Ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon whole oats
  • Dash of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 325°F and either grease a baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Slice off the top 1/2 inch of the apple, leaving a ring intact. Set top aside.

  3. Scoop out and discard the core.
  4. Scoop out the rest of the flesh, leaving a border around 1/2 inch thick of apple. A small melon baller or a rounded ½ teaspoon-sized measuring spoon works well.

  5. Finely chop the apple pieces and add them to a bowl.
  6. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  7. Fill the empty apple with the mixture. Fill to the top and pack it down. Cover with the apple top and place in baking dish.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes.
  9. Be careful when removing the lid of the baked apple because steam will escape.
