Baked Apples

Happy Monday!

Today I have another healthy alternative to the usual Christmas cookies for you - namely baked apples! 

I love baked apples and I make them several times every Christmas season. Now, we just got a new oven and since I need to try out all it different functions, I made baked apples like three times in the past seven days - yummy :) 

It is very easy to make baked apples and all you need are these few ingredients:

Apples (choose a big and sour kind, I usually like to use Boskop apples)
Almonds (buy chooped ones or chop them yourself)

You can also add marzipan if you like - it will be less healthy of course but its also very very very very delicious with marzipan :) 

You need to core your apples before baking them - I use a seeder to do this and I highly recommend using this nice little utensil since it makes it so much easier to core apples for both baked apples and for dried apple rings. 

When the core is gone you can put the raisins and almonds inside the apple. You can also put the marzipan if you choose to add it. I like to make a bottom out of marzipan so that the raisins and almonds do not fall through. 

Preheat your oven to 180°C and bake the apples for around 18 minutes (or until soft). 

I like to eat baked apples with a raw, vegan, and sugarfree vanilla sauce. The sauce is as easy as it can be: 

I just put some dates, almonds and some vanilla bean in my high speed blender, add a little bit of water and blend it until I have the sweetest, creamiest, most healthy vanilla sauce ever! 

Try it - you will not regret and you will not even notice that you are eating something super healthy :)

Have you tried baked apples? Do you like them as much as I do? What is your favorite recipe for baked apples? I would love to know!

Sending much love and wishing you a wonderful week ahead!


  1. These look absolutely delicious! I've never tried baked apples before. But I think I will now. I've actually been meaning to try it :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    PS. I don't remember if I've mentioned it before, but I'm 100% plant based / vegan. The only thing that would make me a non vegan is the fact that I still wear leather (old leather that I bought prior to changing my lifestyle). What do you think of being vegan but still wearing fur or leather? I obviously wouldn't go out and buy fur and leather. But I think it's okay to still wear it. What are your thoughts on this? I'd love to know :) I don't know any other vegans lol.

Actually I've never baked apples, I only baked them in cakes:) But I've always wanted to try a recipe like this one, I think I should still have a recipe for baked apples with cocoa, but I will have to find it. The recipe for vegan vanilla sause is amazing, really great idea! Have a nice evening, hugs:)))
