Baked Apples

I love finding delicious ways to eat in-season, local produce! I’ve been buying organic apples from a local grocery store that (often) uses an orchard a couple of hours away. I’ve made apples sauce that was scrumptious, but my hubby came up with this amazing dessert- baked apples!

When I was little, I had a baked apple somewhere and wasn’t favorably impressed. I decided that I didn’t like baked apples, so I wasn’t too crazy about this idea… until I tasted it! Oh, my! Go grab an apple and give this a try. You’ll be amazed by how simple and delicious this recipe is!

What You’ll Need

  • Glass baking dish with lid or foil
  • One apple, per person (sweet or tart- whichever you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup cashews or other nuts, per person
  • 2 tablespoons raisins, per person
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice, cinnamon or a mixture, per person
  • 2 teaspoons honey, per person (more or less to taste)
  • Yogurt or sour cream (optional)

What To Do

  1. Cut each apple into quarters, removing the core, and put apple skin-side-down in the glass dish.
  2. Sprinkle the apple pie spice/cinnamon evenly over the apple.
  3. Sprinkle the nuts and raisins over the apple.
  4. Drizzle the honey evenly over everything.
  5. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

So delicious!!! This has become one of our favorite fall-time treats and it’s even GAPS-friendly! 🙂

Top with yogurt or sour cream, if desired.
