Serves 4 (serving size: 1 apple and 2 tbsp. amlou)

Amlou is a rich, nutty spread similar to chunky almond butter that’s made from ground toasted almonds and argan oil. To take this comforting dessert to the next level, stir in half a teaspoon of orange blossom water into the amlou mixture before filling the apples.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread almonds on a baking sheet. Toast at 400°F until golden, 5 to 6 minutes, stirring once after 3 minutes. Remove from oven.

Step 2

Pulse toasted almonds in a food processor until finely ground, about 10 times (take care not to over-grind them or they could turn into almond butter). With processor running, gradually add oil and honey, and process until combined, 2 to 3 seconds. Transfer to a medium bowl, and stir in oats, salt, and cinnamon.

Step 3

Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Remove core from apples with a sharp knife or an apple corer; transfer apples to an aluminum foil–lined baking dish.

Step 4

Stuff apples evenly with amlou mixture (about 2 tablespoons each). Bake at 350°F until apples are blistered and soft, about 40 minutes.
