The Best Treats for Autumn

Posted by

Fall is a wonderful time of year. It is a time to embrace the changing colors of the leaves, spend crisp evenings bundled up by a bonfire and the treats are composed of wonderful caramel apples dipped in sprinkles, peanuts, crushed cookies and everything imaginable flavored with pumpkin spice.

Fall lovers can enjoy the refreshing taste of the sweet, freshly-picked apple from local orchards and the uniquely fall taste of pumpkin spiced with cinnamon, nut meg and ginger.

Both of these Fall inspired snacks are healthy and good for you to enjoy. Apples provide our bodies with lasting energy, plenty of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants while pumpkins filled with hardy fiber, potassium, and vitamin C, which supports your overall heart health.

Below, try some of our yummy fall favorite recipes that are both good for you and taste great!

Samoa Apple Slices from the kitchen of Delish

Ingredients

Instructions

1. Slice apples into 1/4"-thick slices. Use a small biscuit cutter or melon baller to remove

the core from the apples. Set aside.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, add caramel and coconut flakes, stirring to combine. Spoon

caramel-coconut mixture onto each apple slice.

3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and butter. Microwave in 30-

second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted. Drizzle melted chocolate on

apple slices and serve.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies by The Kitchn

Ingredients

Instructions

1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter for 45 seconds. (This is just enough time to liquefy most of the butter, but not heat it.) Stir with a fork to finish melting. (If you don’t have a microwave, melt on the stovetop until almost melted, but not quite. Remove from heat and continue stirring to cool.)

2. Combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a large bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth. Add the pumpkin purée, egg, and vanilla, and stir until blended. Add the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, and mix until almost combined, with a little bit of flour still visible. Fold in the chocolate chunks.

3. Grab a handful of dough (approximately 3 1/2 ounces) and place on a large plate or sheet pan; the mounds should be tall. (You should get 8 or 9 dough balls.) Freeze for 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.

4. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Transfer half of the dough balls to the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches around each one. Bake the cookies for 16 to 20 minutes, until light golden-brown, but still a little soft-looking on top (err on the side of underdone; do not overcook, as the cookies will continue cooking while cooling.) Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack or large platter for another 4 hours to allow the cookies to completely set and develop their flavors. Repeat with the remaining dough.

Tips

These cookies keep beautifully in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
