Cinnamon Apple Sauté
This recipe could be used as a pie filling, a side dish, a pancake topping or my favorite idea: as a healthy desert! With NO added sugar or oil, this recipe is clean, paleo, vegan, etc. And seriously yummy and simple! (BTW, whole wheat pie crust and whole wheat pancake recipes coming soon too!) You can also sub in pears if you’d prefer!
- 4 Grannysmith Apples
- 1/2 Lemon
- 2 Tsp- 1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 Tsp- 1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
Peel the apples, quarter and slice them into thin pieces (1/4 inch thick or so). Throw these into a pan just the right size for the number of apples that you are going to be using (not too big of a pan to where they will get burnt).
Next squeeze the lemon juice all over the apples and toss apples with your hands. Add the Spices (as well as others if you desire, like cloves, ginger, allspice, etc), and toss apples again.
Set pan on burner on medium-high heat, after a minute or so stir the apples (lifting them up from the bottom making sure none of them get stuck to the pan or burnt). They will only take 5-10 minutes to cook, stirring every 30-40 seconds. After 5 minutes, you can taste one and see if it is as soft as you’d like as this is a matter of preference. For softer, go longer… otherwise plate up! And feel good about the desert you’ve just made because it is absolutely healthy!
And remember! We all have different constraints. Do the best you can with what you have and what you know, and if you do that you will continue to grow!
