Cinnamon Apples Stuffed with Walnuts and Raisins

a baked apple stuffed with walnuts and raisins
Prep Time: 
15 minutes
Number of Servings: 


  • 13 cup chopped walnuts
  • 14 cup golden raisins
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 apples (Golden Delicious, Jonagold, or Rome Beauty work best)
  • 12 cup apple juice or apple cider


  1. Combine walnuts, raisins, honey, and cinnamon in a small bowl. 
  2. Core apples from their tops, leaving the bottom portions of the apples intact (so walnut-raisin mixture will not fall out).*
  3. Stuff each apple with the walnut-raisin mixture. Drizzle juice over apples.
  4. Place apples in a 3-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or High for 4 hours, until apples are tender.


  • This delightful dessert also makes a wonderful breakfast. Serve the apples with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a filling morning meal.
  • *If you have a melon baller, use it to core the apples.
