  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, fan force.
  2. Place the KANZI® apple halves flat side down and cut a slit every 2-3 mm, making sure you don’t slice all the way through the apple. Repeat to the rest of your apple half. Place KANZI® apples flat side down into a baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl mix together melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and salt. Use a pastry brush to coat the KANZI® (underneath and on top) with 3 ⁄4 of the cinnamon mixture.
  4. Cover the dish with tin foil and cook for 20 - 25 minutes or until the apples are tender.
  5. Meanwhile, make the whipped cream - in a large mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, add cream, sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until medium peaks form then set aside in the fridge.
  6. Make the oat crumb - in a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, and sugar. Add the cold chopped butter and rub with your fingertips until it looks like chunky sand.
  7. Remove KANZI® apples from the oven and brush with remaining cinnamon mixture (try to get it in between the slits!)
  8. Sprinkle the oat topping over the apples and place back in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with fresh whipped cream.
