20 Apple Cinnamon Recipes to Try This Fall
Cozy up with one of our favorite apple cinnamon recipes this fall. From warming breads and breakfasts (like this Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread and this Cinnamon Apple Stuffed French Toast) to autumnal desserts (you can't go wrong with a classic spiced Apple Pie, but this Cinnamon Roulade with Roasted Apple-Cream Cheese Filling is seriously impressive). Whether you're looking for something indulgent (Apple Cider Sangria, anyone?) or wholesome (this Apple Quinoa Bowl with Cinnamon Ricotta is perfect for healthy eaters), you'll find a new favorite in our collection of apple cinnamon recipes.
Apple Cinnamon Bread
Besides being simple enough to whip up on a moments notice, as it bakes, this easy apple cinnamon bread puts off the kind of warming, buttery, spiced aromas that usher in all the fall feels. And given just how well a warm slice pairs with a cup of coffee, don’t be surprised if you find yourself making a loaf of apple cinnamon bread on a weekly basis throughout the season.
Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread
For a special breakfast that’s sure to impress, this easy Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread is a must. Not only is it a looker, but every fluffy crevice and golden fold of this loaf is smattered with irresistibly buttery, apple and cinnamon-brown sugar goodness.
Apple Quinoa Bowl with Cinnamon Ricotta
Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie
Store-bought refrigerated cinnamon rolls are the perfect crust for this most American of desserts. Think that's a little too weird? You add cinnamon to your apple pie, don't you? It’s not that out there.
Air-Fried Cinnamon Apple Chips With Almond Yogurt Dip
On the hunt for a treat that satisfies your sweet tooth without busting your diet? Pack these cinnamon-laced apple chips in your lunch bag. Apples deliver natural sweetness and a handsome amount of fiber, making them a smart choice for any diet, and the air fryer transforms them into something altogether more delicious.
Cinnamon-Apple Dutch Baby
These incredibly tender, jelly-filled doughnuts are a perfect treat for breakfast/brunch, snack time, or dessert. Opting for using a store-bought hot roll mix (we particularly like Pillsbury brand’s) saves a little bit of labor, but keeps this traditional sweet treat feeling homemade.
Dessert Spaghetti Squash with Apples, Walnuts, and Cinnamon Goat Cheese
While a sweet spaghetti squash might sound a little unconventional, it's quite a treat. Accompanied by a warm, buttery cinnamon apple mixture, this squash is packed with festive fall flavors. The simple goat cheese and Greek yogurt mixture is the perfect, creamy component to finish it all off, and you're going to be licking the spoon with this light and healthy topper.
Apple Chips with Ancho Chile Cinnamon Sugar
Put delicious, in-season sweet apples to good use with this healthy snack with a kick. For a more kid-friendly version, leave out the Ancho chile powder. You can use a sharp knife if you don't have a mandoline, but your slices won't be quite as even.
Cinnamon Roulade with Roasted Apple-Cream Cheese Filling
The secret to making a roulade: Line your baking pan with parchment paper. Use the paper as a guide to roll the cake when it is still slightly warm. After the cake has cooled, unroll it, add the filling, and reroll it back into a spiral. Serve this rich, earthy cake as a brunch option instead of the usual coffee cake or as the perfect ending to a fall meal.
Cinnamon-Apple Stuffed French Toast
Your breakfast just got so much cozier. Our easy, 6-minute filling is perfect for this autumn-inspired French toast recipe.
Warm Cinnamon Apples
These simple brown sugar-sweetened fruit slices are great served at breakfast, make for a warm and tasty side dish (especially for kiddos), are the ideal flavor complement spooned over pork chops or a pork loin, and are an amazing seasonal addition to a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
This 5-star cinnamon apple cake is one of our best-ever recipes and can be served as dessert or a breakfast coffee cake. The cream cheese in the batter gives the cake lots of moisture, while the cinnamon sugar topping is dense and crumbly. The cake is best warm out of the oven, and will keep for a week after you've baked it. Toss in walnuts or pecans to the batter for an added nutty crunch.
Apple Cider Sangria
Our Apple Cider Sangria has just the right amount of booze, and it’s super simple to put together, making it the perfect fall cocktail. Apples are seasonal and delicious, and they're even better when soaked in the sangria for several hours. The color is golden and clear, and it’s lovely in the glass with ice cubes and fruit slices—but it’s also gorgeous in a punch bowl for a party. Best of all, this gets better the longer it sits, since it gives the fruit and booze more time to intermingle. This Apple Cider Sangria is even classy enough to serve for Thanksgiving with appetizers or afternoon snacks before the big meal.

Old-Fashioned Apple Pie
When Courtney Page Ferrell set out to find her grandmother’s long-lost apple pie recipe, she got much more than she bargained for. The Virginia-based creative consultant and sought-after speaker put up ‘Lost Pie’ signs around her neighborhood (and other cities, when she was traveling) and received a slew of recipes and stories from other apple pie lovers. This delicious double crust version is the closest she came to her grandmother’s pie.
Easy Apple Cobbler
Usher in the fall season with a warm pan of (almost too) easy apple cobbler. For this simple and delicious apple dessert, peeling and slicing the fruit will be the bulk of your workload. The combination of brown sugar and apples yields an exceptionally gooey-rich filling that was made to team up with a buttery, golden crust and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Instant Pot Apple Sauce
Is there any food more wholesome than homemade applesauce? Doubt it. Thankfully, wholesome comes quick and easy with this Instant Pot Apple Sauce.
Apple Streusel Muffins with Maple Drizzle
For these irresistible whole-grain goodies, it's all about the drizzle.
Cinnamon-Cider Candied Apples
Wash apples well to remove any waxy coating, and dry thoroughly before dipping them. Work quickly, but if the syrup begins to set, you can reheat it over low heat to liquefy.
Apple Spice Bundt Cake with Cider Glaze
Don't be afraid to go 100% whole-grain with desserts; we use all spelt flour here with amazing results. The nutty flour boosts the taste of the butter, spices, and vanilla, unlike all-purpose flour, whose bland nature would dilute those flavors. Be sure to weigh the flour for accuracy; using too much will make the cake dry.
