Cinnamon Applesauce

Cinnamon Applesauce

A frequent request from my Richie is for me to whip up a batch of applesauce.  It’s one of his favorite things, and I’m always happy to comply, because, not only is this cinnamon applesauce delicious, it is also super healthy as well!

Unlike traditional applesauce, the inclusion of the peels in this recipe, ups the ante in the nutritional value!  Win Win!!!

You know that old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”?  As it turns out, it’s actually pretty spot on.  Apples have a very high anti-oxidant level, which means they are also very anti-inflammatory.  They are also one of the highest fiber content fruits.  All of these amazing benefits of apples make them an ideal fruit to add to your healthy eating lifestyle.

The addition of cinnamon to this delicious recipe, provides a double whammy of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory punch!

Foods that are high in anti-oxidants and fiber have been shown to reduce the risks of heart disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disorders, lower cholesterol and promote weight loss.

Applesauce, in addition to being a delicious side dish or a great topper for your nut butter whole grain toast, can also be used in recipes as a replacement for sugar and oil.  It is one of my absolute favorite things to use.  Next time you bake a cake, substitute the oil for applesauce.  Healthy, and delicious!
