Roasted Orange Slices


Alright. Stick with me on this one.

I’m trying to eat less sugary things. Fruit doesn’t count. I’m talking cakes, cookies, candy, you know.


Not because it’s a new year (although, if I’m honest, those Christmas cookie exchanges might have had something to do with the decision), and not because I want to lose weight. Sort of because my teeth are awful and always hurt. But mostly, I just feel like reigning in my crazy sweet tooth that seems to take over at every meal. I don’t know..ask me in a week. I may have changed my mind.


But until then. I roasted some oranges.

Simple. Easy. Cheap. Sweet. Healthy. Delicious.

(oh, and on the teeth subject…my dentist told me last year that I needed to eat less citrus. So, this is actually not helping that situation AT ALL)


Roasted Orange Slices

  • 2-3 oranges, sliced (like your mom used to do at halftime for soccer games)
  • 1 T honey
  • sprinkling of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Drizzle honey over oranges and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roast for 20 minutes, or until they look puffy and juice and magnificent.

    Yum! This sounds delicious! I am going to make some! I am drinking this god awful fertility tea and I feel like these would be a great chaser! Ha!

  2. Nicole @ Just Live It:

    I probably could look at photo’s of oranges all day, because they’re that pretty! :) And this recipe sounds so delish! I really will be trying it soon!!

  3. Shira:

    Oranges are so good this time of year… and my dentist has told me for a few years to eat less fruit and especially sitrus, I have to use special toothpaste…? I have a bad sweet tooth too… :)

  4. Lindsay's List:

    you so smart.

  5. Bev @ Bev Cooks:

    This is bad to the BONE. Yum.

  6. Tamara:

    That is something I’d never have thought of… it looks and sounds amazing! Thanks, Katie! <3

  7. Cait:

    Oooh I love this idea!! I never would have thought to do that…but I love that you did for me so I didn’t have to :)

    Hope your teeth feel better – hurting teeth are THE WORST! Maybe it’s just sympathy teething for A? ;)

  8. Katie:

    Haha, hopefully! They are just really sensitive…nothing too terrible. But when I eat sugar, it’s the worst, they just ache. Maybe it’s my bodies way of telling me to eat more vegetables.

    Cinnamon on everything. SO good.

    Apparently I can’t form complete sentences today.

  11. Heather @ Heather's Dish:

    This is sort of the most genius thing ever. Do you eat the skin too?

  12. Katie:

    I didn’t…but you could sure give it a shot!

  13. Ally's Sweet & Savory Eats:

    Ugh. You just reminded me I need to make a dentist appointment.

    I’m most impressed by the way you cute those oranges! Slicing citrus is one of those “adult” things I’m still waiting to figure out.

  16. Shaunna@mamas13minutemile:

    I never think of these simple pleasures. YUM!!!!!

  17. Ashley:

    Whoa. Never even new this was a possibility!!! Love that we both posted orange things today. :)

  18. Diana:

    I had never thought of anything even remotely similar to this but it looks AMAZING. Luckily I need to go to the market tonight anyway – for sure picking up some oranges, YUMMO!

  19. Katie @ Blonde Ambition:

    What the what! So interesting! I mean if you can grill peaches, you can roast oranges, right??

  20. Danica @ It's Progression:

    interesting! I’m trying to eat less sweets too (chocolate, baked goods, etc.), but because of those holiday treats. Fruit is definitely on the okay list though.

  21. Amber @ Mommy's Me Time:

    What a brilliant idea! I have lots of oranges in my fridge right now that I bought through a fundraiser and will definitely be roasting some of them now! Thanks for the idea!
