You can use any type of apple you have or like, though generally tart cooking apples (like Granny Smith or Pink Lady) soften nicely without falling apart too quickly.


  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 23 medium apples, cored and chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Warm the butter or oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. When melted, add the apples. Stir to coat and cook for 10 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork.
  2. Stir in the cinnamon and serve warm.


Use butter or coconut oil, according to your preference.

Use any type of apple you prefer, though harder cooking apples do work well here.

If you use an apple that’s softer when eaten fresh (like Gala), they may cook a little faster.

Double the recipe if desired to make more.

Serve warm or cold plain or over yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, chicken, pork, or another favorite meal.

Portion out into snack containers to have grab-and-go snack options ready and waiting in the fridge.
