If you’re looking for an easy dessert idea, don’t skip out on your apples! They’re sometimes so easily forgotten about, but when they are cooked they get a nice sweet taste that can absolutely satisfy that dessert craving.

We get them in our produce box as Bruce is a big fan of them for breakfast and snacks, but when his Dad and I are scrounging the kitchen for a late night snack to satisfy the sweet tooth, these come in clutch and make us feel a little better about having an apple or two instead of going for the cereal or chocolate 🙂

These are super easy as you just slice and sauté, but they can be “dressed up” to be more decadent as well. If you’re feeling a little more extra, whip some coconut cream (the solid part of a can of full-fat coconut milk, NOT a can of coconut cream – it’s too runny) and drizzle on top. ⁠

RECIPE (Serves 2)


  • 1 apple (go for a sweet red one!)⁠, sliced⁠
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil⁠
  • 1 tsp cinnamon⁠
  • Fat from a can of coconut milk⁠


Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add in coconut oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add apple slices. Cook until apples are soft, about 3-5 mins. Remove from pan and top with cinnamon. Put your coconut fat in a bowl, and whip with a fork or spoon until combined and soft. Top your apples with it, and serve!⁠
