It’s prime apple-picking season kids and I’ve got over 20 healthy apple recipes that you guys are going to love. I love adding crisp apples to hearty salads, and of course baking them into warming recipes like muffins, crisps and pies.
There’s literally nothing better than fall desserts. Cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves — give me all of the cozy spices. If you need a place to start, try these fun apple & brie crostinifor the perfect snack or even app for game day! So easy, so incredible. Hit up your local orchard and get ready to make your new fav recipes!
Which apples are best for baking and cooking?
I’m a huge fan of honeycrisp apples because they’re so juicy, crisp, and perfectly sweet, but you can really use any apples you’d like in these recipes! I do recommend using firmer apples for baking because they’ll hold their shape the best.
- Firm apples: Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Braeburn, Haralson, Pink Lady, Golden Delicious
- Softer apples: Gala, Fuji, McIntosh, Red Delicious
Should I peel the apples?
This also really depends on the recipe you’re making. For things like salads, pancakes, and crostini you can feel free to keep the skin on the apples. For pies, crisps and cakes I recommend peeling them so that the skin doesn’t interfere with the texture of the dessert.
