the core). Add the almond oil, sugar, vanilla extract and spices. Mix well.


3. Next, place the hollowed out apples into an 8x8in baking dish. Put the filling back into the hollowed apples.


4. To make the topping, mix the oats, flour, sugar, syrup, almond oil and salt in a separate small bowl. Once mixed, place on top of the apples.


5. Add about a ¼ cup of water to the baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Let bake for 15 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil and let bake for another 10 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.


(Note: you can store these in the refrigerator and heat them up later for 1 minute in the microwave for a delicious warm snack.)
