Convincing enough? ))
- 2 larger apples (sweeter variety such as Jonagold or Golden Delicious)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (good quality extra virgin)
- 1/2 tbsp raw cocoa powder (preferably organic)
- 1 pinch cardamon
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Wash, peel, and chop the apples (no need for peeling if you are using organic ones).
Heat coconut oil in a smaller pot. Once heated, stir in chopped apples.
After 1 minute, add cardamom & cinnamon.
Keep stir frying for another 10 minutes with half covered lid on. You don’t have to constantly stir like a maniac; once every 2 minutes will do.
You are finished once apples become a bit mushy, but still firm enough to the bite.
You can serve them straight away topped with some roasted nuts of your choice and a dash of honey or other natural sweetener (maple syrup pairs perfectly).
- Apples release their natural sweetness during the cooking process, so there is no need to use additional sweeteners during frying. I recommend adding a dash of honey or a maple syrup before serving only for hedonistic reasons))
- Feel free to add few extra apples (double the spice dose then) and pack the leftovers for a yummy dessert at work the next day. Great healthy way to satisfy those afternoon office sugar cravings.
I treat this dish more as a meal than a dessert. With its’ heart-warming aroma and full flavour, it is an ideal light breakfast or dinner during colder days.
