Fall’s status as an unofficial time to reset isn’t due to just the new moon and back-to-business productivity goals; it’s also when Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, takes place.

To celebrate this holiday, it’s traditional to eat apples dipped in honey (yum!) to symbolize a sweet start to the New Year. The meaningful sentiment (attached to a delicious treat, no less) is a great, positive mindfulness exercise, regardless of whether you observe Rosh Hashanah.

Tonight’s sundown marks the beginning of the holiday, which lasts until sundown on September 22, so now’s the perfect time to get your fill of the antioxidant-rich fruit. Below is a roundup of healthy and tasty recipes (including vegan, gluten-free and Paleo options) to get your apple juices flowing.

Keep scrolling to check out 5 apple-packed recipes.

A homemade apple butter is a great spread to keep out on the holiday table (especially with no sugars added!). Smear on any and all vessels—apples, Paleo crackers, banana bread—really anything.

2. Apple Pear Cake

An apple pear cake is already a crowd-pleaser, but this recipe is especially fitting for the Rosh Hashanah festivities, as it uses honey instead of sugar.
