The magic of the Cinnamon Apple Slices
As part of the husband’s Christmas gifts this year, I treated us to a couple’s day at the spa. And we went all out! We had full body massages, facials, and pedicures. It was 3 1/2 hours of pure bliss!
The husband immensely loved it. And it really helped to ease some of his back pain.
While we were there, they offered some amazing healthy foods to snack on in between sessions. They had tasty nut mixes, orange water, herbal teas, sliced cheeses and more. We were seriously pampered.
But one of my favorite snacks they offered us were Cinnamon Apple slices. All it took was one bite and I was hooked! I couldn’t believe how insanely easy they were, yet so full of flavor!
No need for sugar, or chocolate, or any other junk food with these around! It completely satisfies my sweet tooth.
We ended up hosting a New Years Eve party with some friends. And since we are all trying to be healthier, we served up a veggie tray, cheese variety tray, our delicious homemade Chlorophyll water (recipe coming soon), and these Cinnamon Apple slices.
The kids went nuts over them! They couldn’t get enough. And that was OK by me! Especially since they contain zero added sugar and take less than five minutes to prepare a full plate.
The adults at the party couldn’t get enough either. They texted me a couple days later, saying they have been making them multiple times a day since the party.
So let me show you how to make the best healthy Cinnamon Apples recipe! No baking required. No sugar. And all with only 2 ingredients and under 5 minutes!
Learn How To Make Cinnamon Apples Recipe
Not that you need a tutorial. Really, you don’t. You probably just need the idea planted in your head. And from there you can perfectly make Cinnamon Apples!
But so you can see how easy and amazing this tasty treat is, I’ll show you how to make it.
Get a Fuji Apple.
Really you can use any kind of apple you want. But Fuji apples are our favorite. They have the perfect crispness. Not too soft and mushy but not too hard. They also are full of a perfectly balanced sweet juice. Not dry or pithy. Not overly sour or overly sweet. Just the perfect balance.
Are you ready for the next step? This is the hardest step of the entire recipe. You sure you are ready?
Of Course, you are!
Trim any leftover seeds, and slice the apple however you like.
I often just cut them into easy to grab wedges. But if you really want to have fun with the kids, cut them into french fry shapes. Or cut into small bite-size squares, or use the apple peeler to make curly fry shapes. It’s all up to you how you want to cut them.
Once the apples are cut, lay them out so they aren’t overlapping.
Sprinkle with Cinnamon. Notice, I said Cinnamon. Pure Cinnamon. No sugar. Just honest to goodness, Cinnamon Spice.
That’s all you need. Because we’re using the Fuji apple, you don’t need any sugar at all. It provides enough sweetness on its own.
Thus why this makes for the perfect snack or meal addition! It tastes sweet, but it’s all natural and healthy!
Do your best not to get the cinnamon too thick, otherwise you will be extremely parched. You just want a light dusting of the apple slices.
It’s gluten-free, paleo diet friendly, Weight Watchers friendly, and even bright line eating approved!
I love to enjoy this cinnamon apples recipe as part of my bright line eating breakfasts!
The kids beg for them for afterschool snacks.
- 1 Fuji Apple
- Cinnamon Spice
- Core and slice the apple into wedges or bite-sized pieces.
- Spread apple pieces in a single layer on a plate.
- Lightly sprinkle with pure cinnamon spice
- Enjoy and watch them disappear into happy mouths.
- Make sure you are using pure Cinnamon Spice. Not cinnamon Sugar.
- You can use any kind of apple you prefer, but we found the Fuji apples lend enough juice to counteract the drying of the cinnamon. And they are sweet enough to not need sugar added.
So next time you have a gathering with friends, bring a plate of these to share. It’s a great finger food to help you stay on your healthier eating plan. While at the same time enjoying the social aspect of party food.
But you may want to take a second plate to the party too. Because once everyone takes their first bite, they will be back for more! Watch those apples just fly off the plate and disappear!
