The cloudy weather as of late has gotten me in the mood for fall inspired treats. Except, the temperature is the exact opposite of cold so I got creative, and combined the best of Autumn with the best of Spring.
Frozen berries are pulsed together with oats, butter and a few other ingredients to create a crumble, which is then stuffed into cored out apples. Then, the apples are covered in puffy pastry and baked. Woah! Right?
These Berry Oat Crumble Stuffed Apple Bombs are also healthy in the sense they only have two tablespoons of butter and very little sugar. You could technically eat them for breakfast, because why the heck not?
They taste exactly like a handheld berry apple crumble, but with an added buttery crust. Top with whip cream or dreamy vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

- 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
- 4 gala apples
- 1 cup mixed berries, frozen
- ½ cup quick cooking oats
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- A pinch of salt
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Remove the core of the apples, cutting to within a half-inch of the bottom of the apple and creating a well roughly ¾-inch wide.
- Place mixed berries, oats, unsalted butter, white sugar, cinnamon and salt in a food processor. Pulse four times, until the butter represents small pea sized bits.
- Stuff oat crumble mixture into the cored out apples.
- Cut puff pastry into 4 squares. Using a rolling pin, gently roll out each square to get rid of any cracks or creases.
- To wrap the apples, pull the short side of the puff pastry halfway up the side, and then lift the longer sides up to the top. Pinch the seams together to completely cover the apple.
- Place the wrapped apples on a lined baking sheet and freezer for 15 minutes.
- Before baking, brush the wrapped apples with melted butter and sprinkle Demerara sugar over top. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
