Stovetop cinnamon apples are so much faster than baked, so you can have them ready in a snap. Bring your standard breakfast up a notch, or get a fun Sunday brunch together super-quick.
Perfect served in so many ways:
- topping for oatmeal or muesli, along with chopped walnuts
- non-dairy yogurt topped with apples and granola
- topping for french toast or pancakes (vegan versions of course)
- piled on plain toast (or grill bread in a pan with coconut oil and cinnamon… yummers…)
The sugar-cinnamon-lemon combo is truly spectacular, if you’ve not tried it before you really need to give it a shot. It’s a magical flavor sensation.
(Ottawa natives will know this flavor from my inspiration: Kilaloe Sunrise BeaverTails – which are vegan if you ask to hold the butter! This is a healthified version, using the flavor for cinnamon apples. Non-Ottawa natives: BeaverTails are a flat pastry, not an actual beaver’s tail…)
Easy & Quick Stovetop Cinnamon Apples
- 1 apple chopped
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar or other unrefined sweetener
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 wedge fresh lemon squeezed
- Heat a small pan to medium heat. Core and chop the apple. Add a small amount of water to the pan, and the apples. Let them heat until softened to your liking, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and toss to coat. If the sugar is sticking to the pan, add another small splash of water to release.
- Remove the pan from the heat, and drizzle the apples with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Serve over oatmeal, toast, or non-dairy yogurt.
