Let’s chat about healthy apple breakfast recipes! This post was originally published in the Fall after a weekend of apple picking. I found myself with a surplus of apples and started looking for some quick and easy ways to use them up. Apples are a great addition to pretty much any meal, any time of day.
I focused on breakfast ideas with apples because breakfast is often the meal my kids eat best and I’m always looking for new healthy options for them. So why not add some apple breakfast ideas to the rotation, right?!
If you’re looking beyond breakfast, here are 15 Healthy Recipes Using Apples for lunch, dinner snack time and even dessert!
In addition to being naturally sweet, apples are a great source of fiber if you leave the skin on! Fiber helps keep you full and satisfied, especially when paired with protein and/or healthy fats!
All of these recipes have me drooling and I plan to work my way through the list. Join me? Who doesn’t need more healthy apple recipes for breakfast?

I love that you did apples instead of pumpkin because I’ve been crushing on them hardcore lately. I think homemade applesauce is where most of my apples go, but I’ve been loving them in smoothies as well. Thanks for including my muffins, lady!
