Apples Roasted with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar served on Yogurt

Nothing says fall like apples! A wonderful way to enjoy apples when they’re in season is roasting them in the oven. I have adapted this from Not Without Salt, it’s a simple and versatile recipe. Once finished roasting you can either eat it for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or serve on yogurt topped with granola for breakfast (pictured above).

I roasted the apple chunks with coconut oil, a healthy substitute for butter. Combined with the vanilla bean it creates a wonderful aroma.

Mix all ingredients together and roast for about an hour.

Roasted Apples Recipe

  • 4-6 apples, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
    1 tablespoon brown sugar

    Preheat oven to 425°F.

    Combine all ingredients in an oven-safe pan. Roast apples for about 50-60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes until apples are golden brown around the edges. Serve with vanilla ice cream, oatmeal or yogurt and granola.

    Total Time: 60-70 minutes
    Yield: 2 cups

        Thanks Samah! Putting on top of pound cake sounds great, maybe a little fresh whipped cream as well?
