Here is a satisfying recipe for a tasty fruity treat that is perfect for tucking into while curled up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire on a cold winter’s evening. The cinnamon evokes a festive scent which is lovely for getting in the Christmas spirit. It can be served on its own or with a variety of foods.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pink lady apple (cored and cut into slices) [Note: Because we are using an eating, rather than cooking, apple there is no need for the abundance of sugar, or indeed any sugar, to be added as is often the case when cooking with apples]
  • A small amount of coconut oil or low-fat unsalted butter
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Method:

1. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan and add the apple

2. Add the cinnamon

3. Stir, while cooking on a medium heat, until the apple is softened and golden. (Tip: The apple is also really nice while it still has a little crisp to it, so cook for a shorter time if you’d like it that way.)

4. Serve immediately

Serving suggestions:

  • Serve as a topping for granola or porridge
  • Serve as an accompaniment to a mugcake (many healthy mugcake recipes available in my older blog posts) (e.g. my Choco-banana Mugcake)
  • Serve with some Greek yoghurt for a pleasing contrast in temperatures and textures. Serve on its own
