Have you ever tried making desserts in your instant pot? Until recently, I had mostly used mine for easy meals or meal prepping.
This recipe takes a classic baked apples dessert and converts it to be made in the instant pot. You will love how easily the apples cook to the perfect texture!
How to Make Baked Apples in the Instant Pot
What special tools will I need? You will need an instant pot. I used the Instant Pot Duo 6-Quart. I have not tested this recipe in larger/smaller pots. You will also need a round baking dish that is safe to use in an instant pot. Also a knife or apple corer and a pastry cutter or whatever you use for cutting in butter.
What apples can I use? I used gala apples. You can use any apples you like. I recommend using small/medium apples for this recipe. If you use large apples you may have to make less apples and will need to add to the cooking time.
Can I make this recipe gluten free? Or without refined sugar? This recipe can easily be converted to gluten free. I recommend using a gluten free flour blend such as Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour and make sure that your oats are labeled gluten free as well. If you want to make this recipe without refined sugar, I recommend using coconut sugar instead of the brown sugar.
Can this recipe be made in the oven? If you don’t have an instant pot, you can bake this recipe in the oven. The only ingredient that you will omit is the water that goes in the instant pot. Do everything else the same but bake at 375 F for 40-45 minutes.
Tips for Success with This Instant Pot Baked Apples Recipe
- I made this recipe with a 6-quart instant pot. If you have a larger/smaller instant pot you may need to adjust the amount of water or the time.
- Use small/medium apples if possible. I used gala apples but you can use any variety you like.
- I like the apples to be soft but not mushy when cooked. You can add a few minutes to the cook time if you want yours to be softer.
- This dessert is delicious served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream!
