I know, huh. Apples, walnuts, and honey. Need I say more?
Baked Apple with Walnut Filling
4 granny smith apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon honey (plus some for topping)
3-4 drops vanilla creme stevia
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Core and peel apples and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with lemon juice to avoid brown discoloration. Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook walnuts, stevia, and honey over medium heat until walnuts look caramelized. Immediately remove from heat and place them on parchment paper or heat resistant plate until cooled.
Remove apples from oven and put them on individual serving plates. Fill each apple with caramelized walnuts and then drizzle with honey if desired. Serve warm.
*This is something I ordered every night at the spa, but it wasn't in the recipe book I purchased. So I made up my own version.
