Baked Apples

A fairly old fashioned dessert, baked apples are still amazing and you should probably eat them more often than you are eating candy or cake. Despite the honey and fruit juices it at least has a bit of fiber.  It's one of the desserts (sans the cream or ice cream) that's easy on the stomach for we crohnies.

Baked Apples

Servings: 1 apple each

Prep time:5

Cook time: 40 minutes or less


  • One Rome Apple
  • 1 Granola bar
  • Assorted Dried Fruits
  • Fruit juices, such as orange, apple, or pomegranate
  • 2 tbs almonds, pecans, or walnuts (or all 3)
  • Honey
  • Butter


  1. Core the apple, completely removing the core by using a small paring knife, cutting carefully through the top, then turn the apple over and cut from the bottom. The cuts will meet with a little prodding from the knife. Discard.
  2. Crush your granola bar, add to a small bowl. Add the dried fruits of your choice - I used currants, dried cranberries, candied orange peel, almonds, and pecans.
  3. Add about a half cup total of fruit juices, more of one if you like that one better.
  4. Add 1-2 tbsp of honey to taste, and mix all of those ingredients together. Spoon into the apples.
  5. Bake at 350, for about 35 minutes, checking for doneness with that paring knife you used. Serve with some whipped cream (we had frozen, so….that's what was used).
