Some people think fall is all about pumpkin, while others argue for apples being the fall staple. We love them both, but there’s no denying that the fall apple bounty you’ll soon be bestowed with presents some big decisions. There’s no way you can snack on all of those apples before they go bad.
You can only make so many pies or so much applesauce too before you grow tired of them. Instead, the answer lies in finding innovative ways to make healthy and nutritious apples into healthy and nutritious recipes.
Here are a few ways to use up that fall apple bounty most deliciously!
1. Apple Pancakes
Apples are perfect for pancakes. They’ll create a warm and cozy flavor you’ll want every morning. To make it healthier, use spelt flour. It will add a nutty taste that works wonderfully with those apples. Top them off with a sprinkle of cinnamon, and you won’t believe how tasty they are.
2. Apple, Veggie, and Sausage Roast
It sounds like a strange combination, but if you take a sheet pan and roast sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, high-quality sausage (Italian works great), and apples, it creates a delightful and warming autumn dinner that everyone will fall in love with.
3. Apple Oatmeal
Instead of getting those packets of flavored oatmeal, get high-quality rolled oats. Add cooked apples with cinnamon and nutmeg on top, and you’ll have a quick, hearty breakfast that’ll stick with you to lunchtime.
4. Brussels, Kale, and Apple Salad
Tired of your usual salad? Shake things up by shredding brussels sprouts into a base of kale. Toss it with fresh apple cubes, gorgonzola cheese (or blue cheese), candied or plain pecans, and a simple vinaigrette dressing, and you’ll have a new favorite for lunch or dinner.
5. Apple and Cranberry Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Not only are sweet potatoes healthy, but they’re also the perfect vessel for creating a new fall sensation. Simply make a crumble out of oats with juicy baked apples and cranberries, and everyone will forget about that sweet potato and marshmallow bake this fall!
6. Baked Apples
Perhaps you’ve forgotten about this classic combo. Baked apples are super-easy and look extra-fancy when you’ve got guests coming or when you want your next home-cooked meal to look like it came from the best restaurant in town. Pair them with your main dish or use them for dessert.
Get pickin’ on those apples, and you’ll soon get cookin’ with these wonderful ways to use them all up.
