Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tbsp white whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp cold unsalted organic butter, cut into 3 or 4 pieces
  • 2 tbsp maple sugar
  • 2 tbsp chopped dried unsweetened apricot
  • 2 tbsp slivered unsalted almonds
  • 1/2 tsp each ground cinnamon 
and ginger
  • 6 red apples (such as Gala or Honeycrisp)
  • 1/2 cup raw apple cider or unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 6 tbsp plain Greek yogurt, optional

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, combine oats and flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until it resembles small peas. Add maple sugar, apricot, almonds, cinnamon and ginger, and stir. Set aside.
  2. Using a paring knife or melon baller, remove the core from apples, leaving bottom intact. Divide oat mixture evenly into centers of apples, packing stuffing tightly. To a 5-qt slow cooker, add apples. Pour apple cider around apples and drizzle with maple syrup. Cover and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours or until apples are tender when pierced with a knife. Serve warm, drizzle with sauce and dollop with yogurt (if using).
