In my world, there isn't anything more festive than the incredible smell of baked apples covered in spices. So, I made the most aromatic and flavourful vegan Christmas dessert ever. Apples filled with some other holiday essentials, such as almonds, hazelnuts, and pine seeds.

I seasoned the filling with allspice and cinnamon. And added maple syrup and lemon juice to the mix to really get all those Christmas flavours stuffed into these delicious baked apples. You will want to dive into the filling on its own but have some self-control, it tastes much better inside the apples.

Once the apples are baked your whole house will smell like Christmas. Serve these beauties while they are still warm and make sure not to forget that vanilla sauce on the side!
