Hi Friends!

Allow me to introduce you to these Baked Apple Packets. Have you been apple picking yet this year? Or perhaps you have it on your to-do list for an upcoming weekend? This easy recipe idea is the perfect way to use up some of those apples.

I like these as a dessert, topped with ice cream….but you could easily top them with yogurt or extra peanut butter and enjoy them for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Plus they’re easy to customize. I mixed my apples with cinnamon, ground flaxseed and hemp seeds and then topped with peanut butter, chocolate chips and ice cream. You could toss yours in just cinnamon and sugar if you wanted, drizzle with chocolate sauce, top with chopped nuts or granola, add a scoop of yogurt on top etc.

There’s no real recipe here because you can make as many or as few as you want. And no exact cooking time because you can cook them as long as you want depending on how soft you want your apples. AND if you wanted to, you could cook these on the grill or over a camp fire!
