Sweet & Tender Baked Cinnamon Apples

Topped with a sweet oat crumble and baked until tender, baked cinnamon apples will be a fall favorite! Top with ice cream and caramel!

Prep: 10 minCook: 50 minTotal: 60 min
Servings: 8 servings 1x


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • Large pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted.
  • 4 apples of your choice (I used pink lady!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grab a large baking dish.
  2. In a blender or food processor, add ¾ cup of the oats and ¾ cup of the pecans. Pulse until they blend into a flour-like consistency.
  3. Next, add the dates one at a time, pulsing until they are broken down in the flour. It will look like a chunky, sandy texture.
  4. Add the mixture into a bowl along with the cinnamon, nutmeg salt, and remaining oats. Chop the remaining ¼ cup of pecans and add them as well. Mix to combine.
  5. To the crumble mixture, add the coconut oil and mix until everything is coated. 
  6. To prepare the apples, cut them in half and scoop out the core. Lay them skin side down in the baking dish and spoon a few tablespoons worth of the filling into each cavity. Feel free to pack it down with your hands to ensure it doesn’t spill out.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden, fragrant and cooked through.
  8. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or maple syrup to drizzle on top!


**These reheat beautifully in the microwave + should last safely for up to a week!
