Bacon and Goat Cheese Stuffed Apples
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut apples in half and core using a melon baller.
Continue to use the melon baller to partially hollow the apple center, creating space to add filling. Reserve apple chunks for later use.
Lay the hollowed apples face up on a baking sheet.
Combine the cinnamon & splenda (it's okay to add more or less of each depending on your taste preference) and generously sprinkle hollowed apples with the mixture.
Dice apple chunks (from apple centers) and place in bowl.
Chop pecans add to diced apple chunks.
Add remaining cinnamon & splenda mixture and goat cheese to apples.
Mix until well combined. Stuff hollowed apples with mixture.
Cook bacon in microwave and chop into small pieces.
Top stuffed apples with bacon pieces. Bake apples for 20-30 minutes or until apples are soft and cheese is bubbly.
