If your family is like ours, you’ve probably recently gone apple picking — or you plan to at some point this Fall.
There are many things you can do with an apple — pie, crisp, baked, etc. — but we wanted to offer you a healthy recipe that is not only delicious but easy to make. So, we created these Cinnamon Apple Rings which are pan-seared apple deliciousness. You can eat them for breakfast or dessert – they are actually an amazing after school snack! All you need is an apple (or two), an egg, flour (we used brown rice flour), cinnamon and oil (we prefer coconut, but whatever you have on hand is perfect). In five simple steps you will be feasting on these Cinnamon Apple Rings.
You can drizzle honey on top for added sweetness, or add a dollop of Greek yogurt and walnuts. You can top them with ice cream or dip them in nut butter. They are versatile and can be jazzed up anyway you’d like them. But, honestly, they are delicious right out of the pan with nothing on them at all!
Cinnamon Apple Rings
Serving depends on size of apple, but we used one large apple
1 large apple (we used Cortland)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Slice the apple into 1/4 inch rounds, remove the core. (You can slice them in circles or in half moons, whatever suits you is fine).
Beat an egg and add a tablespoon of water. In a separate bowl, add the flour and cinnamon, mix to combine. Dredge an apple slice in the egg mixture and then coat with the flour/cinnamon mixture. Shake off excess flour mixture.
Heat the coconut oil in a pan. The oil will come to temperature quickly, so keep the heat at medium, but you may need to adjust depending on the size of your burner.
Cook about a minute on each side — until the apples are nicely browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm and enjoy!
