The weather has been cold and dreary here in Durham and I have loved every minute of it! It finally feels like fall. I’m looking forward to seeing the leaves change and wearing sweaters again. Not to mention creating recipes that are full of apples, pumpkin and butternut squash.
I have a roundup of apple recipes for you to enjoy over the weekend and beyond. Apples in biscuits, kugel, cake bars, creamer, muffins and, of course, an oatmeal.
These are the biscuits I’ve been craving since the weather has gotten cooler. Autumn Cinnamon Apple Biscuits are easy to make, delicious to eat, plus they’re full of whole grain goodness.
Any time is a good time to have some noodle kugel. This one has apples, cashew cream, a date caramel, walnuts and is gluten-free with homemade quinoa-flax noodles!
These Apple Walnut Bars are made with whole grains and a little apple brandy to help you celebrate fall! Grab an apple bar, a Maple Spice Hot Toddy, your sweater and sit on the deck and watch the leaves fall.
If you are feeling jealous of all the fall coffee creamers in the supermarket get ready for some fun. This Easy Slow Cooker Date-Sweetened Apple Spice Creamer has all the flavors of autumn and is sweetened only with dates!
Muffins are a great way to use leftover and a little too ripe fruit. Even if you don’t have any fresh fruit at all you can add in nuts and dried fruit you may have in your pantry instead. This recipe for Pear and Apple Cardamom Ginger Muffins gets me in the mood to take a long walk in my favorite sweater.
It’s not really fall unless you’re waking up to a slow cooker full of steel-cut oats. This Slow Cooker Apple Pecan Blondie Oatmeal recipe is a perfect way to start off before decorating your house for fall or making some Halloween crafts!
