Apple Pie Bites


Okay you guys, I have a super simple recipe that my kids and me have been eating all week. Who doesn't love the filling in apple pies and strudels, amiright?? Sometimes, I find myself picking apart my pies and only eating the filling. So I thought, what if I only made the filling so I could add it to other desserts, like ice cream, or eat it plain? I made my usual filling recipe with a couple modifications and my Apple Pie Bites were born. Once my one year old started asking for them and thinking they were fruit snacks, I knew I had something special... and kind of addicting.

What you need:
  • 2 large apples
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 drops almond extract or 1/4 tsp vanilla extract *optional 
What you'll do:
  • Cut the apples into mini cubes and place into a mixing bowl.
  • Add brown sugar, cinnamon and extract, mixing until all the apple pieces are coated.
  • Place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, tossing the apples every 10 minutes or so. 
  • Remove from oven and let sit for 20 minutes if eating alone, or add to ice cream or other desserts while still warm. 
  • Enjoy!

  3. Can you say DELICIOUS? Oh my goodness, I don't think these would last very long in my house. My husband is a big apple lover and so am I! The only thing is that we tend to like different kinds. I'm more into Pink Lady and Jazz while he likes Red Delicious.

  10. Love this! I make something similar for my kids often because they never eat the crust. My favorite part of apple pie is the inside too. :)
