Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack


  • 6 medium apples peeled and chopped (I like a mix of red and green)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • In a medium saucepan, add your chopped apples, water and cinnamon and bring to a boil.
  • Lower the heat to simmer on low and cover. Cook for 20 minutes, until the apples are cooked through and soft enough that you can easily mash them with a fork.
  • Remove from the heat and, using an immersion blender, food processor or by hand with a potato masher, simply blend or mash up until you’ve reached your desired consistency. I personally like mine smooth with some small chunks for texture.
  • Perfect served warm off the stove over pancakes, yogurt or oatmeal.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.
