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
- Cut each apple into quarters, removing the core, and put apple skin-side-down in the glass dish.
- Sprinkle the apple pie spice/cinnamon evenly over the apple.
- Sprinkle the nuts and raisins over the apple.
- Drizzle the honey evenly over everything.
- 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.
