Healthy Cooked Apples

Healthy Cooked Apples PinThese Healthy Cooked Apples make a great dessert, side dish, snack, or topping for your Vegan Pancakes, Vegan Chia Seed Pancakes or Rolled Oats Breakfast. They’re sweet, decadent and delicious!

Amelia has been pestering me to eat more apples, but I’ve never been a fan of raw apples. The texture doesn’t appeal to me for some reason. But apples cooked up in a pie is a different story altogether. I love apple pie!

So I came up with an idea that makes eating apples my way healthy. That makes Amelia happy with me for eating more apples, and it makes me happy by preparing them in a way that tastes delicious! It’s a win-win!

These apples only have a couple of ingredients, no added sugar and no fat. It’s important to use Granny Smith apples to bring some tartness or they can be too sweet. Leave the peel for the extra fiber. It softens when cooked.
