Things I have been cooking lately #5: Crumble stuffed apples

Love apple-pie but want to give it a bit of a healthy makeover. Check out this super easy low guilt pud.

Crumble Stuffed Apples

3 large granny smith or other cooking apples

½  cup oats

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup whole wheat flour (or normal but whole wheat is obviously healthier)

¼ cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch of ginger

1 Tablespoon of coconut (optional)

Cut the apples in half and remove the core so that there is a hollow in the middle of each half. Mix together the remaining ingredients to make a crumble. Press the crumble into the hollow  and over the surface of each apple half. Place in an oven safe dish and bake at 180C for 30 minutes or until the apples are soft. Serve with ice-cream or custard depending on how healthy you’re feeling. Serves 3 -6 depending on whether you can stop after just one half…
