Baked Caramel Apples (Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

These Baked Caramel Apples are a healthy breakfast or dessert. Great with oatmeal, on top of ice cream, or just eaten plain!

I never knew how wonderful apple picking was until I moved to New England!  There are tons of local orchards here with many varieties of fresh apples to pick and choose from.  A lot of the orchards in the area also have fresh ciders and wines too… so doing an apple picking/wine tasting day is so much fun.

I normally make Rustic Slow Cooker Applesauce with my orchard bounty… but decided to try something a little new this time. These Baked Caramel Apples are great to use in other recipes too.  And with using maple syrup (or honey) you can avoid refined sugars.

  • Fresh baking apples, use a hearty variety
  • Cinnamon

One of the best things about these Caramel Apples is that they are super healthy – instead of using a store-bought prepared caramel, this recipe makes its own ‘caramel sauce’ while it cooks in the oven!  Tossing the apples half way through cooking coats the apples in the rich caramel sauce, yum!
