delicious baked apples and cashew creme frosting

I used the names of these recipes right out of the book - (I just bought this book.. if you couldn't tell)
These were awesome. And they're probably difficult to screw up...

Oven! 350. as usual.
Part 1 (page 145 if you have the book) But I changed it a little.. of course.
6 large Gala apples - carefully cored.. but mine broke. and I think it looks cool. I did it on purpose.
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup honey (brown sugar for the vegans.. that would be a good album name.)
1.0 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
6 tbsp maple syrup

Set the apples in a baking dish. Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl (save some maple syrup). Spoon the mixture into the apples - pack 'um down.. then pour maple syrup over the top of each apple. Add about 1/2 cup of water to the bottom of the dish and bake for about 30 minutes. 2 or 3 times while they're cooking, spoon some of the cinnamon water from the bottom of the dish over the apples..

While they're cooking.. you can make this ridiculously easy and delicious healthy frosting!!
Cashew Creme Frosting (pg 171.. the author mentions using this on a carrot cake. I'd say it's a must!) This recipe is really awesome. Man.

2/3 cup whole coconut milk
1/3 cup medjool dates, pitted
1 cup raw cashews
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Serve on top of the apples, and devour.
