We’re celebrating International Eat an Apple Day (it’s tomorrow, but we’re starting early). And this day couldn’t come any sooner because it’s becoming harder and harder to afford seeing the doctor. Of course, the plain vanilla thing to do is snack on an apple; but why not add a delicious twist just like these Instastars do? We stalked our favourite food-sta-gram handles to find the best apple-based dishes. Public Service Announcement: Prolonged viewings of these delicious treats will cause intense cravings. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Everything about this – from the icing that reminds us of snow, to the adorable cocoa stars on top – channel a festive spirit. If you ask us, this is the perfect Christmas treat to bring the entire family together at the dining table.  

Roasted Beet Salad With Apples

Smriti Mehra, the talented chef behind @parfaitindia, shows us that apples belong amongst savoury foods just as much as in desserts. Add to that the fact that apples are also a good source of fibre, and you have the perfect salad ingredient.

Deeba Rajpal, aka @passionateaboutbaking, claims that this gorgeous dish might not be the prettiest to look at, but we have to disagree with her here.

Whatever This Engineering Marvel Is

Is it a tower? Is it an optical illusion? Well, whatever it is, it has our attention. The good people over at @sugarama26 must have spent a long time putting this mind-bending dish together, but we’re glad they did. The only problem is that we wouldn’t want to plunge into this work of art with a fork!   Like this article? Also read: Hostel Diaries: 5 Super Simple Recipes You Can Make Using Only a Kettle  

Apple Pie

The good old apple pie has never looked this good. Laced with caramel and the wonderful white peach and ginger jam from @thejamlab, this dish looks like apple pie on steroids. An average medium sized apple contains about 80 calories on average – that makes it okay for us to eat this whole thing ourselves #NomNomNom  

Every Breakfast Bowl Is Better With Apples

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and how can they be wrong when it looks this good? About 25% of an apple’s volume is air, so a breakfast like this will surely make you feel light on your feet and put some pep in your step.
