Fall is in full swing and although pumpkin is usually the main attraction, I love apples too (in fact, I think I prefer it!). I know we can get it year-round but there’s just something about apples in the fall, eh?

So today, apples are in the spotlight in our quarterly round-up. I’m featuring the best, the tastiest, the most scrumptious apple recipes from some of my favourite food bloggers.

What can you make out of apples?

So what can you make out of apples anyway? A lot. Seriously. And I’m not just talking about apple pies (although I have all the apple pie and tart recipes you will ever need here too).

Some of my personal dessert favourites from the blog include:

And at Christmastime, we usually have this Easy Refreshing Apple Buko Salad on the table:

But there’s so much more to discover! Explore the whole wide world of apples below.

Apple Recipes for Breakfast

Apples are great for breakfast. Try this Apple Crumble Coffee Cake (with video):

Or pick a favourite from these delicious apple cakes and breads (cake for breakfast, how great is that?):

Apple oats and muffins are a great way to start the day too:

And can we take a moment to thank the heavens for the deliciousness that is apple butter?

Apple Recipes for Lunch and Dinner

For lunch or dinner, this Apple Bulgur Pilaf with Turkey and Walnuts is a great, one-pan option.

These cookies and bites are perfect for lunch boxes as well:

Apple Desserts

Let’s face it though. Desserts are where apples shine. Just look at these two:

Apple Pies and Tarts

And would it really be a proper apple round-up without apple pie and tart? (No, it would not.) Let’s start with these exquisite tarts:

Then we can bake good old fashioned apple pie the way mom made it.

You can even make apple hand pies so you don’t have to share!

Whatever you end up making, I’m sure it will be delicious. And healthy. They don’t say an apple a day for nothing!

Enjoy fall and I hope you get your fill of wonderful apples. Happy apple season!

This is a fantastic collection of apple recipes. It's a good thing that apple season lasts a long time so that I can make as many of these delicious recipes as I can. The Baked Apple Turon With Salted Caramel Sauce has got to be my first.

There are so many excellent recipes to try! I can't wait to try the savory ones myself. We often eat pork and apples together so I'll have to try some of those recipes. Of course the sweets ones look outstanding too!

What an amazing round-up of apple recipes. I love apple season because the options are so many from savory to sweet. My favorite is always apple cakes and strudels this time of the year.
