Cinnamon Baked Apples with Pecans and Pears

A few weeks ago, I was in my homeland aka Vermont, The Green Mountain state.

We went on one of my favorite fall excursions to the apple orchard.

After coming home with a bunch-ton of apples, I needed something to do with them. I mean, besides eating them sliced with almond butter or sprinkled with cinnamon all day long.

So I made some baked apples.

“That’s not an apple,” you may be saying. You’re right. It’s a pear. I’m about to blow your mind: I stuffed the apples with pears.

Well, pears and pecans and raisins and cinnamon.

I cored the apples with the sharpest knife on the plant.

Stabbing myself approximately 75 times.

After coring the apples and scooping out a little of the meats, I stuffed them with the filling and topped them with a little grass-fed butter.

Beautiful.

Yum.

These were baked in their juices for about 40 minutes.

I heart these baked apples for more a few reasons. One being that there are no added sweeteners– no honey, no maple syrup, no nothin’. These baked apples don’t need it. The fruits are naturally sweet enough.

If I weren’t in the middle of the Fall Nutritional Reset, I would definitely top these with some vanilla ice cream… SO delicious. It’s like apple pie, minus the pie.
