Moreover, baked cinnamon apples are healthy snacks for school!

So the autumn knocked on the door. It means that we will have an awesome produce to cook with! Pumpkins, beets, carrots first come to my mind as veggies. And for fruits…Guess what? Of course apples! The smell of cinnamon and apples is a must for any home during the fall!

How to cook easy baked apples in the oven

First cut the caps of every apple, then remove the core, so it has a hole from one side. Place cored apples in the baking tray, fill an inch with water.

The stuffing is actually a mix of dried fruits and nuts. Stuff apples with dates, peanuts, add honey, sprinkle with spices and cover with apple caps. Spices are of course are classic cinnamon and nutmeg.

You can use raisins or dried apricots or plums instead of dates. Moreover you can add chopped pecans or walnuts instead of peanuts!

Bake in a preheated oven for an hour or more until apples are soft.

Bake in water bath, occasionally spooning over the apple water from the pan on top.

The apples I got in the store were pretty big, so I cooked them about and hour and a half, spooning water from the tray on the top from time to time.

You can bake the apples until the softness you like! How long you need to bake an apple actually depends on your taste preferences, size and ripeness of fruit. These apples were larger than in my last year recipe, so these were cooking approx. 1,5 hours.

The skin is thick, but apples are mellow inside. You can check with a fork or gently squeeze with your finger tips to see if it’s cooked.

To speed up the baking process or prepare a faster breakfast, cut the apples in halves and bake skin side down with filling on top. Or check our healthy apple crisp recipe, I will leave the link below.

Baked apples are the perfect autumn dessert! These look amazing and a great way to use up apples.

Baked apples always remind me of my grandmother who used to make these when I was a child. Looks so delicious and comforting!
