Someone give me a sticker: “I survived Whole30”!! Have you heard of the Whole30 program? It’s basically eating whole foods (that’s right, NO sugar!) for 30 days, to reset your body. I’m up for a good challenge and I knew it was probably time to do something, so I tried it. And made it! Which is saying a lot, because I’m HUGE into sweets. Like huge. So cutting out dessert was a really big deal. About a week and a half in, Trevor was all “do you want me to fry you up an apple or something”, joking about my lack of dessert – – but then it sounded so good, I thought, yes, let’s do that! And it was surprisingly really good. I think it’s how I was able to get through the whole 30 days, because it gave me a version of dessert that was working for me. Kind of like a healthy apple pie. Minus the pie.
I was just going to share this on social media, but then I thought I should put it here on the blog in case it helps anyone else who’s struggling with trying to find a healthy dessert option.
So, let’s dive right in!
–tsp of coconut oil (I usually just guesstimate this)
–1 apple, diced (my favorite is granny smith, the green apples)
–cinnamon and nutmeg
–optional: pecans and/or raisins
First you heat up your pan and put in the oil and apples:
After a few minutes, add in cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (I don’t measure, just sprinkle it in) and the nuts and/or raisins (if desired).
Then you just cook it for a few more minutes, until the apples have started to soften. Then eat them while still warm – seriously, so good!!
If you are looking for a dessert alternative, this healthy apple pie is the answer!!
