Smoked Stuffed Apples

STOP what you are doing and GO prepare these Smoked Stuff Apples for dessert tonight. I have always loved “baked” apples for dessert but I really wanted to try something a little different and “dress” up the traditional baked apples. We smoked these on our Traeger and used Hickory pellets – they really couldn’t have turned out better! Overflowing with crisp cinnamon oats and topped with vanilla ice cream, what more could you want?! Shane and I had another couple over last night and these were a huge hit!

While we “smoked” these apples – you could definitely make these just as easily in the oven. I would suggest baking them at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender and bubbling. However, if you have a grill/smoker I would encourage you to test it out this way – you’ll never go back!

ingredients:

  • 6 granny smith apples
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil (
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • vanilla ice cream
  • caramel sauce

directions:

  1. Prep smoker (we have a Traeger – and set it to 375 degrees and Shane used Hickory pellets).
  2. Peel and chop 1 apple. Then slice the tops from remaining apples and hollow them out using a melon baller. Chop scooped out apple and set to the side to use for filling.
  3. Stir together old fashioned rolled oats, coconut oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped apple.
  4. Scoop mixture into hollowed out apples until completely full – sprinkle any leftover filling over the top.
  5. Smoke on grill for 40-45 minutes or until apple skin is softened and visibly bubbling.
  6. Serve in bowl – topped with vanilla ice cream, caramel drizzle, and cinnamon.

As always, ENJOY and please be sure to tag me @littlehouseinop if you test out any recipes – I love to see them in all of your kitchens.
