Heart Healthy Cinnamon Apples
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)
Slice up the apples on a cutting board. I went with larger slices, but dicing works as well.
Pour water in a small pot and drop the apples in. Begin cooking on medium heat.
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.
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.
Enjoy hot, cold, alone, or as a side!
