Healthy Baked Apples

Healthy Baked Apples

Nothing makes home feel more like Fall than the smell of cinnamon-spiced apples baking in the oven. This recipe use just three simple ingredients, with no added sugars, to make naturally sweet baked apples.

Bry grew up in an apple valley town in Connecticut and strongly believes that apples = Fall. To satisfy his spiced apple cravings, I whipped up a batch of these healthy baked apples. Besides making our apartment smell amazing, these apples are so simply delicious. No need for extra sugar from maple syrup or honey – just let the oven do all the work of breaking down the natural sugars in the apples.

Apples

While delicious on their own, these apples are an ideal Fall-flavored topping. I’ve added them to yogurt, oats (recipe coming soon!), graham crackers (may sound strange but such a good combo), and cheesecake bars (again, recipe coming your way soon). They’d also be delicious as dessert over vanilla bean ice cream.

As far as which apples to choose, I highly recommend Honeycrisp as they get nice and sweet, but don’t turn to mush in the oven. Other good options include Jonagold and Braeburn.

So here’s a toast to filling the house with warm, cinnamon and apple scents!
