Baked Apples with Miso Sauce

Healthy baked apples with an exciting miso sauce

Apples reach their full flavor potential when roasted in the oven. They are true comfort food.

The altered texture not only makes for more exciting flavors but may also be easier to digest for sensitive stomachs.

However, the real secret and reason for you to try this recipe lies in the irresistible sauce.

The fine spicy and salty notes are the actual surprise here—the apple almost plays a supporting role.

Miso, the fermented soybean paste, blends perfectly with some crème fraîche and dried fruits. The result is a creamy delight that makes baked apples even more delicious. Hard to believe, right?

Can you imagine baked apples with a sweet-salty twist?


Ingredients for baked apples:

  • 2 local red apples

  • A handful of almonds

  • 2 pieces of dried figs (or alternatively, dates)

  • Cinnamon

  • 1 tsp butter

Ingredients for the sauce:

  • 100 g crème fraîche

  • 2 dried figs

  • 100 ml oat milk

  • 1 tsp light miso

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • Serving size: 2 servings

  • Effort: Low Preparing these baked apples takes about 30-35 minutes, making it a relatively quick and easy dessert.

  • Nutritional value: Strong These baked apples can be a healthy option, offering fiber from the apples, healthy fats from the almonds, and probiotic benefits from the miso sauce.

  • Michaela's Opinion: An interesting alternative to traditional desserts.


1) Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit) with both top and bottom heat.

2) Wash the apples and carefully hollow them out by removing the core and some of the pulp.

3) Chop the almonds and dried figs (or dates) into small pieces and mix with a pinch of cinnamon. Fill the hollowed-out apples with this mixture.

4) Place half a flake of butter on top of each apple. Set in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until they are soft and have a slightly browned crust.

5) While the apples are baking, prepare the sauce. Blend crème fraîche, dried figs, oat milk, light miso, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor until smooth.

6) Remove the baked apples from the oven and serve warm with the prepared sauce.

  • Michaela's Tip: Miso is not just for savory dishes. How about a sweet-salty banana walnut ice cream combination without an ice cream maker? Here's the recipe.
