When the kids are sorting through their stashes of riches from the neighborhood door knocking, it’s time for you to sneak yourself into the kitchen for a fall treat of your own. (Fine.

Topped with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream or gelato, these baked apples will wow a crowd with their apple spice deliciousness.

These baked apples combine all of the greatest things of fall in one adorably delicious container: fresh, local apples, brown sugary goodness, and, of course, a seasonal favorite Way Better Snacks Gingersnap chips. Not a baker? No problem. This dessert makes a baking novice look like a genius in the kitchen. Measurements are forgiving and from start to finish, you will be eating within an hour.

The chips not only add an awesome crunch to the crumble topping, they also pack in all of the traditional spices of an apple crisp. Spicy cinnamon and sweet molasses are the perfect pairing for this fruity treat.

Simple ingredients come together in minutes for these easy and delicious baked apples. The perfect seasonal dessert for entertaining!

The crunch of tortilla chips is the perfect stand-in for the traditional oats used in your family’s apple crisp recipe. While we used white flour in this recipe, the tortilla chips have the added benefit of easily making these a gluten free treat for friends and family. Swap out the flour for your favorite gluten-free substitute, and you’re good-to-go.

Looking for a dairy free alternative? Easy peasy. Coconut oil is the perfect swap for butter, adding the richness and decadence that these baked goodies crave. Whether you’re looking for a Halloween treat or the perfect, stress-free dessert for any holiday this season, these baked apples will delight you and your friends. They are everything nice: Apple Cinnamon Spice.

Baked Apples


6 Apples (we used Jonagold)

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup brown sugar

For the crumble topping:

1/2 cup Gingersnap tortilla chips (crushed)

1/2 cup flour

1/3 cup brown sugar

4 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into chunks


Preheat the oven to 400.

Prepare your crumble topping by combining the crushed chips, flour, and brown sugar in a small bowl. With your hands, mix in the chilled butter cubes until a crumbly consistency. Set aside while you prep the apples.

Two of the apples will add to the stuffed apple goodness of your crisps. Peel those two apples and cut into chunks for cooking. Cut the tops off of the remaining 4 apples and carefully scoop out most of the apples’ centers. You want to leave about a half inch on all sides to keep your apple sturdy in the oven. Avoiding the tough core and seeds, save the remaining apple for cooking.

Core the apples in preparation for stuffing. Leave about a half an inch on all sides.

Add 4 tablespoons of butter, apple chunks, and 1/3 cup of brown sugar to a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir frequently and let cook for 5-7 minutes until the apples begin to soften. Remove from heat.

Setup the four hollowed out apples in a shallow baking dish and fill with the cooked apple. Top generously with crumble topping and pop into the oven, uncovered for 18-20 minutes until cooked through and apple has softened.

Serve warm from the oven with a scoop of your favorite ice cream or gelato and a drizzle of caramel sauce (if you’re feeling fancy!).

It's just like apple crisp: but tucked right back into the delicious and juicy fresh apple.
