Fall Recipe: Apple and Sweet Potato Bake

No matter what the temperature is outside, if the pumpkin patches are open, that’s enough for us to get into the fall spirit! It’s a special time of year that calls for cozy dishes that encapsulate the autumn feeling.

This year for our fall recipe we are sharing an Apple and Sweet Potato Bake dessert that we think will capture the season with ingredients such as brown sugar and nutmeg. Besides the great taste, this warm dish is perfect as the weather gets cooler. To top it all off, it includes both a fruit and a vegetable to make it a healthier dessert option!

We know with the current inflation, eating on a budget, especially as the holiday season approaches, is even more important. So, before we get to the recipe, we also want to share a tip that relates to this recipe: Buy in season.

Both apples and sweet potatoes are in season right now, with their prime harvesting season in fall to early winter, making this recipe ideal. Not only is seasonal produce less expensive when in season, it is tastier as well! You can find more tips for healthy eating on a budget 這裡.

On to the recipe – we hope you enjoy!
