Baked Apple Slices Recipe

This baked apple slices recipe makes an easy, healthy dessert that has only 4 ingredients.

All through apple season I just adore creating sweet apple desserts just like this one. If you have access to apple trees, then it’s the perfect dessert to celebrate the apple harvest – warm, comforting and sweetness from a simple recipe.

The sweet treat is the perfect way to get your apple pie fix, without the fuss or calorie density that comes from a slice of apple pie.

This is the ultimate autumn or fall recipe, while baking, the whole house smells incredible, you can’t help but feel at peace with the world when you’re enjoying a generous portion of warm cinnamon apples with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream.

The 4 Ingredients You’ll Need

To make the easy baked apples, you only need these four healthy ingredients:

Butter – unsalted butter is called for in this recipe, you can use a dairy free alternative if you want the dessert to be dairy free instead.

Sugar – I’ve used demerara sugar in this instance, for the golden flavor that works so well with apples and cinnamon. You can feel free to swap for any sugar or sweetener you’d like.

Cinnamon – I’ve suggested 1 to 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon in the recipe because it really depends on the cinnamon sugar ratio you’re after and how rich in cinnamon flavor you want the dish to be.

Apples – you can use any fresh apples or combination of apples you’d like in the dessert – choose from granny smith apples, fuji apples, tart apples, sweet apples, honeycrisp apples, really any apple varieties will be brilliant in this delicious dessert.

You’ll need two to four whole apples, it just depends on the size of the dish you’ll be using and how many people you’d like the dessert to feed. I aim for around a half an apple per person, so usually bake with 2 large apples for my family of four.

The apples can be peeled or left un-peeled, which I prefer for the color, texture as well as fiber and added nutrition that the apple peels bring to the healthy recipe. (Not to mention skipping the step and fuss of peeling apples!)

Optional Extra Ingredients

Here are ideas for more simple ingredients to include in your cinnamon apple slices dessert:

Lemon – add in lemon zest or lemon juice to balance the flavors.

Vanilla or Salt – add vanilla extract or salt to enhance the sweetness or flavor of the easy recipe.

Spices – add in a sprinkling of warm spices such as nutmeg, ginger or even pumpkin spice.

Maple Syrup or Honey – add in or swap some of the sugar for maple syrup or honey.

Oats – sprinkle oats over the apples, before the dish goes into the oven for a speedy apple crisp type dessert.

Nuts – as with the oats, sprinkle over ground almonds, slivered almonds or your chopped nut of choice for a speedy apple crumble type dessert.

Toppings – enjoy your easy baked apple slices on their own, or you could top a portion with a generous swirl of whipped cream, scoop of vanilla ice cream, vanilla custard, caramel sauce, granola or natural yogurt.
