Wondering what to make with apples? Here are 20 healthy apple recipes including ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts!
With the start of school comes the start of apple season! As temperatures start to cool down here in Michigan, I get excited to start making tons of sweet and savory dishes with freshly picked apples! While baked goods are an obvious go-to for apples, I love including them in oatmeal and smoothies as well. My family makes it a family outing to go apple picking each year, and my boys are excellent at it by now, bringing me lots of fresh ingredients. If you love apples like I do, but want to switch things up, I’ve compiled 20 Healthy Apple Recipes for you to make this season.
Frequently asked questions:
What apple is perfect for baking?
Fuji or gala apples are a great baking apple! These apples are both crisp and very sweet. Granny Smith are also a great variety if you like things mroe tart.
Can you freeze apples?
Yes! Use freezer bags, and any apple will be good in the freezer for 3 to 6 months.
When is apple season in the US?
Depending on the variety, apple season usually starts in late July and runs through November.
