Healthy Baked Apples with blackberries, walnuts, pepitas & sultanas

Servings 4


  • 4 apples (I used royal gala)
  • Handful of fresh blackberries (any berries would work well, fresh or frozen)


  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup sultanas
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 C / 350 F. Wash the apples well and cut the tops off (this allows you to pile more of the filling on top). Using a knife, make a slit in the skin the whole way aorund the apple. It will stop them from bursting. Then using a knife core the apples and scoop out a little of the apple flesh to make room for the filling.
  • Chop the walnuts and add to a bowl with the remaining filling ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Add a few blackberries to the apples and top with the filling. Put as much as you can fit on top.
  • Place apples in a baking dish and add 1/4 cup of water; cover dish and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and cook for an additional 25 minutes or until the apples are tender.
  • Serve drizzled with extra maple, natural yoghurt or ice-cream.


You can prepare ahead of time and keep in the fridge until ready to bake.
