Warm, comforting, sweet…what aren’t cinnamon apples?! Not only are they great on their own, but they’re the perfect topper for pancakes, oatmeal, and ice-cream. Cinnamon apples = ice-cream = SUMMER. See what I did there?
My favorite cinnamon apples were always from Boston Market – they’re SO soft and sweet, and as you can imagine, very high in Weight Watchers SmartPoints. Not going to lie, now that I’m an adult I think they’re a little too sweet! Regardless, while they’re a nice treat every now and then, wouldn’t it be better to have a healthier alternative (a 0 SP one, to be exact?). Cue today’s recipe.
Believe it or not, the first time I tried making Weight Watcher’s zero SP cinnamon apples when I was away at college. Across my apartment building was a Produce Junction, and my roommates and I would buy a huuuuge bag of apples every now and then. Well, one of those purchases my senior year turned into this apples & cinnamon recipe (and the rest was history). While I’ve tweaked it here and there, it’s pretty much as simple as it was back then; meaning it’s simple and inexpensive enough that a college student could do it! If only all recipes were that easy…
Weight Watchers Cinnamon Apples:
Time: 35 min | Smartpoints: 0 | Servings: 2
- 3 large apples, gala or granny smith
- 3-4 tsp cinnamon (I like using Frontier)
- 1 tbsp of Truvia or 0 calorie sweetener
- 2 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup (I used Vermont’s)
- 1/4 cup water (adjust accordingly, apple size affects this)
- Slice up the apples on a cutting board. I went with larger slices, but dicing works as well.
- Pour water in a small pot and drop the apples in. Begin cooking on a medium heat.
- Add cinnamon and 1 tbsp of sweetener. Stir everything together so the cinnamon and sweetener coats all of the apples. Lid the pot and let them cook on a medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, checking in and stirring every 5 minutes are so. You want the apples to be soft, but not mushy.
- Once the apples are cooked, drizzle on the sugar-free maple syrup and lightly stir together. Feel free to adjust the amount of syrup as desired – Vermont’s is 0 SP for an unlimited amount.
- Enjoy hot, cold, alone or as a side!
