Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Baked apples are a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional apple desserts, and all of the flavors and different textures will fool you into thinking you’re eating apple pie! This recipe is also great for those with thyroid issues, as nuts are a great source of selenium, a necessary component of enzymes integral to thyroid function.
