This was my first attempt at homemade applesauce and I was amazed at how easy it is to make - this recipe from Martha Stewart has only a few ingredients! I forgot to peel the apples and realized it after all the apples were chopped up, so I kept the skins on and ended up with pink applesauce - a win in my book. Next time, I'll play around with more flavors - ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, pumpkin spice... so many possibilities.
Baked apples have got to be the easiest thing in the world - just cut in half, get the core out, then bake! I did love this recipe, though, for its granola-like baked topping. We finished ours off with a scoop of Trader Joe's frozen Greek yogurt, a dash of cinnamon, and a drizzle of real maple syrup.
My most adventurous undertaking was these vegan apple oat tartlets. I have been so hesitant to make something of this sort, though I had almost everything in our cupboard because I've been attempting to make a healthy dessert for so long. I hesitantly pulled out the food processor that I had never used (Seriously. I had never used it.), and found out how easy it actually is to process sunflower seeds and oats into a flour of sorts! Taras and I loved these and there's not one bad-for-you thing in them. It's a healthy snack masked as a deceiving dessert.
