Are you looking for some new Paleo recipes to try out? Check out these 15 delicious Apple Recipes from the Paleo Diet community.
Paleo food has become very popular over the last couple of years.
The Paleo diet focuses on whole foods such as meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, eggs, dairy, etc. This type of diet was originally created to mimic our ancestors’ way of eating.
Apple recipes are great because they’re versatile and simple to prepare. They also taste amazing. These 15 recipes are sure to satisfy even the pickiest eaters.
Apples are one of the easiest fruits to bake with. They don’t require much prep work beyond slicing and washing; just toss them into a bowl with some lemon juice and sugar and let them sit while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Baking apples are generally sweetened, and many people like to add spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg.
While there are many types of apples that can be used for baking, our favorite is the Granny Smith.
These apples are usually found in grocery stores, and they’re often labeled “mealy,” meaning they tend to fall apart easily once sliced.
Apple desserts are fantastic, but if you haven’t ever made a scrumptious apple cake – well, now’s your chance.
We found a recipe for an easy Instant Pot apple cake that uses applesauce to cut down on sugar and butter while still keeping it moist.
You don’t always want to spend hours making dinner, especially when you’re busy. This Instant apple crisp recipe takes just 30 minutes from start to finish.
You’ll make the filling while your Instant Pot preheats, then cook the apples in the pressure cooker.
Once cooked, you’ll mix up the topping and bake everything together.
The apples take about 15 minutes to cook, so you won’t even notice the difference between cooking them in the pressure cooker versus baking them on a stovetop.
They’ll soften up nicely and become tender, plus you’ll end up with a sweet sauce that’s delicious drizzled over vanilla ice cream (see also ‘15 Awesome Paleo Ice Cream Recipes You’ll Love‘).
This recipe takes advantage of pressure cooking to bring out the best flavor in apples.
It’s easy to make, too. Just blend together peeled and cored apples, brown sugar, spices, salt, lemon juice, water, and oil.
Put everything into a pressure cooker, turn the heat up high, and cook for 20 minutes.
Remove the lid carefully; do not press down on the fruit. Let cool completely.
Transfer mixture to a food processor and process until smooth. Pour into jars and store refrigerated for up to 2 months.
Steel-cut oats have been around since the 1800s, and while we love our oatmeal, it’s often too thick and heavy for us to enjoy every morning.
This recipe uses steel-cut oats, which are much thinner than rolled oats, making them perfect for enjoying over-easy eggs for breakfast.
Plus, the addition of apples and dried cranberries add moisture and flavor.
If you want to make oatmeal that tastes great and feels indulgent, look no further. These rich, warm oats are perfect for fall mornings.
They are hearty, flavorful, and full of nutritious ingredients like protein-packed steel-cut oats, apples, cinnamon, and dried cranberries.

If you’ve ever had a baked apple pie, you know how good they taste. But what about those times when you want something sweet but don’t feel like making a whole pie?

The key to success here is the quality of the cabbage (see also ‘15 Awesome Paleo Cabbage Recipes You Have To Try‘). We used red cabbage, which tends to be sweeter than green cabbage but feel free to swap out whichever one you prefer.
This Instant Pot apple honey pork tenderloin is one of our favorite recipes because it takes less time and effort than most traditional pork dishes.
You’ll end up with juicy bits of pork surrounded by crispy skin, and the flavor is out of this world.
The secret ingredient is cider vinegar. We use a mixture of white wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar, but feel free to play around with different kinds of vinegar.
If you don’t want to make your own apple cider vinegar, you can always buy some online.
This soup is hearty, filling, and packs a ton of flavor. If you’re looking for something different to serve up during the fall, we recommend giving this one a try.
This recipe is perfect for fall because it features two of our favorite things: apples and butternut squash.

This dish is perfect for the holidays because it combines some of our favorite foods: pork, sauerkraut, and apples.
We love pork loins, especially ones brined like this one. They are super tender and flavorful. You could even use ham hocks here for extra flavor.
There is something great about pork loin and sauerkraut – and not only on New Year’s Day. Pork and kraut are both hearty, filling foods that go well together.
We love baking apples because we feel like it gives us the opportunity to use up some of our excess produce.
They’re such a versatile ingredient; you can eat them straight out of the oven, toss them into oatmeal, stir them into yogurt, add them to muffins, pancakes, bread…the list goes on.
But what about those times when you just want something sweet, but don’t necessarily want to go to the trouble of making a pie?
The recipe for cinnamon apples is pretty straightforward – chop up some apples, sprinkle them with cinnamon, and cook them in the pressure cooker for 10 minutes.
