That autumn (fall) weather is here if you live in Minnesota. It’s rainy, overcast, and chilly outside. Perfect for hot drinks and warms spices. Treats like these easy baked cinnamon apples are the best for this lazy afternoons. So easy to make and so YUMMY. Like bites of apple pie without the work. This recipe couldn’t be any easier. No peeling, no coring, no pastry. Let it bake and smell the spices as they fill your house with that spiced autumn scent.
Healthy Baked Cinnamon Apples
These easy baked cinnamon apples are also healthy. No oil or butter. Just dry roasted with a sprinkling of brown sugar and cinnamon. The sugar and spice bakes into a sticky sweet coating on the apples that doesn’t overwhelm and gives it that apple pie flavor without everything else.
If you are looking for an AMAZING fall recipe, this dry roasted apple one is it!
We like to leave our apple whole and cut it only a little so that it turns into a pull apart apple. This gives it a really yummy soft and juicy, but still a slight crunch in the middle, texture. It bakes in the oven just long enough for the brown sugar and cinnamon to caramelize into the apple and make it a sweet healthy fall treat.
Healthy baked apples are one of the best parts of autumn weather and great recipe to keep on hand for a lazy evening after apple picking.
Simple + Easy Baked CInnamon Apples
This recipe is only 3 ingredients. That’s how simple and easy it is. All you need are:
- Apples (we love the Honeycrisp or Jazz apples)
- Brown Sugar
To make these apples “pull apart” like we do, simply cut like you would to slice it into normal apple slices, but stop before you get to the bottom. Don’t worry or stress if this doesn’t work for you. You can cut them into thick slices and it will work just as well. Pull a parts are just fun!
Bake the apples for about 30 minutes dry and plain. Then take them out and sprinkle cinnamon sugar into the slices you’ve created. Help open them slightly by placing a butter knife or fork into the slice and twisting slightly to open it up and sprinkle the sugar inside.
If you just sliced the apples like normal, just sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top like normal and bake for another 30 minutes.
Either way you prep it, this recipe is easy peasy and SO delicious and aromatic. Your house being filled with warm spiced smells is half the reason to make this. I could smell it in my back yard even.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
