Ingredients

Apples:

6 small Gala apples

2/3 cup packed pitted dates 

2/3 cup chopped walnuts 

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces 

2 teaspoon vanilla 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon Pinch of kosher 

2 tablespoons honey 

Yogurt:

2 cups Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons honey, or more to taste 

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

Directions

  1. For the apples: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut off the top 1/2-inch of the apples. Use a melon baller to scoop out the apple seeds and cores.
  2. Pulse the dates, walnuts, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a food processor until it forms a paste. Divide the mixture evenly among the scooped-out apples. Place the apples in a baking dish. Mix the honey together with 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl, then drizzle the mixture over the apples. Bake until the apples are tender but not falling apart, 30 to 35 minutes.
  3. For the yogurt: Meanwhile, stir together the yogurt, honey, lemon zest and cinnamon.
  4. Serve the apples with dollops of the honeyed yogurt.
