Baked Apple

Baked Apple
Standard

If there was ever an indisputably healthy dessert, this is it!

Baked Apple has been a favorite after-dinner treat of mine ever since I was a young girl. Its slightly tart, slightly sweet and slightly textured taste always intrigued me and it wasn’t until recently that I realized just how easy it is to make…

INGREDIENTS

1 whole apple, skin on
1/8 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon honey or raw agave nectar

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Core the apple and fill the center with raisins or cranberries (or a combination of the two).
Place the stuffed apple in an oven-safe dish, pop it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven, sprinkle cinnamon and honey/agave over the center of the apple and place the dish back in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
Scoop the apple onto a plate and drizzle any excess honey/agave from the oven dish over the apple or around the plate for decoration.
Enjoy warm.

Baked Apple Chips

Baked Apple Chips
Standard

Baked apple chips are probably my new favorite snack. I will admit that they take some time to make but they’re very low maintenance while baking. You’ll spend a few minutes preparing them and then you’ll throw them in the oven, flip them once and let your oven do all the work. Also, all you need are apples and cinnamon!

As a note: this recipe makes roughly enough to fill a sandwich size, ziplock bag.

INGREDIENTS

2 apples (I picked out honeycrisp but feel free to use whatever kind you like)
cinnamon for dusting

RECIPE

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
Wash apples and slice them to roughly ⅛” thickness, the thicker your slices the longer they will take to cook.
Discard seeds and stem.
Lay slices flat on baking sheet.
Dust with cinnamon to your liking, I found a light sprinkle worked well for me.
Bake for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and flip slices, dust with additional cinnamon.
Place back in the oven and bake for another 1 – 2 hours.
Remove and let cool.

Towards the end of your baking time you may want to periodically check your apples, ensuring you don’t burn them. I found that at the end of my baking time the apples were still slightly soft when warm but when I let them cool they hardened further becoming more chip like.

I hope you enjoy this snack as much as I did.

Enjoy!
