Cinnamon Baked Apple Slices
These Easy Baked Apple Slices are made with cinnamon, maple syrup, vanilla, and a touch of coconut sugar. Serve them as a side dish or as dessert with a scoop of ice cream!
- 2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot or cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 5 medium apples tart & sweet, sliced peeled or unpeeled
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 2 1/2 quart or similar sized baking dish with cooking spray or grease with vegan butter.
In a medium or large bowl, add melted vegan butter, water, ground cinnamon, coconut sugar, maple syrup, arrowroot, vanilla extract, and salt. Whisk to combine.
Add the sliced apples to the bowl. Stir to coat. Transfer apples and remaining liquid into prepared baking dish. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until apples are tender. The thinner the apple slices, the faster they will cook. Halfway through baking, remove baking dish from oven, carefully stir to coat apples, and return to oven to finish baking.
When apple are tender, remove from oven and stir once more to coat. Serve as a side dish or as dessert with vanilla ice cream or coconut whipped cream.
