Clean Eating Sauteed Apples

Since it’s really cold and snowy this weekend, I decided to spend some quality time in the kitchen and get caught up on some dishes I’ve been wanting to try. I’m sure glad I did because these sautéed apples are delicious and hit just the right spot. I just ate some as a post-workout snack, but you could serve these up with a chicken, pork or turkey dish or eat as a dessert or even as a clean eating breakfast.
For these Clean Eating Sautéed Apples, you’ll want to choose an apple that is crisp and slightly tart. Granny Smiths, Pink Ladies, and Galas are good picks, but you can use any variety of apple you’d like.
- 3 apples
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil*
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 c. chopped pecans
- Core and cut your apples into bite-sized pieces.
- Warm a skillet to medium-high heat.
- Place the chopped pecans in the skillet and toast them for appx. 4 minutes, then add coconut oil.
- Add your apple pieces and 2 tsp. cinnamon.
- Sauté for 6 minutes; serve warm.
*Note: I used coconut oil in this recipe, but 1 tbsp. of grass-fed, clarified butter would work well as an alternative.
