Deliciously Healthy Spiced Apples

Deliciously Healthy Spiced Apples

These are much healthier than the traditional brown sugar spiced apples that are a common side item at BBQ joints or used in pie fillings.  The traditional sugar, fat and calorie loaded kind has about 3 times the sugar, 2 times the fat and double the calories or more than this healthier yet just as tasty version.


3 apples (any kind) skinned, cored and sliced

1 tbsp coconut oil

¼ cup light brown sugar

¼ cup stevia in the raw or splenda

1 ½ tsp cinnamon

5 -7 dashes nutmeg

3  -5 dashes cloves

Directions:  Place apples in a medium pot and cover with water, bring to boil and cook until they are tender and you can poke with a fork easily, about 3-5 minutes after water has begun to boil.  Strain water out and add in all ingredients and gently stir to combine.  Serve warm.  You can add walnuts or pecans for protein or top them with vanilla yogurt or frozen yogurt for a healthy and tasty snack / dessert.  Makes 4 servings.
