Baked Green Apples with Cranberries

This is a much-loved, simple, classic recipe. Using Phytosprinkle in the stuffing means it’s rich in phytoestrogens.


  • 4 large green apples
  • 2 TBSP Phytosprinkle (see below)
  • 2 TBSP sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 TBSP honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
  2. Wash and core the apples. Cut a slit around the middle of each apple to prevent it from exploding into an undesirable shape. The peel will also lift off easily when the apples are baked.
  3. Combine the dried cranberries (reserve 4 berries for garnishing), Phytosprinkle and honey.
  4. Fill the hollowed centre of each apple with the stuffing mixture, pressing down firmly and finishing off with a berry.
  5. Place the apples in a baking dish and add approximately ½ cm of water to the bottom of the dish.
  6. Bake uncovered for approximately 45 minutes, until the apples are browned. Serve piping hot, or refrigerate and serve the next day as a cold dessert.
