  • Mix 2 tablespoons of the butter, honey, oats, and raisins together in a small bowl, then scoop the mixture into the cored apples.
  • Brush apples with the remaining tablespoon of butter.
  • Arrange apples in a baking dish or cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until apple pierces easily
  • with a sharp knife.
  • Cool for a few minutes, drizzle with a little more honey, and enjoy!
