Ingredients
  • 4 large apples
  • 1 cup raw cashews or almonds soaked 1 hour in hot water to cover
  • 3 Tbl maple syrup divided
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract non-alcoholic preferred
  • ½ cup water + ¼ cup water
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup walnuts chopped (or other of your favorite nuts)
  • ½ cup homemade granola or store-bought Engine 2 Diet brand
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Core, hollow out, and peel the top ¼ of the apple skins. Or, cut in half and core.
  3. Place the apples in an 8-9” baking dish. If the apples don’t sit up, trim a small slice from the bottom of each.
  4. After the cashews have soaked for at least 1 hour, drain them and place into a blender with ½ cup of the fresh water, the maple syrup and vanilla. Blend until smooth. This may take several minuts. Remove with a spatula to a bowl and refrigerate.
  5. Drizzle the apples with 1 Tbl maple syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon. Stuff the centers with a few walnuts.
  6. Pour ¼ cup water into the bottom of the dish, cover with foil and bake for about 30-45 minutes. Check for softness and bake longer if needed.
  7. Uncover and bake another 10 minutes.
  8. Before serving, top with chilled cashew cream and a sprinkling of granola.
