Description

If you are looking for a healthy, sweet treat, you should try these maple almond stuffed apples. They come together pretty quickly and the sweet baked apple taste is hard to beat. The filling is tangy, sweet and healthy. They are great alone, but a little ice cream on top tastes great too.
