Salted Caramel Apple Tart
Isn’t this just divine!
It looks like it was bought in a store, but this is so easy to make a home. Just a handful of ingredients and about 35 minutes cook-time is all you need. For a gift? Make it for yourself first, and second!
Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Squares
A guilt free snack!
These are not overly sweet, but they are filled with goodness. Great ingredients such as rolled oats, cinnamon, vanilla and so on. What more could you ask for?
Apple Cider Green Beans
We may be stretching it a bit here, but the recipe was so good we simply couldn’t leave it out.
Green beans that are so much more than just a side dish. Yes, the only apple here comes from the cider vinegar but that’s okay. Delicious and good for you!
Parsnip and Apple Soup with Black Lentils and Vegetable Crisps
I simply didn’t realize how well parsnips and apples go together. If you’re into food, it doesn’t take much imagination to realize this is a trick we missed!
Thanks to Lauren, we have this delicious soup. It’s wholesome, satisfying and if you go for the roasted vegetable crisps and lentils, you have an unforgettable meal.
Apple Butternut Squash Soup
As the colder times of year approaches, recipes like this is what we want!
You’re looking at just 5 minutes prep time and 10 minutes cooking. Wholesome, savory yet a hint of sweetness from the medjool dates.
If you have a high-powered blender like a Vitamix, throw all the ingredients in and the blender will even heat it up!
Fennel Apple Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
Now, this is something really special. It doesn’t take any effort to achieve this fancy presentation, although obviously it doesn’t really matter.
If you’re looking to impress, this is a guaranteed hit. Unique, classy, super healthy and easy to make.
This is so good, it’s almost too delicious!
I mean, is it better to just go all out and eat like six of these or make a larger version? I guess the real question is, will anyone be looking?
Apple and Fennel Salad with Phyllo Tapenade Cigars
Melissa has done such a great job on this recipe!
Something that looks so complicated that anyone would assume it was store-bought. But no, not only can you make this, but it’s super easy as well. Totally delicious!
Apple Quinoa Salad with Tahini Maple Dressing
I love a hearty cold salad. It’s nice to have one on hand in my fridge at all times. It makes a great snack and can curb mid-day cravings better than any chips and dip can.
Somehow simple and complex at the same time, but easy to put together in a hurry. The crunchy and tender combination is satisfying to your mouth and your belly.
This salad is a sweet-tart taste explosion and will do more than fill a void. Bring this dish to your next potluck and be a star!
Baked Apple Cider Donuts
Look, whether we admit it or not, we all love donuts. Yet, we also know they’re often deep-fried balls of dough, so we avoid them. Well, a new dawn has broken!
These puppies are baked! There’s nothing more to say. Fantastic donuts that are sugar and oil free! There’s even a gluten-free option as well. Turn your oven on, quick!
Peanut Butter Apple Oats Jar
I’m not sure whether to call this a great breakfast or a great snack, either way the word ‘great’ is definitely what it is!
About half a dozen ingredients is all you need. Follow the instructions and infuse overnight to create this raw vegan delight. Hey, that rhymes!
Crockpot Apple Butter
I love this old school recipe! If you’ve never had apple butter before, this is the place to start.
How many ingredients? Just four. Delicious served on bread or as a sauce over your favorite vegan ice cream. This is definitely a must!
Apple Butter Filled Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts
As if cinnamon Sugar donuts weren’t great enough, these are filled with apple butter and are heaven on earth!
There’s a little prep time with this but such beauties don’t make themselves. Make these in the morning and eat on the same day as they may go a little hard if left for a day or two. Stunningly delicious!
Easy Stovetop Apple Butter
Another great apple butter recipe!
Just 10 minutes to prep and the rest is cooking. You’re looking at just five ingredients to make this delicious perfectly sweet and tart spread.
All the sugar comes from the fruit, nothing artificial is added!
If you love muffins, then you’re going to love these!
These are so moist and soft, every mouthful bursting with flavor of cinnamon, hint of sweetness and, of course, apple. Love the chunks!
Wild Rice Salad with Apple and Pomegranate
Apples are great to have on salads as they add sweetness and the perfect texture.
This great snack is perfect to have on the side of the plate or make yourself a bowl and eat on its own, it’s that good!
Red Wine Poached Apple Jam
Real old school jam (or jelly!)
I love how simple this recipe is, roast the apples with the red wine following the instructions then combine in a food processor with the rest of ingredients.
Refrigerate before serving, if you can wait that long!
Apple Cinnamon Bars
Don’t these just look incredible! Would you believe they are made with chickpeas (garbanzo beans)!
Protein packed and bursting with flavor, these bars get the sweetness from the fruit and medjool dates. Blend and bake and you’re set to go. Yummy!
Apple Pie Bread
This recipe is free from refined sugar and I love how the author describes it; “This bread has apples and is vegan and refined sugar-free, so, it’s basically a salad”!
I love sweet bread, and this is one of the best. Applesauce, maple syrup and delicious apple pie spice are just a few of ingredients that make this wonderful treat.
This is a desert, no doubt about it. Although it’s so good, would it be bad to have it on its own? Like, an entrée?
The recipe page has everything you need, great photos and super easy instructions. Which non-dairy flavor ice cream will you serve with it?
Ginger Apple Crostata
If you’ve never made a crostata before, you’ve definitely been missing out!
Don’t be daunted by the delicious crust, the recipe page has all you need and will guide you every step of the way. Absolutely luscious!
If you’re into super foods or you’re looking at incorporating more raw food, this is the one for you.
Nothing but nature’s goodness in these babies! Guilt free are the magic words!

This is one of those super yummy dishes you may see in a fancy hotel for breakfast.
Pure ingredients such as walnuts, apples, ginger and more. A real treat and very special indeed.
I bet the first thing you’re thinking when you see the photo is, ‘I can’t do that!’ Well, you can!
Perfect for a party or any type of celebration. You’ll be making these flowers like a pro in no time. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Best of all, they’re yummy!
Apple Cranberry Sauce
I know, I know. Why make this at home when you can just buy a jar from the store? Answer: wait until you taste it.
Store-bought Cranberry sauce is extremely convenient and certainly will do at short notice. But on those special occasions when you want to go that extra mile, look no further.
Apple Spice Compote
This makes the best compote ever!
One of the easiest dishes of this type I have seen, it’s so simple and best of all, so delicious. On pancakes, on toast or just straight up. How will you eat yours?

I never knew apples and lentils go so well together!
This may look complicated, but you must check it out. It’s so easy and because of the lentils, super satisfying. Incredibly healthy and bursting with flavor.

It’s both savory and sweet and there’s the slightest hint of spice in every bite. Packed with protein and contains no added sugar or oil. Perfect!
Apple Basil Smoothie
The secret to a great smoothie is a great recipe.

You just need a handful of great recipes and you’re good to go. This one should be on your list!
Incredibly Easy Apple Tarte Tatin
This isn’t just incredibly easy, this is incredibly tasty as well!

A vegan mac and cheese with plant-based sausage is a hearty dish. The apple adds freshness as well as a wonderful texture. You’re going to love it!
Raspberry and Apple Vanilla Breakfast Compote
Sometimes if you’re looking for a super healthy breakfast, you’re still left a little hungry after. Not with this!
Beautifully fruity, literally bursting with flavor and you can taste the ginger and hint of coconut sugar in every mouthful.
That’s right, use sliced apples instead of nachos. If this sounds boring, you need to check the recipe because it’s not!
Super healthy and if you have a sweet tooth, this has got your name all over it!
Rustic Raw Apple Cream Tartlets
These raw tartlets are not only visually appealing, they also taste amazing. You won’t believe these little treats are actually good for you!
