Baked Apples

Pin It

Nothing screams fall like a warm homemade apple pie. And a warm homemade apple pie without all the guilt is even better!

These baked apples were exactly that. They had the richness of an apple pie, but since they're is no crust, you avoid (most of) the guilt. Chris and I both really enjoyed these. We topped them with a little sugar-free vanilla bean ice cream to make the perfect "low carb apple pie" type of dessert. If you want a little indulgence without the extra carbs, this is definitely the way to go. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 same-size Granny Smith apples
  • 2 tbsp. butter, cut into 6 teaspoon-size pieces
  • 1 cup apple cider

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Core apples, making sure not to puncture the bottom of the apples so that the juices will remain. Remove skin from 1/2-inch around top of apples at the opening. Fill each cavity with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top each apple with a teaspoon of butter.

Place apples in casserole dish and pour apple cider around them. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from heat and serve with vanilla ice cream.
