Baked Apples with Nuts and Raisins



  • 4 firm apples, cored and cut in half
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. raisins
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Dash of ground cloves
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar (or other sugar)
  • 2 tbsp. grass-fed butter

Preheat oven to 350°.  Place apple halves, flesh side up, into a 9×12 baking dish. If the apple does not sit flat in the pan, slice a small piece of the apple skin off to make a flat surface.

Combine walnuts, raisins, honey, cinnamon, cloves, sugar and butter. Put a dollop or two of walnut, honey butter mixture on top of each apple half. Bake apples, covered, for 15-20 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking for an additional 20 minutes.

Place apple onto individual plates and drizzle with sauce from the baking pan.
