Apple still ranks as my favorite produce choice for the Fall season, closely followed by butternut squash and pumpkin coming in a distant third. I feel like there’s some unwritten rule that I’m supposed to go ga-ga over pumpkin everything (because, food blogger), but I just can’t do it.

Yes, I love pumpkin but apples? Over and over again, yes. My snack of choice most afternoons is a honeycrisp apple with a smidge of honey-roasted peanut butter. (honey-roasted peanuts, blended into a butter. Try it. Pure magic). I eat this at least 3-4x a week, with no signs of stopping. It’s so, so, good, especially when apples are in season.

I’m also a sucker for baked apples, though I don’t love the awkward handling of trying to eat a whole baked apple. Dessert shouldn’t come with a knife. I want to shove a giant bite in my mouth, while nestled on the couch in the privacy of my own home. Therefore, sliced, baked apples > whole baked apples.

Did I mention how EASY these are? Even if boiling an egg still intimidates you, you can make these apples. Slice ’em, cover in apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg then bake.

I’m a huge fan of these suckers for dessert (with a dollop of ice cream), but I also think they’d make a great breakfast on their own or with yogurt and a drizzle of peanut butter. (See honey-roasted peanut butter, above)
