- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake until golden and fragrant, 4–5 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a plate to cool.
- Pare the skin from the top third of the apples. Core the apples, leaving a 1/2-inch base intact at the bottom and a 11/2-inch wide opening at the top. Place the apples in a small baking pan, cover loosely with foil, and bake until tender, about 15 minutes.
- Combine the walnuts, cheese, and cereal in a bowl. Stuff the apples with the cheese mixture. Cover loosely with the foil and return to the oven. Bake until the cheese melts and the apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool 10-15 minutes before serving. Yields 1 apple per serving.
