Best Ever Cinnamon Apples

Caleb loves cinnamon apples. He just can’t get enough, but he always has to get them at a restaurant because I never make them at home. Until now.

Yesterday I found a recipe on Pinterest (surprise!) that was supposedly developed by Jillian Michaels (The Biggest Loser), so you know it’s healthy. I changed up the process a little and – voila! Cinnamon apple goodness that’s quick and easy and delicious!

1 apple (I used Gala this first time.)
Saigon cinnamon*, to taste

Peel, core, and slice apple. Put in a microwave-safe dish and toss with cinnamon. Cover and microwave on HIGH for about a minute, or until the apple slices are tender. Pour into a small serving dish, making sure to let the cinnamon “sauce” drizzle over the apple slices. Mmmmmm…!

That’s all there is to it! No butter, no sugar, just plain natural goodness.

*A friend of mine recently introduced me to Saigon cinnamon, and now I won’t use anything else. It’s got a wonderful sweet-hot flavor that is unmatched. The boys now ask for “the good cinnamon” whenever I make anything that uses it. 🙂
