Who can resist the mouthwatering aroma of cinnamon and apples filling the kitchen?!  It immediately evokes a sense of the changing leaves and cooler temperatures that remind us of autumn.

We love warm, wonderful apple desserts! Here’s a simple recipe for Cinnamon Apples you’ll be sure to love:

Cinnamon Apples
Serves 2 (Recipe can be doubled)


2 large Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup (can be omitted if trying to reduce sugar)
Optional Extras: chopped nuts, raisins (omit raisins if trying to reduce sugar)


1. Core and thinly slice your apples.
2. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat, then toss in the apples and cinnamon, stirring to coat.
3. Cook the apples for about 4 – 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp. (Avoid letting the apples get mushy.)
4. If desired, drizzle the maple syrup over the top, then add either chopped nuts or raisins (or both!) and enjoy!!
