Instant Pot Baked Apples are sweet and soft and luscious. It's like eating an Apple Pie without any guilt. And they are ready in under 30 minutes! Delicious vegan and gluten-free dessert | imagelicious.com #vegan #instantpot #apples #ad

Core the apples. Cut out the centre of the apples without cutting through all the way to the bottom. Scrape a little bit of the apple flesh to make room for the filling.
Mix the chopped walnuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Evenly divide the walnut-sugar mixture between each apple.
Add two frozen cranberries to each apple.
Top the filling with 1/4 teaspoon coconut oil each.
Place the apples on a trivet that came with your Instant Pot.
Add a cup of water to the Instant Pot insert, place the trivet with the apples inside, close and lock the lid.
Turn the vent on the lid to the sealing position.
Press Manual or Pressure Cooker button (depending on your model) and using the arrow buttons set the cook time to 3 minutes. Depending on your Instant Pot model, it'll take around 5-7 minutes to come to pressure.
Once the Instant Pot beeps that the 3 minutes of cooking are done, do a quick pressure release. This will take about 1 minute.
Very carefully, as they will be really hot, remove the apples from Instant Pot and enjoy!
This timing works with the Gala Apples that are about 115g each. If you have much bigger Gala Apples then the timing might need to be adjusted.
Note, the skins will split but the Gala Apples will still stay whole. You might want to try cooking for 1-2 minutes if you don't want the skins to split. But I haven't tried it.
You don't really need to measure the filling, just add enough to fill each apple.
