Almost Apple Pie

I’ve been all about simple meals lately. Chicken and vegetables, steak in a salad. Fresh. Quick. Easy.

The easiest breakfast is usually eggs (over easy) with a side of spinach but i had other plans today. I was craving an apple this morning bad. I didn’t want to just eat an apple though, I really wanted a warm one. Ideally the pieces would be soft and chewy, sprinkled with cinnamon. Like warm applesauce straight from the pot.

Well, that was as easy as it appeared in my head and better than apple sauce because it was like the filling of an apple pie.

Eat this as part of breakfast (I still had my eggs…), a snack or dessert. It’s warm and tasty and works for any time of the day.
