Apple And Cranberry Baked Casserole Recipe

Nothing says fall like a harvest bake. The smell of apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg will fill your house, which makes this a perfect side dish or even dessert to bake before guests arrive at your home.

Apple And Cranberry Baked Casserole

The butternut squash and apples will caramelize and be even sweeter after they’re cooked. And the best part about the recipe is the ease and simplicity of tossing it all together!

Cranberries are tart and bitter and pair well with the sweet and spicy flavors of the fruit, butternut squash, and spices.

Fresh cranberries can be difficult to find. If you can track down fresh cranberries, buy a larger portion and freeze them to use later. Dried cranberries are not recommended for this recipe, and they’re often sweetened with sugar or “concentrated fruit juice” and inflammatory oils.

Serve this as a dessert with a side of whipped coconut cream.
