1. Using an apple corer or small paring knife, remove half of the apple core (Don’t cut a hole all the way through the apple, or the stuffing will fall out!)

2. Place fruit, walnuts, brown sugar, and spices into the hole in the apple. Place 1/2 tsp canola oil on top of stuffing and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes until apple is tender.

3. Serve warm, topped with 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt for breakfast, or a tiny dollop of whipped cream for dessert!
