Perfect pie-making is a production: fussing with crust, chopping fruit, foil-tenting edges to keep them from browning too quickly in the oven. For a quicker and easier way to serve up a slice of the season’s sweetest harvest, ditch the rolling pin. These stuffed apples are brimming with cinnamon, chewy muesli and shredded coconut for pie-like pleasure, but the steps are as easy as mix, stuff and bake! Unlike other crustless baked fruit desserts (think crumbles or crisps), this healthier creation leaves excess sugar behind.

Makes 6


6 apples (gala, Braeburn or Jonathan)
6 Tbsp. butter, cool, cubed
¼ cup hazelnut meal
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
¼ cup finely shredded coconut
1-1/2 cups gluten-free muesli or country-style muesli
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup plain yogurt

  4. Stuff apples with mixture and arrange in baking or casserole dish.
  5. Bake apples for 35 to 45 minutes.
  6. While apples are baking, combine yogurt and vanilla to make drizzle.
  7. Serve apples hot, drizzled with yogurt/vanilla mixture.
