  • 2 apples
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, cold and diced
  • 1/2 cup oats, uncooked
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut apples in half and turn cut side up. Cut out each side of the core, creating a rounded hole and making sure to leave a bottom.
  3. Place apple halves in a baking dish. Rub the cut sides with lemon juice and fill the centers with maple syrup. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter, oats, cinnamon, and salt. Mix together and press 1/4 on top of each apple, covering the maple syrup.
  5. Fill the baking dish with 1/4 cup water and bake until tops are golden and apples are tender, about 35 to 40 minutes.
