Apple strudel must be one of the coziest fall recipes ever. Warm, sweet, cinnamon-y, and the perfect side for an almond milk latte, don’t you think? Sounds pretty dreamy! In this recipe we’re sharing a bite-sized version of the traditional apple dessert, miniature vegan apple strudels. The cutest and easiest dessert you’ll ever make. Ready?

Classic German Strudels — A Treat From The North

This classic dessert is a German tradition! From early August through the end of October, fresh apples start filling up the market stands, and freshly baked strudel starts filling up the air. It’s such a lovely welcome to the season when the warm summer days turn into chillier and darker evenings.

It’s common to go for an afternoon coffee and enjoy a piece of freshly baked warm apple strudels with some cream on top (also called “sahne” in German). This version is entirely plant-based and much simpler than the original version. The juicy caramelized apples soak the yummy dough and make you love fall (as if we don’t love it already)!

Use Fresh Apples — Go Apple Picking! 

You can always get your sweet crispy apples from the market or closest grocery store, but what if you found an alternative way? When apples are in abundance, it’s a great idea to enjoy a charming apple picking day at your closest apple farm. This is a great way to connect with the harvest season, celebrate fall, and make special memories.

Another fantastic idea is to get in touch with your neighbors and coordinate which trees everyone plants in their garden or backyard. This way, you will be able to share those yummy fruits once they are in season! You could plant apples and pears and have the greatest harvest to share with your friends at the end of October. Your next-door neighbor might choose nectarines and cherries and have a super plentiful feast to share during the summer! Isn’t this a great idea? Community agriculture at it’s finest. Try it!

They look like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen when the truth is you’ve been hustling for less than an hour! Psst…no one needs to know 😉

    I’m SO happy you posted this because I get super excited over anything with apples! I live in a town with at least 5 apple orchards and, starting in September, the apples are incredibly delicious, crisp and abundant! I can’t wait to make these strudels for my family. I’m going to add the crushed walnuts for sure. I can almost smell the cinnamon apple scent in my kitchen already 😀
