Fall Bucket List

5 Things to do with apples during this crisp time of year.

  1. Apple picking is definitly a given. This year my family tried a new orchard in New York called, Masker Farms. This place did not disappoint us at all. Plus their cidar & cider donuts were AMAZING! 
  2. Throw chuncks of them in your blender next time you make a protein shake. 
  3. Teach your (age appropriate) children how to peel an apple for themselves. 
  4. Bake a apple something for one of your neighbors.
  5. Finally, bake one apple in the oven for dessert or breakfast for just yourself. SEE RECIPE BELOW

1 BAKED APPLE 

Ingredients

  • 1 organic apple (I like Cortland)
  • 1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon chopped almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon of white chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut flakes
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

STEP 1

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees

STEP 2

Hollow out your apple (I used a spoon and knife)

STEP 3

Mix together oats, chia seeds, coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and cinnamon together

STEP 4

Fill hollow out apple with oatmeal topping(s)

STEP 5

Bake in oven for 25-35 minutes (depending on how soft/firm you like your baked apples)

STEP 6

Drizzle a little extra maple syrup & cinnamon on top once you remove your baked apple from the oven. Use caution before you dive right in because contents will be EXTREMELY hot. Enjoy!
