Hot Cinnamon Apples for Breakfast
On Sunday morning, we were both craving junk food for breakfast (read: doughnuts filled with dulce de leche and topped with chocolate). In an attempt to avoid starting the day off with refined sugar and wheat (both of which lead to digestive havoc for the two of us), I came up with this. It was a great breakfast for a chilly fall morning (and easy to digest!).
3 Apples, thickly sliced (I used two Granny Smith, which are my favorites, plus parts of a red apple)
1 Lemon, juiced
3 T. Honey
1 T. Ghee (We tend to digest ghee, or clarified butter, better than regular butter)
1 t. Cinnamon
Slice apples and juice lemon. Toss apples in a bowl with lemon juice.
Heat the ghee in a saucepan, then add apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and drizzle with honey. Cook, covered, until apples are soft.
