Please give Anna from Rules of Dieting a warm welcome to the site today! She is stopping by to share a delicious (and uber-simple) recipe perfect for fall! If you love apples, this is a must-try! ~Jessica
If you like apples, you will love this recipe. 🙂 The other day I bought some apples as I was keen to create a snack that was easy, quick, and healthy. After some thinking, I came up with a super easy recipe… Simply coat the apple wedges with ginger and bake them.
I have never done this before, so I didn’t know what to expect.
Well, it turned out amazing! I love how the ginger cuts through the sweetness of the apples. Perfect balances of awesome flavors! You can also add these apple wedges to yogurt, porridge, as a topping for a cake, etc.
I am sure many of you know that ginger is very healthy. It is one of those spices I call a “super spice”. Here are some of the health benefits:
- reduces pain and inflammation
- fights numerous types of cancer, like ovarian, colon, etc.
- helps with improving your immune system
- helps with absorbing many essential nutrients
- a great remedy for morning sickness
- improves circulation
- and many many others!
So… are you going to incorporate more ginger to your diet? I add it to my green tea, porridge, stir-fries, baked apples, etc. The possibilities are endless!

- Wash the apples and slice them into thin wedges. You can peel the apples if you wish, but I keep the skin on (as it is super yummy and full of nutrients). Place the wedges in a baking tray, sprinkle ground ginger, cinnamon, and salt on the top and gently mix the ginger in with your hands.
- Dollop your butter or ghee onto the top of the wedges.
- Place the tray in the preheated oven (180 degrees) for about 20 minutes. Check the apples after 10 minutes, mix them around with a spatula and place them back in the oven.
- Take them out of the oven once they soften up and start to brown up.
- Leave it to chill before serving. You can top with coconut whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or just serve plain!
- Don't they taste delicious? If you prefer a stronger flavor, add more ginger next time.
