I am one of those people who just love dessert. I have tried to phase it out of my life, but I always end up overindulging that way! I have learned that I can still have my dessert, I just need to plan for it and of course, practice moderation!
BAKED CINNAMON APPLES
This recipe for Baked Cinnamon Apples is delicious. It’s usually my go-to for a quick dessert at home or to bring to a potluck at a friend’s house. It’s a tasty dessert that is delicious and satisfying by itself or paired with whipped cream or your favorite frozen yogurt or ice cream.
How to make these Baked Cinnamon Apples
After peeling and dicing your apples, I like to use a mixture of different varieties for optimal taste, toss them in maple syrup. I like to use cinnamon or vanilla maple syrup. After you lightly grease your baking dish, pour the apples in evenly.
The topping is the best part! I was introduced to almond flour many years ago when I tried a Whole30 and it is something that just stuck around with me because of it’s unique taste. Give the almond flour, maple syrup and butter a stir and crumble it over your apples.
You will know your Baked Cinnamon Apple dessert is finished when it is brown and bubbling and the apples are tender. Be sure to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
Be sure to top your Baked Cinnamon Apples with homemade whipped cream! It’s super easy!
Some of my favorite recipes with apples:
Baked Cinnamon Apples
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (plus extra for greasing)
- 2 large apples, peeled and diced
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup, divided
- 3/4 cup almond flour
Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a small baking dish with a little butter. Set aside.
Toss the apples with the cinnamon and a tablespoon of maple syrup and pour into the prepared baking dish. Spread apple mixture into an even layer and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the almond flour, melted butter, and remaining maple syrup. Stir to combine thoroughly, then evenly spread the mixture over the cinnamon apples.
Place in the pre-heated oven and bake until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender, approximately 25 - 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for a couple minutes before serving. Enjoy!
