Maple Baked Apples with Toasted Oats and Almonds

Recipe by mielhollinger

Tart apples work best for this recipe-- their slightly sour taste pairs well with the sweet maple syrup and nutty almond flavor. You can also substitute firm peaches for the apples, if desired.

It didn't quite have the stick-to-your-bones dessert flavor that I was hoping for, but that taste generally comes with massive amounts of butter and calories, so at the end of the day its a very tasty healthy dessert. I subbed walnuts for almonds as that was all I had on hand.
