simple 3 ingredient brown buttered cinnamon apples


3 ingredient brown buttered cinnamon apples - a simple recipe that takes apples to a warm cozy place |

I make these brown buttered cinnamon apples for my little one all the time. 

You might assume I am pretty fancy for making these for my toddler.

A more accurate assumption would be that I was doing too many things at once, forgot the butter was heating on the stove, and it started to brown.

So I threw the apples in with some cinnamon and voila! Brown buttered cinnamon apples. This is such a simple way to jazz up some fruit. And with cold weather just around the corner, warm apples in the morning warms your belly.


1 Tbsp. butter
1 organic apple* - cut into chunks
1 tsp. cinnamon


In a small frying pan, heat the butter on medium heat until it starts to brown. Turn down the heat. Toss in the apples and the cinnamon and continue cooking until apples start to soften. It usually only takes 2-3 minutes. And if you also happen to forget the apples are cooking you will end up with some nice crispy cinnamon apples or applesauce. (this might have happened to me as well)

*Obviously, you can use any apple you want. The reason I put organic in the ingredients is because apples are one of the most pesticide-laden fruits. I don't buy everything organic, but apples and strawberries are 2 of the fruits I do organic 99% of the time.
