Servings 4
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes


  • 4 small apples 1 per person
  • 150 g Christmassy mincemeat 1-2 tbsp per apple
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or butter
  • 1-2 tbsp natural Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt per person


  • Preheat oven to 150c
  • Sit each apple on a chopping board and push the apple corer into the centre of each one, removing core.
  • Score around the circumference of each apple with a small sharp. Place in a shallow baking dish side by side. Using your fingers push 1-2 spoonful’s Christmassy mincemeat into the core of each apple, using up all the mixture between them.
  • Lightly coat apples with coconut oil or butter
  • Bake in oven for 25 - 40 minutes, until apples are tender and busting every so slightly out of their skins. (this will depend on the size and type of apple)
  • Remove from oven, serve individually with a good dollop of yoghurt.
