10 Quick and Easy Gluten-Free Apple Recipes


There is so much that you can do with apples. As with every fruit, apples are best when they are in season crispy, fresh and packed with delicious flavour and healthy nutrients.

Depending on the variety, you will find fresh in-season apples from late July through November. However, it is just as important to choose the right apple for each recipe.

This healthy, versatile fruit can be used in muffins, pancakes, desserts, bread, soups and salads. Today I am sharing recipes that will show you several ways to include apples in gluten-free recipes.

Cream Of Butternut Squash Apple Soup

This Cream Of Butternut Squash Apple Soup is comforting and creamy all at the same time. The vegan soup is made with roasted butternut squash. When we roast the squash first, this healthy fruit – yes, it is a fruit, the squash brings a distinctive flavour to the soup. Add the apples to the mix, and the soup becomes so flavourful and velvety you will have a second bowl. The apples add sweetness to the soup and complement the squash exceptionally well. The creaminess comes from coconut milk, it truly adds to the squash and the apple combo.
