I opened up my crisper drawer yesterday morning and saw three perfect Granny Smith apples. I had been spiralizing carrots and suddenly, inspiration struck. Why not spiralize the apples, saute them with a little Kerry Gold butter, cinnamon and some brown sugar? (Actually, I used the Truvia brown sugar blend that works just as well.)
For those on the Paleo diet, you could substitute coconut oil for the butter, and use honey or maple syrup in place of brown sugar. Vegans, cut out the butter and substitute with your choice of healthy cooking oil.
Lots of people enjoy skillet apples with pork chops. That’s how I remember them, growing up. But yesterday, I had these apples for breakfast with scrambled eggs and lean ham. Last night, I enjoyed them with a dollop of Greek yogurt. They’d also be great with a dab of Cool Whip and a drizzle of caramel syrup.
3 Granny Smith apples, spiralized and pulled apart into rings
3 tbsp. butter or coconut oil
2 tbsp. brown sugar (Truvia makes a brown sugar blend that acts just like regular brown sugar) or a drizzle of maple syrup or honey
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Over medium heat, melt butter or oil and add apples. Saute for about five minutes. Add brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Continue stirring apples until they are softened and covered with syrup.
