Cinnamon Baked Apples are so easy to make and your house will smell amazing! 


  • 4 large apples
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dried apple slices chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons monk sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup apple cider


  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place a pie dish on top.
  2. Wash the apples and slice the tops off of the apples, about 1/2″
  3. Core the apples leaving about 1/2″ at the bottom (avoid going all the way through).
  4. Peel about 1/4″ around the top of each apple and rub the lemon on the exposed part.
  5. Place the apples in the pie dish and fill with the chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, a little honey, cubed butter, and then cover with the apple tops that you cut off. They may topple a little, that’s okay.
  6. Squeeze the lemon all over and then place it in the dish next to the apples.  
  7. Add the apple peels, the apple cider, and drizzle with a little more honey at the bottom of the dish.
  8. Bake in a 375º oven for 70 minutes. (Check to see if done by inserting a fork, depending on the size of your apples, it may take a little longer)
  9. Remove the tops, serve on saucers or shallow bowls, and top with a little whipped cream and a little more cinnamon.


I sometimes add a drop of Cinnamon Vitality essential oil in each core to boost flavor.
