Fried Apples

Whenever my kids are given the choice of fruit or vegetable with dinner, they predictably choose the fruit option. This dish is a sweet treat that tastes great with pork, sausage or any cabbage dish. Leaving the skin on the apples helps them to hold their shape. Have all of your ingredients measured and ready for to go. The dish comes together quickly and is best eaten right away. But don't toss the leftovers! it's great with a little additional coconut mild or ice cream for dessert!

Ingredients (Serves 4)
3 – 4 small organic apples, cored and thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp full-fat coconut milk
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

  1. Warm coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 
  2. Add the apples and sauté for about 5 minutes or until they start to soften, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the walnuts, if using, and cook for 2‐3 more minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon, mix well, then add the coconut milk. Stir gently to combine and continue to saute until just warm, about 1 minute.
  5. Serve immediately.


  1. Just had a bowl of this (with raisins), loved it! Thanks Pam!

    Any suggestions regarding what to serve this with?

  2. Mmmm...we haven't had these in a while. They are great with sausage and cabbage noodles:; but they are pretty versatile. You could even have them for dessert with a little coconut milk. Glad you liked them. Thanks for letting me know!
