2 tablespoons rolled oats
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts and pistachios
1-2 tablespoons chopped dates
1/2 teaspoon or more of cinnamon
Dash of cardamom (optional)
1/2 teaspoon rose water (optional)
1-2 teaspoons maple syrup
Orange zest (optional)
Juice from 1 orange
1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place cored apples in a pyrex or any baking dish.
Combine oats, chopped nuts, dates, cinnamon, cardamom, rose water, maple syrup, and orange zest in a small bowl.
Fill the apples with the mixture and then place the butter/coconut oil on top. Pour the orange juice into the bottom of the disk.
