This healthy fried apple recipe is a yummy dessert that the whole family will love and it only has a very small amount of sugar in it and is very very easy. Plus it’s a great use for stale apples. Our kids LOVE it when I make this as a side dish or for an after dinner treat. It can be served with whipped cream or ice cream if desired. We’re dairy free at our home, so we just serve it as is.
This recipe was made in an enameled French Dutch oven. I can’t say enough good things about this pan! It cooks like cast iron, but is so much easier to clean and has a healthy non-stick coating. I use it for just about everything from frying meat to steaming vegetables to making soup. Make sure to use a plastic or wooden spoon on your dutch oven so the coating doesn’t scratch. If you don’t have a dutch oven, just make it in a frying pan.
- 5 apples (any kind is fine, we like fuji)
- 2 T. butter
- 2 T. brown sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- Core and chop apples into medium bite sized pieces. It is not necessary to peel the apples. Melt butter in a large enameled French dutch oven over medium heat. Add chopped apples and the remaining ingredients. When mixture boils, stir and reduce heat to medium low and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and serve warm.
