Baked Apples

A classic camping treat that doesn’t involve marshmallows! Bring the fun of camp food indoors with this nutritious dessert or breakfast. Get kids involved by having them fill their own apples. Apples are the number one fruit grown in BC and come in so many different varieties, colours and tastes.

Common Allergens
Equipment List
Aluminum foil
Baking sheet
Cutting board
1 cup
raisins (chop these for children 4 and under to prevent choking)
1 cup
shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup
rolled oats or granola (read labels to choose nut-free if needed)
1 Tbsp

1.    Preheat the oven to 375F. Cut apples in half and carve out the core, creating a hollow in the middle of the apple half.
2.    Place each apple half on a square of aluminum foil. Lay out the toppings in bowls and have kids fill their apple hollows with raisins, coconut, oats and cinnamon. Help them fold their foil into a sealed packet and consider marking with their name.
3.    Place foil packets on the baking sheet and bake for approximately 30 minutes until the apples are soft and you can pierce them easily with a fork. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
