Caramel Apples

Nothing is better than baked apples during fall. When it comes to desserts, it takes a lot for me to move away from rich, chocolatey goodness. I honestly just love rich and fudge desserts. Mik on the other hand, enjoys apples in baking and requested I make some form of caramel apple that is hot a fudgey!

I was feeling particularly lazy, and didn’t quite feel like doing the whole dirty-my-kitchen-and-make-a-mess type of story! I have to admit…..I wanted to find a shortcut that involved as little work as possible (haha!)

This recipe honestly hit the nail on the head. It is literally one ingredient (apples), looks super fancy, yet is SO incredibly easy you wont even believe it. All you have to do is slide the apples, take the seeds out, add the caramel filling and BOOM. You’re left with this hot, fudgey caramel apple that is perfect for any thanksgiving meal, treat or snack!

Homemade Caramel Apples

Earlier this year, in January, we went to NYC (back when travelling was still a thing). We had probably the best caramel apple I have ever had in my life. The apple to caramel ratio was just spot on!

This caramel apple recipe has that same feel, except it is a hot version that has a more apple pie feel. With less than 1/8 of the sugar & calories of that caramel apple- this is a much more worth it version to me!

Thanksgiving Dessert Recipe

Something is juts so comforting and warming about baked hot apples that almost has an apple pie feel. Nothing that screams fall more than flavours like warm cinnamon and hot apples. If you’re feeling extra indulgent- try a scoop of plain vanilla ice cream on-top! This recipe is like a gluten free, grain free version of a caramel apple pie!

Home-made Caramel Apples recipe

                                                                               Ingredients:

Apples: Pick your favourite apple of choice! I personally love a granny smith apple, as they are slightly sour which balances well with the sweet caramel

Honey or maple syrup: I make my own by blending oats in a high speed blender to make a flour consistency.

Peanut butter: This can be replaced by any nut/seed butter of choice

Dash of cinnamon: To give it that apple pie feel

Method:

1.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celisus. Grease a medium baking dish with cooking spray. Prepare your apples by slicing the top off each one. Using a teaspoon, scoop the seeds out. Use a sharp knife and make two circular cuts around the apple. Flip the apple over and place it on a cutting board. Slice crosswise
