Steamed apples are a fall favorite of mine. They contain no added sugar and are paleo and vegan friendly. I love how easy these are to make, and they taste just like applesauce. I used organic fuji apples, which turned a burnt orange color after I steamed them in the oven (like mini pumpkins!). By adding just a little water to a baking dish, you can steam anything, plus, the cinnamon sticks infuse the water like an herbal tea. I used to make this growing up, with a microwave instead of an oven, and with spicy cinnamon candies instead of cinnamon sticks.
Either way, this recipe is perfect for the upcoming holidays. Don’t you just love apple season?
