What Makes These Cinnamon Apples Healthier?
What Apples Are Best for Cooking?
I like using Honey Crisp or Gala. According to allrecipes.com, other apples that hold up well when cooked are Braeburn, Fuji, Gala, Jonagold, and Golden Delicious (just to name a few). I’m going to go out on a limb and say that all apples would taste delicious served this way!

Hi Brandy, I have been wanting to do some apples this way for a while now. I was able to get some Stoufer’s apples a couple years back, totally fat free, and I would microwave them, and add a little granola in the bottom of a souffle cup, then the hot apples and we felt like we were eating apple pie, without all the fat, so your recipe sounds healthy, and easy, I’m going to try it, thanks for sharing, tami
I love anything “apples”, especially at this time of year – looks delish! Stop by to enter my giveaway of 100 printed postcards!
These sound fabulous, especially for this time of the year! I’m visiting from OTMM.
Apples are favorite fruit in every sessions. We make different dishes with apples and same thing doing with berries. My grandmother likes to make blackberry jam, blackberry cobbler, blackberry lemonade, and many more recipes of blackberry.
Hi Brandy, what a great recipe. Would be perfect for apple crisp/crumble and apple pie. I found and am following you through My Romantic Home and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you could follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Had some apples a little past their prime so I gave this. A try. Delish! I only used 1 cup of apple juice and 1 T. corn starch and just enough apple juice to mix it with. I wanted it thick. Going to try it with my morning yogurt.
