"It's NOT just about the food....it's personal!"

Roasted Apple Butter

If you thought that apple butter was not part of a healthy eating lifestyle, think again!  Remember, it’s all about the ingredients!

Few flavors say fall better than cinnamon and apples, and apple butter is a delicious and healthy combination of both!  Warm and spicy, it’s the perfect topping for your nut butter whole grain toast, a delicious addition to your morning bowl of yogurt or heck, just eaten right off the spoon!

While traditional apple butter is made with loads of sugar and also the use of apple cider, both of which add way to much added sugar to the equation, this recipe delivers all the flavor and none of those added sugars.

You see, apples are naturally sweet, full of fiber, very high in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients, which make them almost the perfect fruit.

It is because of the apples’ natural sweetness, that we don’t need any additional sugars to create this delicious roasted apple butter!

Another thing that sets this apple butter apart is the inclusion of the skins.  We all probably know that it is the skin that contains the most nutrients, so we’re not skipping ANY of that!  

I’m so proud to offer you this delicious roasted apple butter and can’t wait for your feedback!

Bon Appetit!
