Italian Holiday Table: Baci Baked Apples
Recipe Type: Dessert
  • 3 Medjool Dates, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Mixed Nuts, finely chopped (a mix of walnuts, pecans, and almonds work well)
  • ¼ cup of Oats
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 4 Perugina Dark Chocolate Baci
  • 4 Granny Smith Apples
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Wash and dry apples and then remove the core and a little flesh of the middle of the apple to make room for the Baci and filling, making sure not to go through the bottom of the apple.
  3. Place a Baci at the bottom of each apple and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl mix together the dates, nuts, oats, cinnamon, coconut oil, and maple syrup until well combined.
  5. Fill each apple with 2 tablespoons of the the date and oat mixture. (It’s okay if it’s over flowing a little)
  6. Cover the apples with foil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  7. After 30 minutes remove the foil and place back in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until a knife pierces easily into the apple. Cooking time will vary based on the size of the apple
