Don’t you love it when you make the EASIEST recipe that also happens to be healthy and delicious and your family LOVES it?
Well, this is one of those recipes!
This is apple season… and you can do so much with apples, like snacking on them alone or with almond butter, or making “Baked Apple Nice Cream”.
This weekend I made a big batch of baked apples, and my kids were diving across the table in excitement.
Only 4 simple ingredients!
And they took less than 10 minutes of preparation time!
I used a medium sized glass pyrex, about a 9″ x 13″.
7-9 cored apples* – as many as your pyrex will fit
I used “Jonah Golds” and they were amazing – they held their shape, but were nice and soft. They had the perfect balance of sweet and tart. They are similar to Golden Delicious but a little firmer and tarter.
Here is a list of good apples for baking.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Place the cored apples in a glass pyrex dish.
- Pierce each apple with a fork about 3 times
- Fill each cavity about half way with maple syrup.
- Generously sprinkle cinnamon over each apple.
- Add about 1″ of water to the bottom of the pyrex.
- Cover tightly with foil.
- Bake for one hour.
Serve warm and enjoy this blissful apple goodness!
*The easiest most efficient way to core apples that I’ve found is to use a traditional carrot peeler. I dig the end of the carrot peeler next to the stem of the apple, turn it so that I make a complete circle and then gentle pull it out with the core. Sometimes you need to “scoop” it back in to remove any extra seeds.
