Tis' the month we celebrate all things apples! Apples are finally in season, and there are so many tasty varieties to try! Our local farmer's market has an apple vendor in the fall, and they have at least ten different organic heirloom apples each week.
Why These Recipes Are Great:
- If you love apples, these gluten free apple recipes are not only easy to make, but they taste so good friends and family will never know they are gluten free!
- Each recipe comes with simple step-by-step directions.
- I use all simple, easy-to-find ingredients. You can find them all at your local grocery store.
- All of these recipes are freezable, so you can easily make a double batch and freeze any extras.
When I was young, our family used to go apple picking, filling up bags of crisp apples. When we left, I remember always having a stomach ache from eating too many apples!
Now that we are in the California Bay Area, there really isn't a close-by place to go apple picking. We rely on one of our favorite local farmer's market vendors to keep our fruit basket full!
If you are new to gluten free baking, you will want to look at my Gluten Free Pantry Guide to know how to use the gluten free ingredients in these recipes.
What Are The Best Apples for Baking?
There are so many great apple varieties, like the Gravenstein apples in the photo above! I tend to use more tart apples in my gluten free baking. Here are some good types of apples to try:
- Granny Smith
- Pink Lady
