Our very Favorite Baked Apple Recipe: The Oatmeal Cookie Crust makes it a baked apple recipe you don’t want to miss! Plus is a perfect recipe for spending time with the kids in the kitchen.




  • 4 Golden Delicious apples, (or other apples good for baking) cored
  • 3/4 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed (my daughter loved watching the brown sugar “move” in the bowl)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick of butter, (1/2 cup)  cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts
  • optional: a handful of dried fruit (I found some dried blueberries in the pantry, I threw them in and they were a great addition.)
  • optional: vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce


  1. Mix together oatmeal, brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon, salt and optional dried fruit.
  2. Using a fork, pastry blender or fingers, mix together the oat mixture and butter until the oats and sugar hold together in small chunks.
  3. Stuff the cored apple with the oatmeal mixture.  (I had a lot of the mixture left over and just packed it on top of the apple.)
  4. Place apples standing up in a pyrex baking dish, add apple juice to the bottom of the dish.
  5. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove foil and bake for another 25 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the apple and how soft you like them.  (just test with a fork after the 25 minutes and use your judgement.)
  7. Serve with optional vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.


Depending on the size of your apples, and how soft you like them, your cooking time will vary.  (Just test with a fork after the 25 minutes and use your judgement.)
