The best types of apples for baking

When it comes to baking apples, it’s really a personal preference with both flavor and texture. Granny smith apples are a popular choice. If you want a sweeter result, use a sweeter apple like a Fuji or Gala.

With texture, some apples bake softer than others. Fuji apples are nice and firm, while Braeburn are softer. So if you don’t want a mushy result, make sure to get a nice crisp apple!

Tips and Tricks

  1. You can make these healthy baked apples in halves by cutting the apple in half and topping them with the filling instead.
  2. Baked cinnamon apples work great for a fun breakfast, a snack or even a healthy dessert!
  3. If you have leftovers, just store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.
  4. To reheat, you can put them in the microwave or heat again in the oven. Heat at the same baking temp for about 10 minutes or until warmed through.
  5. You can prep these ahead of time by mixing the filling ingredients. Store them on the counter in an airtight container until ready to use!

Common Questions

Are baked apples healthy?

They can be! It all depends on the ingredients used and what your definition of healthy is. This recipe uses wholesome ingredients and little sugar, so I look at it as healthy.

What’s the difference between cooking apples and normal apples?

The main different is that cooking apples are more tart and less sweet than eating apples. They also tend to be a little bigger in size.

Can you use normal apples instead of cooking apples?

Yep! You just need to be aware that the end result may be a little sweeter since eating apples have more sugar content.

What can you do with apples going bad?

You can do a lot of things! Most common is to cook them down into apple sauce. It’s easy to make, and a great use for apples you need to use up. You can also cook them down and use them as a topping for things like in my amazing oatmeal recipe or as a topping for my vegan buttermilk pancakes.
