Apples and cinnamon really do make a delicious combo, and aside from tasting great, they also both have huge nutritional benefits.

Apples:

  • High in fibre – important for digestion, blood sugar levels and weight control
  • Low calorie – A medium sized apple has about 80 calories.
  • Helps to lower cholesterol levels.
  • Contains antioxidants. Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin which can help boost your immune system.

Cinnamon:

  • Helps to regulate blood sugar levels
  • Helps to lower LDL cholesterol levels
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • A natural anti-fungal
  • Has shown to reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

With such a long list of health benefits, eating an apple a day – with a sprinkle of cinnamon of course – really could keep the doctor away! Add both apples and cinnamon into your diet by adding them to a smoothie, your morning cereal or porridge. Better yet, try this simple recipe including both apples and cinnamon for a healthy, nutritious and delicious snack.

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 110 degrees Celsius. Cut apples into very thin slices and remove any seeds. Cover a baking tray with baking paper and arrange the apple slices flat on the tray. Sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over the apple slices and bake for 30-45mins. Using tongs, flip the apple slices and bake for a further 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool down completely. For “crispier” apples, allow 1 hour for baking either side. Enjoy!
