Baked apples in the Instant pot are a real treat. You can use them for fruit filling for hand pies, applesauce or just to spread on toast!
Baked Apples in the Instant Pot are a great way to take fruit and transform it into something even more delicious. Like our BANANA ICE CREAM or ROASTED PEACHES, we take the normal and really make it special
Apples are in season!
Yes, they are. This time of year until Christmas, you can get the freshest, best tasting apples of the season. Now, I know you can get them all year long but I promise, the apples that are abundant at Farmers markets right now, are fresh and in season. If you don't think there is a difference, I challenge you to test it for yourself.
Baked Apples, the Easy Way.
Now, I love a whole baked apple, slow cooked in the oven with a dollop of vanilla ice cream but sometimes it's just too hard to wait. So here is an easy recipe to have a cheater of sorts right in your Instant Pot. We love using our Electric Pressure cooker to make tasks like these easier. Want another great IP recipe?

- Apples, Peeled, cored and sliced
- Raw Organic Honey
- Maple Syrup
See recipe card for quantities.
How to Make Them
Peel and core your apples. I use a handy dandy apple corer that both cores and slices. For this recipe, I still slice my apples slightly thinner than the corer tool does so they will cook down quick.
Add the apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, maple syrup and water to the IP and stir well to coat all of the apples. Set to manual or pressure cook for 4 minutes. When it beeps, turn it off and QR(quick release). Stir and use whatever way your heart desires.
Tips and Tricks
Yes! Any fruit that has the same texture as apples can withstand this cooking process. Pears are delicious this way!
Yes. The spices we use are just a suggestion and all are optional. I also challenge you to think of other spices to use. Allspice, cardamom and chili powder are also great ideas.
The natural sugars found in apples are as pure sugar as it gets. The addition of the maple syrup and honey are for a tad more sweetness. To make it healthier, you can omit them completely or opt for lower sugar options like sugar free maple syrup and a sugar substitute like swerve instead of honey.
How to Store Them
They keep well in an airtight container for about a week. You can also freeze them and they will keep for about a month.
Easy, Easy Easy.
Now that was fast! These are good right by themselves with a little ice cream. Three apples makes enough to make a small tarte or pie or just to have for a simple weeknight supper dessert. You can double this recipe for more and store in an airtight container in the fridge. This is also good pureed for applesauce to be eaten or use as a sugar substitute in cakes and baking. However you slice it, these Baked Apples in the Instant Pot are so quick and easy you will keep them on hand all of the time. Enjoy!
