It’s Apple Season!

Apple season is my favorite season because apples are a staple crop in Minnesota. Not much fruit can grow up north, but apples flourish! Apple season also means that apples go on sale at every grocery store, which is the best day ever.

Today we are sharing some staple healthy apple desserts from Fit Foodie Finds. These recipes are made with 100% whole grains, unrefined sugars, and all the apples. In this post, you’ll find baking recipes, smoothies, crisps, and more!

What apples are best for baking?

Sweeter apple variations such as fuji and gala are the best for baking because they naturally enhance sweet flavors in dessert recipes, but any kind will work.

Applesauce Tip

One thing that we love to have on hand during apple season is applesauce. It’s such an amazing thing to bake with and a great way to use up all of your extra apples. Check out some of our basic applesauce recipes from FFF.

  • Instant Pot: short on time? Use our Instant Pot applesauce method for a quick tutorial.
  • Crockpot: let your apples sit all day long and then blend them into a delicious homemade applesauce treat.

Tip: applesauce is a great substitute for oil/fat in a lot of baking recipes. Try swapping out half the oil for a little applesauce to cut fat and calories.
