Healthy Recipes with Maple (Slide 24)
If you can manage to save one, there's nothing like a cold baked apple for breakfast, topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or served in a pool of fresh cold milk. The best part is the nut-and-fruit mixture nestled in the apple's core. Don't be surprised if the apples split a little—or sometimes even a lot—as they bake. It's going to happen sooner or later. You can, however, increase the odds that it won't if you use Golden Delicious apples. They may not be the most exotic apples around, but they have pretty good flavor and hold their shape better than most apples do in the oven.
