Easy cinnamon baked apples, made with just 5 ingredients and naturally sweetened. They’re low in fat, so healthy and a super delicious dessert!
My mother used to bake apples very often in fall and winter when I was a child. The kitchen smelt amazing and I love them, so I thought I should make my own recipe and share it with you guys!
She didn’t peel the apples, but I do because I think they tastes better this way, it’s up to you! She also added lots of refined white sugar and I prefer to use natural sweeteners in moderation (just 2 tablespoons), like maple syrup, which it’s my favorite one, although any sweetener will do.
This recipe is extremely simple and easy to make and only requires 5 ingredients: apples, maple syrup, cornstarch, lemon juice and ground cinnamon. Besides, it’s oil-free and low in fat and is delicious with some vegan vanilla ice cream, with our coconut whipped cream or just by itself. Hope you like it!
