  • 4 good size Granny Smith apples or the apples of your choice
  • 4 Tbsp. of rolled oats
  • 4 Tbsp. of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. of salt
  • 1 cup of apple cider
  • Prepared caramel sauce


  1. Take your apples and cut off the tops.
  2. Cut around the core (but not all the way to the bottom because you want it to be closed so the filling doesn't come out). Scoop out most of the core.
  3. From there, you'll use your knife to cut 2-3 circles in the perimeter around the hole where the core was, making sure you don't cut all the way through to the bottom. It should look to have a bullseye effect.
  4. Turn the apple over to the top is face-down. Placing the tip of your knife about a centimeter or so from the center of the bottom of the apple and cut down to the top of the apple. Do this all the way around the outside of the apple. Place them top-side-up into a deep baking pan.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix your oats, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Divide the mixture between the four apples and stuff it into the middle of each apple where the core used to be.
  6. Pour your apples cider over the apples so that it covers the booth of your pan.
  7. Bake for 45-55 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with caramel sauce. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you are making a single apples, the measurements are 1 Tbsp. each of rolled oats, sugar and melted butter, 1 pinch of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of apple cider or enough to cover the bottom of the baking pan.
