This is the easiest baked apples recipe! Two apples filled with oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Baked until perfectly tender and wonderful for breakfast, dessert, or a snack.
If you’re looking for a simple baked apples recipe, you’ve come to the right place. This delightful apple recipe is perfect for making just two baked apples.
I grew up eating baked apples filled with brown sugar, oats and cinnamon. My mother used to make this dessert all the time for me when I was younger.
I always felt I was getting a wonderfully sweet dessert, and my mom enjoyed making it because it was on the healthier side.
I still love baked apples.
Years ago, when I baked for my large family, I would double and triple this recipe and make a larger batch.
Since I’m not cooking for all my kids any longer, this small batch recipe yields the perfect amount.
If you’re making these baked apples for one, you could enjoy one apple in the morning and another in the evening.
These baked apples are filled with a dreamy mix of oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Then, they are topped with a dot of butter.
Simple ingredients and the apples taste amazing!
The apples are heavenly when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Baked Apples Recipe For Two
- 2 medium apples (such as Gala, Jonagold, Fuji or Honeycrisp)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Rinse and dry the apples. Using a sharp knife or an apple corer, cut out the cores, leaving the bottom 1/2-inch of the apples intact and creating a well roughly 1-inch wide.
- Mix the brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Divide this mixture between the two apples, packing the mixture into the wells firmly.
- Arrange the apples in a small baking dish, and top each apple with 1/4 tablespoon of butter.
- Pour the hot water into the bottom of the dish.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the apples are cooked through and tender.
- Remove the apples from the oven and spoon the juices from the dish over the apples.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
