  1. Cut the apples in half through from top to bottom. Scrape out the core and seeds with the tip of a spoon or a melon baller and discard them. Continue to scrape out the apple flesh and reserve it, leaving a shell about 1/8 inch thick.
  2. Put the reserrved apple flesh and the pecans into a food processor. Cover and process until finely chopped, then stir in the agave nectar and cinnamon.
  3. Spoon the mixture equally into the apple shells. Place in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high 4 minutes. Rotate the apples in the dish and microwave on high another 3 to 4 minutes until soft.
