Baked apples

Baked apples

Apple season is officially here (! !) and I’ve been dreaming about this baked apple recipe for a while now. Dreams came true in my kitchen when I opened up the oven to see these tender, cinnamon-coated, perfectly caramelized apples! Let me show you how.

This recipe is simple, requiring 9 (basic) ingredients and 1 bowl.

A mix of sweet and tart apples are peeled, cored, thinly sliced, and added right to the baking dish before being topped with delicious spices like cinnamon, fresh ginger, and nutmeg. Total swoon.

To keep this dish naturally sweetened, I went with coconut sugar (you could also sub stevia or maple syrup)!

Coconut sugar provides a slightly caramelized flavor I adore. All that’s left is lemon juice and sea salt to balance out the sweetness and a touch of cornstarch or arrowroot to ensure the sauce thickens up nicely. Forty-five minutes in the oven covered then another 10 uncovered and you’re in cinnamon-apple paradise.

I hope you all LOVE these baked apples! They’re:

Tender
Cinnamony
Naturally sweetened
Caramelized
Super satisfying
Comforting
& Delicious!

These apples are perfect on their own, but they are extra dreamy with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream or Coconut Whipped Cream.
