Delicious immune-boosting easy baked apples is the best fall dessert to keep your family healthy and happy for the upcoming cold and flu season.
Fall has finally arrived!
This means it’s time to get out the cardigans, drink some cider, rake the gorgeous leaves, and go apple-picking.
Delicious and crisp, apples are a true symbol of fall.
Well, other than pumpkins of course.
My family loves apples! Any way you make it, you can’t go wrong with an apple.
Thankfully, they are also a heart-healthy food, that is full of rich vitamins and boosts our immune system.
One easy recipe that I make for my family quite often is baked apples.
It’s the four food groups: easy, delicious, healthy, and nutritious.
Well, those are MY food groups. As apples bake, they fill your whole house with the sweet aroma of fall.
This recipe is so easy that the kids can help too. I use three main ingredients, but the options are endless.
Other than apples, the two main ingredients are Ceylon cinnamon and raw honey.
Many people don’t realize that the cinnamon you buy in most stores is not pure cinnamon. If it doesn’t state it is Ceylon, then it’s not.
Ceylon cinnamon is the BEST cinnamon you will ever taste and it has so many health benefits.
That regular “brown stuff”, isn’t healthy at all.
Ceylon cinnamon has been proven to help treat diabetes, manage blood pressure, boost your immunity and even fight cancer.
It is naturally soft and sweet, so it blends well with anything. Once I tried it, I could not eat “regular” cinnamon again.
Raw honey is another immune booster. It has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. We use raw honey as a sweetener on almost everything.
We are always fully stocked with raw honey because my dad is a beekeeper.
Honey has so many health benefits, that I could go on all day.
Although, always remember, honey is a no-no for children under the age of one.
With all the health benefits of the apples, honey, and Ceylon cinnamon these baked apples are such a delicious immune booster.
Sometimes, I will add fresh blueberries or strawberries, if they are in season. You could also add in your favorite nuts. We like to add a dollop of fresh whip cream or vanilla ice cream to ours.
Now let’s get started!
- Organic Ceylon Cinnamon Powder
- Pure Raw Honey
- Optional: Berries, nuts, and/or fresh whipped cream.
- Wash the apples and preheat the oven to 375F.
- Use a paring knife or an Apple Corer to cut out the cores, but leave the bottom of the apple intact.
- Place the apples in a Muffin Pan, so they stay put.
- Drizzle 1 tbsp. of raw honey inside each apple.
- Generously sprinkle each apple with Ceylon cinnamon.
- If you are adding fruit or nuts inside, do it now.
- Bake for 30-35 mins.
- Your apples will be full of hot delicious juice when they come out, so let them cool.
- If you want, dollop some whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream inside your apple.
- Enjoy 🙂
Tips for cooking with kids: Let the kids wash the apples. Use the apple corer instead of a paring knife. Give them a healthy selection of fresh or dried fruits to fill their apple with.
