This is a simple, kid-friendly recipe. It’s GAPS friendly, has no added sugar or sweeteners, is a great side dish (especially for pork) and a base for both of these grain free muffins and pancakes.

For a sweet treat, enjoy these apples warm or cold, and even try topped with fresh, homemade, maple-sweetened whipped cream. 

Easy Cinnamon Apples
by Amy Love, Real Food Whole Health

2-3 TBL ghee or coconut oil
3 apples, peeled and cut into small chunks
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Dash of unrefined sea salt
¾ – 1 cup filtered water

In a medium sauté pan (with lid), over medium high heat, melt ghee or coconut oil. Add apples and stir to coat with ghee/oil. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and dash of salt. Stir to coat well. Allow apples to cook for a minute or two, until pan is quite hot. Add water (start with ¾ cup) and cover immediately (you want to trap the steam).

Reduce heat to low and allow apples to cook for about 45 minutes, until soft enough to smash with the back of a spoon. Keep an eye on the pan during cooking, and add additional water if needed to keep the pan from cooking dry. The apples should be moist, but not swimming. When soft, smash all the apples to desired consistency and stir well. Can thin with additional water if desired.

Hi Amy!
I made these apples this afternoon, but after the 45 minutes they were still “swimming.” Should I remove the lid to cook off some of the liquid? I would love your recipe for how you use these in pancakes!

Hey Ashley! Yes, remove the lid and let the liquid reduce. It really depends on the apples- how juicy they are, how big, etc- and your cooking temperature. So, it should just boil off easily for you. I will post the pancake recipe soon :) They are SO good!!!
