- Heat oven to 350F. Line an 8"x8" baking dish with parchment paper. Scatter walnuts and oats in dish and toast in oven until lightly browned and fragrant, around 8 minutes. Remove from baking dish, with parchment paper, and set aside to cool.
- Rinse and core apples using a melon baller, taking care not to cut them all the way through to the bottom. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, mix walnuts, oats, cranberries, almond meal, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add egg to mixture and stir thoroughly to combine. Use a small spoon to divide the mixture among the four apples, allowing the filling to overflow a little. Place apples in the baking dish and pour water into dish, taking care not to splash top of apples, until water is around 1/2-inch deep. Bake 30 minutes, then replenish water in bottom of pan. Bake until apples feel tender when pierced with fork, about another 30 minutes (1 hour baking time total).
