With that in mind, here are some easy, healthy and tasty apple recipes to get you excited about all that fall has to offer!
As simple as they come, all you’ll need is apples for this recipe but add a dash of cinnamon and even brown sugar to taste if you like. You can use any apples for this recipe but those with a little tartness like Granny Smiths work best. Set aside some time for this recipe as the apples need to bake for approximately three hours.
