There are several things that I love about this easy baked apple recipe. First, it’s so simple to make – so much so that it’s a fun recipe to make with kids!

It reminds me of fun fall days, picking apples with my family with leaves turning yellow, brown and red on the trees all around us. Best of all, they are delicious!

The topping is like a soft fruity oatmeal cookie on a bed of warm baked apple. It’s fantastic served right out of the oven by itself, or with a little whipped cream or ice cream if you like.

And it’s also great for breakfast with a dollop of greek yogurt.

Baked Apples with Rolled Oats and Dried Fruit

Baked Apples stuffed with Rolled Oats and Dried Fruit. Great with ice cream or yogurt!


  • 2 Firm Apples
  • ¼ Cup (60g) Dried Fruit (such as cherries, cranberries, raisins or apricots)
  • 8 Pecans or Walnuts
  • 3 Tablespoons (45g) Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Cup (60g) Rolled Oats
  • 1 Teaspoon +, (5.5g) Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon (15g) Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon (15g) Greek Yogurt
  • 4 Tablespoons (90g) Softened Butter


  1. Finely chop the pecans and dried fruit. Combine with the oats cinnamon, flour, Greek yogurt, softened butter, and sugar.
  2. Cut the apples in half, and remove the seeds and carve out a small well in the center.
  3. Sprinkle the apple lightly with sugar and cinnamon (if you used tart apples).
  4. Fill each apple with the rolled oat topping, pressing it down lightly
  5. Place the apple halves in a baking dish (or I like to place them in muffin tins)
  6. Bake them for 25 to 35 minutes in a 375 F (190 C) degree oven (until the apples are soft)

I've made this dessert so many times, but I've never thought about adding dried fruit to the topping. Genius idea!

We made these last weekend and they were delicious. A lovely Autumn dessert and easier than making a pie.

I love recipes that make the fruit the central aspect. This is perfect.
