Whole Baked Apple Crumble


    How sweet it is! With this crumble, the apple is merely the beginning, and the healthy medley of figs, apricots, and walnuts provides both a flavourful accent and a final course boost of good taste.


    2 Tbsp (30 mL) walnuts, chopped
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) dried figs, chopped
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) apricots, chopped
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) raisins, chopped
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) allspice
    6 Tbsp (90 mL) granola
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) walnut oil
    6 baking apples, core removed from the top
    1/2 cup (125 mL) orange juice

    Mix together all ingredients except apples and orange juice and set aside.

    Using a melon baller (not an apple corer), and starting from the top of the apple, scoop out the core, leaving 1/4 in. (0.6 cm) at the bottom of the apple intact.

    Place the apples in a casserole dish small enough for the apples to be touching each other. Stuff the apples with the filling and pour the orange juice over all.

    Cover and bake at 350 F (180 C) for 1 hour.

    Remove the lid and cook uncovered for 30 minutes or until the apples are soft and the tops crispy.

    Serve warm with low-fat vanilla yogourt or fromage frais.

    Serves 6.

Fresh is best Squeeze fresh lemon on patties while cooking to give them the fresh zing of citrus.
