Caramelized Apples and Cinnamon

Print Friendly

This recipe was inspired by Melissa over at The Clothes Make the Girl. Her cookbook, Well Fed, has a recipe called “Fried apples with bacon and pecans” in it. If you wanna see that recipe, you’ll just have to go get  her cookbook! This one is close to it, but I didn’t have bacon…or lemon. So I did what I needed to do.








Recipe: Caramelized Apples and Cinnamon (serves 2-3)

2 apples, peeled and cored, and sliced pretty thin

1 TBSP coconut oil

A little less than 1/4 cup chopped unsalted pecans

1 tsp. cinnamon

pinch of salt

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples and sprinkle with cinnamon and salt. Stir and let cook for 2-3 minutes to brown. Stir again, add pecans, and let cook for another 3-4 minutes. Stir again, and cook until desired doneness. I like mine pretty soft.

*Note: This recipe is Whole30 approved. However, make sure you’re not using it as a crutch to satisfy those sweet cravings! I try to have this as part of a meal or at a time when I’m not necessarily craving something sweet. Enjoy!

    These were fantastic!! I used walnuts because I didn’t have pecans. I think slivered almonds would be tasty too!!!
