  • 3 apples cored and diced into 1-inch cubes (honeycrisp is my favorite)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or vegan butter sub 2-3 tablespoons apple juice for oil-free
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼-½ teaspoon ground cinnamon I like ½ tsp but you can add more or less depending on your prefercnes
  • pinch of sea salt optional


  • In a large skillet, warm the oil or butter over medium heat.
  • Add the apples, maple syrup, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes, until slight softened but not mushy. If you prefer the apples to have more of a soft texture you can cover them for about 5 minutes of the cooking process to soften them faster.
  • Serve immediately or allow to cool and store an airtight container for up to 1 week.
