The flesh of the apple is succulent and sweet and the ingredients stuffed inside pack a tasty punch when set free.

Serves: 1


1 large baking apple, cored

1 tsp sultanas (soaked in 1 dessert spoon of apple juice for 20 minutes)

1 tsp pumpkin seeds (soaked as the above)

1 tsp blanched almonds to top

Cooking instructions:

1. Once soaked, stuff the fruit, oats and seeds into the centre of the apple, topping with the almonds, and bake in the oven at 150 degrees for 45-60 minutes depending on the size of the apple (this may be cooked the night before to save time in the morning)
