Indulge this season with this simple, six-ingredient recipe for Cinnamon Apples! Made on the stovetop in under fifteen minutes these candied apples make a tasty, comforting treat!

As fall comes around, most of us are naturally searching for warmer, comforting foods with indulgent scents and a sweeter flavor.

And that’ exactly what this Cinnamon Apple recipe gives us!

These apples are a tasty combo of refreshing fruit and an indulgent sauce. The base is made with coconut milk and coconut syrup which keeps the recipe allergy-friendly as well as giving us an indulgent feel.

Like any great dessert, these Cinnamon Apples are made with only six ingredients and ready to eat in under fifteen minutes. You’ll definitely want to use up the extra apples this season with this simple dessert!


Is This Dish Paleo?

Yes! These candied apples are sweetened with coconut syrup which is a natural sweetener derived from coconuts.

Between the apples and the coconut syrup, this recipe is naturally pretty sweet. The cinnamon adds a nice touch and a bit of comfort.


How To Use The Cinnamon Apples

These candied apples are eaten as a dessert most of the time. They’re light, allergy-friendly, and simple to make. Plus, they taste delicious all on their own.

However, the apples also taste delicious on top of ice cream! Since the apples are made warm, you may want to cool them before adding them to the ice cream. But once room temperature, they add a whole new indulgence to a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

The cinnamon apples can also be used on top of pancakes or waffles or even mixed into a bowl of your favorite oatmeal.


Choosing Your Apples

For this recipe, I used fuji apples however all apples will work! That said, each kind of apple will bring a different flavor to the stovetop apples.

Some apples (like granny smith) are naturally more tart and while the sweetness of the recipe will come through, the flavor will still be different compared to say, MacInsosh apples.

My advice is to use a variety of apples that you already enjoy or that you have on hand. Don’t limit yourself to just one style!

  1. Peel and slice the apples. Heat a pan over medium heat and add the coconut oil.
  2. Once warm and melted, add the apples and the spices and toss so that the apples are coated. Cook for 1-2 minutes until cinnamon is fragrant.
  3. Add in the coconut milk and syrup and stir the apples. Cover the pan with a lid and let cook 4 minutes until the apples are beginning to get soft.
  4. Remove the lid and let cook another 4-5 minutes until the “sauce” is beginning to reduce.
  5. Turn off the stove and they’re ready to serve!
Recipe Notes

Note: you can cook the apples longer until all the sauce is absorbed or a bit sticky. However, most people enjoy the sauce to pour over waffles, pancakes, or ice cream.
