Awesome Autumn Apple Amazingness



I am lucky enough to have access to about a million apples from my mum's garden. All different types from bramley to cox to some you can only guess at and can probably be dated back to the neolithic period the trees have been there that long. But what do you do with all those apples!??


Well we have a ritualistic juicing of the apples once (or sometimes twice if there is a bumper crop) each year. Everyone must try some of the first press and a days hard labour - possibly more light graft - and most of the apples will have been made into the most amazing juice or cidre. However, I always manage to squirrel a bag or two away because there is nothing more amazing than fresh apples, a whole heap of cinnamon, a hot oven and an hour later, the most amazing apple dessert you could wish for... not forgetting a big dollop of coconut milk/cream to make it even more amazing!


If you know me at all, you know that I like food as quick, simple and easy as possible. I can often be accused of eating for function, especially with my training taking such a major role in my life. I need to eat to fuel the activity so timing, balance of the right macros (proteins, carbs and fat) and maximum nutrient content are all of paramount importance to keep me on top form.


BUT, this is one food that doesn't necessarily fit those criteria. Don't get me wrong, it is healthy, nutrient full and great pre or post workout, depending on the fuel needed, but this is my anytime, anywhere, 'just because' bowl of deliciousness.





It really doesn't look like much, but it's just the most nourishing, fulfilling treat, especially on a cold Autumn day.


Slow baked apples with oodles of cinnamon. Literally chop and core apples, whack on the cinnamon, add a little water and bake for 45 mins. Serve with a nice dollop of coconut milk.


You could chuck in some oats as well for a more substantial breakfast or pudding.


Seriously yum!!
