Baked Apples with Banana and Walnuts Filling

It is a really simple recipe but the effect is truly amazing! A sweet apple smell will fill your home. Baked apples are warm and soft with a delicious sweet and sour banana & rhubarb filling (no sugar added!).

To prepare 7 little (or 5 big) apples:
♥  1 banana
♥  2 tablespoons of cooked rhubarb (I buy the frozen one; raspberries would be a perfect replacement)
  1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
♥  3 cloves
  3 allspice
♥  1 cardamom seed pod
 1/2 lemon
walnuts (5-10)

1. Put the apples in a big pot, cover them with water with the juice from half a lemon (it will prevent apple skin to change the color). Cook for 15min.

2. In a meantime, cook the rhubarb. I use a frozen one. I just put it to the microwave for about 5min. No water added.

3. When apples are softer, carefully remove them form the hot water and let them to cool down a bit. Using a sharp little knife, remove the apple core with seeds.

4. Crush all spices and mix them together. Using a fork make a banana puree. Add the rhubarb (or raspberries) and spices. Mix everything well.
