Super easy, super healthy. I substituted the cranberries for dates as my partner is allergic to cranberries. Great low GI recipe and sweet enough without any added sugar thanks to the dried fruit.

Any update on the calories issue for cranberry pecan baked apples? I know dried cranberries are a sugar bust but as I start my new healthy eating regime I find I have stacks of them in the store cupboard. I need to find a good healthy way of using them. Any suggestions?

I have used the Livestrong website to calculate the calories. 154g bramley apple, skin on, 80cals. 30g dried cranberries 100Cals 3 pecan nuts 39 cals 1tsp orange zest 2 cals juice of one orange 39 cals Total 260 cals. Obviously if you use less cranberries you will reduce the overall calorie content.

Can anyone advise me of the best temperature to bake these apples at in a fan assisted oven, and a rough time to bake for?

Hi dee_lyn thanks for your question. We would suggest 180C fan (200C conventional/gas 6) for approx 20 mins or until tender.
