Baked Apples

Hello friends!
I would love to say ‘Happy Fall,’ but it has been SO warm and humid all week I am not sure if it is still August or October! Haha
Even though it feels like summer, I am still in the mood for fall foods! One thing I miss a lot about living in Texas is not getting to pick apples at an orchard.  They just don’t have them around here.  However, I am very thankful that the local grocery stores have tons of beautiful apples that I can purchase year round! I love apples and how versatile they are!

I have made these apples a few times and they ended up exploding, so I decided to cut them in half to see if that helped to relieve the pressure, and it worked! They came out SO much better than the test batches!

I am linking up with my fav Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for some apple recipes!

Ingredients

  • 4 Large apples (I used pink lady, but any should work)
  • 4 Tbsp gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 4 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter, very soft
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2.5 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Wash apples and chop in half through the horizontal middle
  3. Scoop out the seeds to make a small space for filling and place them in a large baking dish, skin side down
  4. Blend together the breadcrumbs, the sugar, spices and the butter till well combined
  5. Scoop the sugar filling into each apple (about 1 TBSP)
  6. Mix together the lemon and honey in a small bow
  7. Drizzle the honey mixture over each apple
  8. Bake for 30-40 min or until apples are tender
  9. Allow to cool slightly before eating.

    My mom made baked apples a few times when I was young, but I have never tried to do them myself. I didn’t realize how simple it was LOL Apples are one of my favorite fruits because they are so sweet and versatile.

    I have no idea why suddenly I am having an allergic reaction to apples. My lips tingle, tongue is swelled,itchy and painful and my throat too. I just got tested 2 years ago for food allergies and I wasnt allergic to apples. I think I may to see a doctor because ita crazy I was eating apples last year with no issues. If I could I would totally try this. I think my diva’s will love it.
