A simple recipe to make stewed apples without added sugar and with warming spices.
Growing up in a Midwest family, we went all-out for Sunday morning breakfast. It always included my dad’s stewed apples, pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs with cheese, and muffins.
Now I’m bringing back those stewed apples NS style! I promise this is one of the easiest recipes you’ll make. It’s a healthy spin on the traditional recipe by using no added sugars.
All you need is 3-4 fresh apples of your choice! I find that gala, fuji, and honey crisp are my favorites to stew, but the beauty is in using whatever you have on hand, what’s seasonal to your region, and what tastes good to you.
Apples are one of my favorite digestive friendly fruits due to their unique fiber content. They contain both insoluble and soluble fiber, which are great for improving digestion.
Apples have also been studied and associated with improving cognitive function, reducing risk of heart disease, diabetes, reducing cholesterol, managing weight, bone health, as well as digestive health.
