Warm Cinnamon Apples for One

I had one lonely apple sitting in the fridge. I was craving a mid-day snack. But I didn’t feel like my usual apple and peanut butter routine. Then the light bulb went off and I thought “CINNAMON APPLES”.

So I quickly googled to find a quick and easy recipe that would allow me to use things I had readily available in my kitchen. I decided to try out this recipe.

Again, I only had one apple…so I just pretty much took this recipe and cut it in 1/4th.

Warm Cinnamon Apples

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  •  a pinch of ground nutmeg (omit if you don’t have it on hand)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter

Directions:

  1. Toss together first 4 ingredients, coating the apples with the spices and sugar.
  2. Cook apple mixture, water, butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8 minutes or until apples are tender.
  3. Let cool a bit and indulge in some warm apples all by yourself 😉

This was the perfect little snack and I say it’s healthy! It also was good that I only had one apple because this recipe is so divine that if I had more apples, I’m sure I could have downed them all!
