6 large apples, peeled and sliced
Cinnamon to taste
Stove directions: Place the apple slices in a pot and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until the apples begin to release juice. Then stir occasionally until the apples are soft. The apples will be ready after 25-30 minutes of cooking.
Slow cooker directions: Place the apple slices in a slow cooker and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook on high for 1-1.5 hours, until the apples are soft.
Tip: Cinnamon apples can be served warm or cold. They taste great as a topper on yogurt!
Hi there! My name is Katie, and I’m a Registered Dietitian at the South WIC office in Fountain. I love hearing from WIC families about their challenges, successes, and health goals! Because I have a busy schedule, I prefer cooking large-batch meals that are quick to prepare. Cinnamon apples are my go-to side dish for special occasions and potlucks. They are delicious, naturally sweet, and full of fiber!
Apples are also my favorite fruit, because they are so versatile! I love to pack an apple with my lunch, mix diced apples into my oatmeal, and dip apple slices in peanut butter for a snack!
