Cinnamon Spice Apples Dessert

I don’t really post a lot of desserts, because I don’t come across that many healthy dishes that offer a sweet treat and could be called a dessert. This is definitely one of the few though. It’s simple but so delicious and it’s the perfect treat to satisfy a sweet tooth after a nice meal. You can eat it cold, or warm it up.

Ingredients:

2 McIntosh apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions:

1. Rinse the apples with water and toss them with the cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl, so all the pieces are evenly coated.

2. Warm the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

3. Add the apples to the saucepan and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

There is something so enticing about the combination of apples and cinnamon. Add a splash of almond milk or coconut milk to add a punch of flavour.

Avocado and Banana with Honey and Cinnamon

avobanI’m not a huge fan of the term “dessert”, because quite frankly, I think if you’re making satisfying, healthy meals, you don’t need anything afterward. I’ve never had that much of a sweet tooth, but it is nice to treat yourself. For those times when you want something sweet after your dinner, here’s a great idea.

This sweet treat is so easy to prepare, it’s almost ridiculous writing out a recipe for it. It doesn’t take more than a couple minutes to whip up, and it’s sooooo delicious. Not to mention it’s way healthier for you than pigging back on a pile of cookies or chocolate.
