Ingredients
 
 

  • 3 tablespoons goji berries soaked in warm water for 15 minutes and then drained
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon Date Syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 large, firm baking apples washed and cored
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Place the goji berries in a food processor and add the walnuts, Date Syrup, and cinnamon; then pulse until well mixed. Set aside.
  • Peel the top third of each apple. Rub the exposed part of the apple with lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Stuff about 2 tablespoons of the goji mixture into the center of each apple and rearrange the apples upright in a small, shallow baking dish. Pour 1/2 cup of water around the apples. Cover and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Serve warm.
