What To Serve With Baked Cinnamon Apples

These baked apples are soft, delicious, and bursting with flavor from the cinnamon and raisins! They are delicious to eat all on their own, but they can be served with other things as well.

These baked cinnamon apples would be amazing if served with some:

  • Rich caramel
  • Whipped cream
  • Tahini
  • Peanut butter

If you are feeling extra decadent, you could even eat these apples with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream! This creates the perfect combination of warm and fresh apples with rich and cold ice cream.

You could also eat these apples with a bit of thick vanilla yogurt for a healthier option than ice cream. It is almost just as good!
