Happy Apple Season!!
While the crisper days of Fall are upon us, you may be gearing up to enjoy apple picking or a bag of local apples at your grocery store.
Although there are many different apple varieties to choose from this season (approximately 7,500 apple varieties around the world, to be exact!), not all apples are best suited for baking.
When selecting apples to bake with, lean on Honeycrisp (a family favourite here!), Cortland, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Ida Reds, or good ole, McIntosh apples.
These apples hold up to the heat of baking without going mushy or becoming dehydrated. They also retain their sweet-tart flavour while balancing well with strong spices like cinnamon, ginger, or nutmeg.
If you are unsure how to "cut" the coconut oil into the flour mix, visit my Vegan Lemon Berry Scone recipe, where I have a video demonstrating how.
