Apple picking season is officially here, and while a lot of the fun lies in taking a trip to your favorite orchard(s), another exciting part of it all is being able to come home and put those apples to good use! What are your favorite foods to make with apples during this time of year? If you’re looking for something new to try this fall, here are some of our favorite healthy recipes:
Cinnamon Apple Chips
Cinnamon apple chips are an awesome alternative to candy – a must for when Halloween rolls around. All you need are some apples, lemons and cinnamon to get started, but, this recipe does have a pretty long cook time, so be prepared.
Apple Pear Oatmeal Crisp
If you usually whip up an apple pie, try this apple pear oatmeal crisp for dessert instead! With a cook time of about 1 hour and 20 minutes and the potential to yield 8 servings, this recipe is perfect for fall days and nights that are accompanied by guests – perhaps a Sunday football party would be a good time to try it!
Dairy Free Apple Muffins
Our mouths are already watering as we think about biting into one of these. What’s awesome about this recipe is that your baked goods are only about 200 calories, but they’re just as delicious as a piece of pie. And since the recipe is expected to yield 12 muffins, you can bake yourself an entire week’s worth of treats in one sitting!
Apple Cranberry Pecan Salad
And now we’ll leave you with a recipe that can be used for lunch or dinner – this apple cranberry pecan salad is filled with antioxidants, and it’s certainly an awesome twist on classic salads! If you normally pack your salads with foods such as turkey or hard boiled eggs, give this unique combination of foods a try.
