Baked Apple Delight

This is a wonderful gluten-free version of an old favorite. The delightful flavors in this mixture meld delightfully.

Baked Apple Delight

4 apples
2/3 cup almonds
1/8 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup coconut
juice of 2 oranges
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup dates, chopped
lavender and mint

Core apples, cutting deeply into center so that space can be made for filling.

Grind almonds and flax seeds in food processor until finely ground. Place mixture in a bowl. Add coconut, orange juice, vanilla, cinnamon, agave syrup, and dates.

Place a small amount of filling in the bottom of a baking dish (or dishes). Use the remaining filling to stuff each apple.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 minutes. When apples are tender and baked through, remove from oven. Drizzle with more agave syrup for decor. Garnish with mint and lavender.

*The lavender enhanced the flavor --- allow little buds of lavender to mix with the filling.
