25 Healthy Apple Recipes

Check out this list of 25 delicious and healthy apple recipes! There are breakfast, lunch/dinner and dessert options so everyone is bound to love something!

Growing up in Vermont, apples were a staple in our household. We would go apple picking every year, we made homemade applesauce, snacked on apples. It was apples, apples, apples. And they're still one of my favorite fall foods!

Since apples are in season right now and apple seems to be sneaking its way into my daily routine, I wanted to share some healthy apple recipes with you to give you some fun new ways to use up those big bags of apples you're probably seeing at the grocery store. While I do love a good sliced apple and peanut butter, there's so much more that you can do with these healthy little fruits.

So today I've rounded up 25 of my absolute favorite healthy apple recipes for you! We've got breakfast, lunch/dinner and dessert recipes so you can enjoy apples at any time of the day. Many of these recipes are from SQ, but I've also included recipes from some of my favorite bloggers.

There's sure to be something for everyone on this list! Don't forget to pin this post so that you can come back to this list over and over again!
