Baked Stuffed Apples

It finally feels like fall here. Finally. After a weird two weeks of 90 degree weather and a late September swim in the Atlantic last weekend. Yesterday, a cool breeze blew the heat and humidity out. It was September picture perfect: clear blue sky, crisp leaves crunching under my feet. It begged me to go apple picking. And that’s what we did.

My aunt was along apple picking with Goose and I yesterday. She can’t eat raw apples anymore and was really sad about it so she asked if I could make something apple-y for her. Now, my aunt has many fabulous qualities but baking and cooking aren’t among them. She did, however, manage to successfully make my gluten free cranberry apple crumble for a holiday gathering last year though.

Baked Stuffed Apples, all the ingredients you need

I was so proud.

But I don’t mind baking for her. She asked for something lighter but still decadent feeling. So these baked stuffed apples seemed like the perfect thing to put together for her. No pie crust or caramel so it’s a little lighter feeling even with all the butter and maple syrup. (These baked stuffed apples would be Buddy the Elf approved.)

Baked Stuffed Apples: Ready for the oven

And let me tell you: these baked stuffed apples are so dang good. They are buttery and taste exactly how I imagine fall would taste. And you guys, I really wish you could smell them. My house smelled amazing while these did there thing in the oven this morning. It was such a lovely way to start a fall day.

Even better? These baked stuffed apples not only made me feel good because they smelled and tasted amazing, they made me feel good because I’m able to help victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. These apples were made with butter made from Real California Milk. Real California Milk is participating in the Great American Milk Drive. When you buy a product made with Real California Milk and use #SealsForGood and tag @RealCaliforniaMilk on facebook or @RealCaliMilk on Instagram through December 31, they will donate $5 dollars to the Great American Milk Drive, which benefits the hurricane relief efforts.

  • 6 baking apples
  • 3/4 cup of oats
  • 1/4 cup of walnuts, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 6 tbs of brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter made with Real California Milk, divided
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, plus extra for sprinkling inside apples
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400. While oven is preheating, core the apples, leaving them hollow on the outside. Place into a casserole dish. Sprinkle cinnamon inside apples.
  2. Cut the butter into small chunks, reserving 2 tbs. In a small bowl, mix butter, oats, spices, vanilla, walnuts, and maple syrup together with a fork. The mix should resemble coarse oatmeal cookie dough. Stuff mixture into each apple.
  3. Top each apple with remaining butter and brown sugar. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Enjoy!


We used Jonagold apples. Golden Delicious or Granny Smith would be very good in this as well.

    I love baked apples especially in the Fall, it just seems like apples and Fall go together. I was looking on my kitchen to see if I had all of the ingredients and I have everything except the butter made with real California milk. So since they are giving some of the money to the hurricane survivors I will get some.
