Cinnamon Apples (AIP, Paleo, Anti-Inflammatory)

Updated: Feb 20

An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

This is for good reason. Not only is this recipe super easy and good for young and old, it's high in fibre, which supports digestion and blood sugar.

Apple is a good source of pectin, a soluble fibre that absorbs water in the intestines, slowing down digestion. For those with an IBD, you may want to peel the skin off the apple as that can be irritating for some, especially if in a flare.

Serves 4

  • 2 apples, chopped

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

  • ⅛ tsp sea salt

  • ¼ tsp non-alcohol vanilla extract (or vanilla powder for AIP)

Place chopped apples into a small saucepan with 2 tbsp water. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. After about 5 minutes the apples will become slightly soft, and water will be absorbed.

Add 1 tbsp coconut oil. Stir apples and oil together.

Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring every minute or so.

Add cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Stir well.

Cook for another few minutes, stirring until the apples reach your desired softness!

Serve and enjoy!
