  • 2 teaspoons unrefined virgin coconut oil
  • 2 apples, any variety, unpeeled, cored and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple juice or water

  • instructions

  • 1. Warm the coconut oil in a 9- or 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the apple chunks to the skillet and sauté until lightly golden brown on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes.
  • 2. Add the juice, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and increase the heat to high so that the juice simmers, stirring the apples occasionally. Cook until the juice is almost all evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. The apples should be tender, but not falling apart. Remove from the heat.
  • 3. Serve with your favorite protein and crunchy add-ins. My favorites are a drizzle of almond butter, pomegranate seeds, hemp seeds and toasted coconut flakes.
