Heart Healthy Cinnamon Apples
Heart Healthy Cinnamon Apples

Ingredients

  • 3 large apples, gala or granny smith

  • 2 tsp cinnamon (I like using Frontier)

  • 1 tbsp of Truvia or

  • 2 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup water (adjust accordingly, apple size affects this)


Instructions

  1. Slice up the apples on a cutting board. I went with larger slices, but dicing works as well.

  2. Pour water in a small pot and drop the apples in. Begin cooking on medium heat.

  3. Add cinnamon and 1 tbsp. of sweetener. Stir everything together so the cinnamon and sweetener coats all of the apples. Lid the pot and let them cook on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, checking in and stirring every 5 minutes are so. You want the apples to be soft, but not mushy.

  4. Once the apples are cooked, drizzle on the sugar-free maple syrup and lightly stir together. Feel free to adjust the amount of syrup as desired – Vermont’s is 0 SP for an unlimited amount.

  5. Enjoy hot, cold, alone, or as a side!
