Healthy Recipe Friday - Honey Baked Apples

With the fall season here, it brings us a bountiful abundance of apples and I love apples. So this week I wanted to post a very simple recipe but one that is delicious.

Honey Baked Apples:

4-6 Delicious Apples

4-6 TBL Honey

¼ cup Orange Juice

Pinch Cinnamon

I like to take my apples and cut just the tops off. Then take a melon baller and scoop out the core section. Just don’t go through to the very bottom of the apple. Then mix the Honey and Orange Juice together. Spoon this mixture into the center of the apple. Then sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. (If you like, you can also add some raisins and very fine chopped nuts to this mixture)

Place apples in baking dish. You can add just water or a little apple cider to keep the apples moist while baking. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 1 hour or until apple is tender. If your apples begin to brown to fast, simply cover your apples with a little foil.

Let cool for about 10 min. Apples will be very hot!

We hope you enjoy!
