These Maple Cinnamon Baked Apples with Oats are a simple and delicious dessert! Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


Units Scale
  • 4 apples cut in half and cored (see tips above)
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • maple syrup
  • 1 cup water


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the oats, flour, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter.
  3. Now it’s time to prep the apples.
  4. Cut each apple vertically in half through the core.
  5. Using a knife or spoon, scoop out the centre.
  6. Use a knife to slice off the stem area, and core area. I do this by making small triangle cuts in each end to cut them out.
  7. Place the cut and cored apples into a baking dish.
  8. Spoon the oat mixture evenly between the 8 apple halves, putting it in the centre of each apple. Don’t worry if it spills out a little into the baking dish.
  9. Drizzle each filled apple with a little maple syrup. 
  10. Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of the baking dish. I start off with 1 cup then add more if needed (check half way through baking), add about 1/4 cup more at a time. You don’t want it too watery at the end…the consistency should be sort of like a sauce.
  11. Bake for about 1 hour, or until the apples are tender and soft.
  12. Drizzle with more maple syrup and serve!
