4 apples, cored and cut in half
2 tbsp butter or coconut oil, melted + extra for brushing
2 tsp cinnamon, ground
1 cup oats
⅓ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup fresh dates, chopped
1 orange, cut in half (for squeezing)
2 tsp orange zest
150g coconut yoghurt, to serve
Preheat oven to 180 – 200°C.
Mix oats, coconut, cinnamon, dates, vanilla extract, orange zest, butter/coconut oil in a bowl and roll into balls.
Rub each apple half with 1 tsp butter/coconut oil (melted) and top with 1-2 tbsp of oat ball topping, press down to secure the topping.
Place apple halves in a lined baking dish and squeeze orange juice over the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the top is golden, making sure not to burn.
Serve with an optional dollop of coconut yoghurt with a good squeeze of orange juice mixed in with it.
