A Simple Cinnamon and Apple Breakfast Bowl


Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day … And so is dessert. If I could live on one or the the other forever I would, but I can’t, so I have to make dessert for breakfast, or have breakfast for dessert. And this is what this recipe is for …

A simple cinnamon and apple breakfast bowl, that can also be eaten for dessert.

The recipe is so easy. It takes no more than 15 minutes and all you need are the basic ingredients that are already in your fridge. (Thats if you keep a bag of Granny Smith apples in your fridge as a basic … but because they are so healthy, you should.)

A bag of Granny Smith Apples – peeled, cored and halfed (I always get mine from my nearest Food Lovers Market)


Brown Sugar or Honey


Granola (I like this one from Faithful-To-Nature)


Boil the apples in water that is just enough to cover the apples. Keep an eye on them and once they are soft enough (if a knife goes through them) rinse any excess water, if there is any. You will then need a masher (yes, the one you mash potatoes with) and start mashing the apples. While you’re mashing them in the pot over a very low heat, add the cinnamon and brown sugar (or honey) to your desired taste. I love the cinnamon flavour, so I add quite a heap. I use a little bit of brown sugar just to take away some of the sourness of the apples. But it is all up to your desired tastes 🙂
Once the apple compote is ready, you can transfer it to a container and store it in the fridge, until breakfast time … or dessert. Or even a little afternoon snack.

Put some in a bowl, top with greek yoghurt and some granola for that added crunch. I kid you not, you will love love love this treat.

This yummy breakfast bowl (or dessert) is perfect for any season. It has delicious warm cinnamon flavours that are perfect for winter. And is also packed with refreshing green apples that are perfect for summer. As delicious as it is, it so healthy.


♥ Cinnamon is one of the most delicious and healthiest spices. It is loaded with super powerful antioxidants as well as anti-inflammatory properties, that help the body fight infections and repair tissue damage. It can also lower blood sugar levels and reduce heart disease risk factors.

♥ Granny Smith Apples are the healthiest apples. And this is why I like to use them. They are naturally low in calories, full of fibre, rich in antioxidants and regulate blood sugar levels.

If you make this delicious recipe, please let me know what you think.



  1. This look so divine. I make my own yoghurt and so I can’t wait to try some with the apples.
