In a small bowl place 2 tablespoons of apple juice over dried currants or cranberries to re-hydrate while you prepare apples
Cut the tops off of the apples and hollow them out with a paring knife or serrated grapefruit spoon reserving the edible apple pieces. Don’t peel the organic apples, since most of the fiber and nutrients are in the skin, but do cut out the core.
Dice and place apple pieces in a large bowl. Put the cored apples in an 8 X 8 inch casserole dish and set aside
In the large bowl of chopped apple pieces toss in nuts, dates, ginger root, oat flakes,spices, salt. currants and juice it was re hydrating in, 1/4 cup of maple syrup and all butter. Mix with a spoon until you have a crumbly mixture.
Stuff each apple with the nut/seed mixture, then drizzle with remaining apple juice and 1tablespoon more maple syrup to keep it moist and place in an 8 x 8 inch square baking dish.
Bake uncovered for 40 minutes – 1 hour until the fruit is just soft. You may need to adjust baking times depending on how big the apples are.
Serve each baked apple with optional whipped coconut cream & enjoy the true taste of apples!
