Hello everyone! For today’s post, I decided to make something with Thanksgiving in mind: baked apples! This recipe is incredibly easy, like a pie or a crisp. If you apple desserts, you’re sure to enjoy this topped with ice cream or whipped cream. Consider making this for Thanksgiving dessert if you need inspiration; Enjoy! 

Caramel Baked Apples Recipe:

Makes 6 half apple servings 


For the apples:

  • 3 gala apples
  • 1 tbs. (11g) brown sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 

For the topping:

  • 8 tbs. (120g) butter 
  • 3/4 cup (90g) all purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup (65g) quick cooking oats
  • 2/3 cup 120g)  brown sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • A pinch of salt 

To serve:


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly oil a baking dish large enough to fit 6 apple halves.
  2. Cut the apples in half and core out the centers. Arrange the apple halves on the baking sheet, cut side up. Spread the 1 tbs. of brown sugar and 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon over the apples.
  3. For the topping, in a medium sized bowl mix the topping ingredients together until a crumble like consistency forms.
  4. Divide the topping between the apples, lightly pressing down.
  5. Bake the apples for 25 minutes covered with aluminum foil; then uncover the apples and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. 
  6. Top with whipped cream or ice cream, and caramel sauce. 
  7. Enjoy! 



  • For the butter, use vegan butter (Earth Balance is my favorite brand)
