  • 5 gala apples, cut in half and cored
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Carve a tablespoon out of the center of the apple and discard it.
  3. Flip the apple over and cut a small amount to create a flat surface.
