Lazy Lady Dessert

Peanut butter and blue cheese. Two of my all time favorite foods. Two foods that do not go well together. And yes, I tried.

HOWEVER, two things that do go together better than peanut butter and blue cheese is cinnamon and apples.

Behold, the Cinnamon Agave Apple dessert!

This recipe is so ridiculously easy a child could do it. In fact, I encourage you to have your child do it! There’s something to be said about gaining some self-esteem in the kitchen. Shoot, the little ones I visit LOVE putting the spinach in the smoothies. Gullible Trusting little things aren’t they?

Cinnamon Agave Apples

*30 min total time; serves 1, adjust accordingly

Cinnamon Agave Sauce to be made beforehand

  • 1/4 c raw agave
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (adjust to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg (adjust to taste)
Take all of the above ingredients, and place in a container with a lid and shake. Pat self on back for being 1/2 done. Next…
  • 1 apple, sliced (peeling is optional); I used a Winesap
  • 1 batch of cinnamon agave sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a bowl toss apple slices with sauce until well coated.
  3. Pour apples into a baking dish. Too big and it will spread the sauce too thin around the pan.
  4. Place dish in preheated oven and try not to watch it for the next 25 minutes. You can look, but don’t touch. Pat self on back for being 3/4 done.
  5. Pull out of oven after 25 minutes and watch it some more waiting for the flesh-seary-ness to dissipate.
  6. Eat. Pat self on back for being all the way done.

I put some fantastic vanilla frozen yogurt on mine, but that will have to wait until sugar-free January is over. But the apples can be had any time. And honestly, the apples are amazing dipped in the sauce so it’s a fantastic raw dessert as well.

Happy New Year to my faithful followers!
