Ellen Rodriques


6 large apples
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup granola cereal
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 cup pitted dates, chopped
6 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup almonds or walnuts, chopped
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup apple juice


Core apples. Peel if desired. Place the apples in a 9-inch square baking pan.

In a bowl, combine the cereal, dates, almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of honey. Spoon equal amounts of the filling into each apple packing it lightly.

Stir together the melted butter, the remaining 3 tb of honey, and the apple juice. Pour over the apples.

Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake, basting often with the pan juices until tender when pierced, about 35 minutes longer.

Serve warm or cooled.
