Apples are something we eat a lot of in our house.  Hot, cold, juiced—it doesn’t really matter, we all love them.  Currently my daughter’s go-to snack is baked apples with cinnamon.  She loves them and could eat baked apples 3 meals a day if I let her.

Stewed or baked apples are particularly soothing and healing for the digestive tract so I like to offer them to my kids as a healthy breakfast, lunch or snack.  The bacon in this recipe adds some protein for a more complete meal.  This recipe is the perfect breakfast to warm you up on a cold winter’s day, enjoy!

Cinnamon Apples with Bacon (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Paleo)
Cinnamon Apples with Bacon (serving size: 1 adult)
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 1 apple
  • 3 strips of organic, bacon
  • Coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  1. Peel and slice the apple into small squares.  You could also shred the apple in a processor to make this an apple hash.
  2. In a frying pan over medium heat, melt one teaspoon of coconut oil and add bacon.  Cook bacon until crispy (to your liking).  Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside.  Pour out half of the oil (I reserve the oil in a glass container for future use).  Add the apples to the pan and continue cooking until apples are soft (depending on size of your apple slices about 5-8 minutes).  Sprinkle apples with a dash of cinnamon and a dash of salt.  Remove apples from pan, place in a bowl and crumble the bacon over the apples.  I topped mine with cubed avocado.
