Stuff mixture into the cavitites and pour over orange juice.
Prick apples a few times with a fork to prevent them from bursting.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, till apples are tender and the filling is golden. (If the topping begins to burn, put a piece of foil, shiny side up, over apples.)
Serve with low-fat yoghurt.
Cook's notes
If you are really stuck for time, simply bash a few pieces of peanut brittle, add two or three teaspoons of honey and use that as a stuffing.
