Ingredients

Coconut oil

Cinnamon, to taste

Coconut flakes (enough for a sprinkle on each serving)

Apple Noodles with Toasted Coconut

Instructions
1. Spiralize your apple, using the attachment that makes thin spaghetti-like noodles.
2. Melt about ½-1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. (If you’re making multiple apples, add more oil as needed).
3. Sautee your apple noodles in the coconut oil until softened & warmed through.
4. Add cinnamon (to taste) and stir to combine.
5. Once your apples & cinnamon are finished, remove from skillet and set aside on your serving plate.
6. In the same skillet over medium heat, toss in your unsweetened coconut flakes and allow them to get toasty & brown (keep your eye on them, don’t let ’em burn!). The flakes will pick up the leftover cinnamon bits & apple juices, making them the perfect topping!
7. Top your apple noodles with the coconut and enjoy!

  1. Well my favorite thing to do with Michigan apples I to make my moms and my favorite apple cake. It is very simple and DELICIOUS! Here is how you do it four cups of peeled and sliced Macintosh apples (about 4 or 5) add two cups of sugar let stand for one hour mixing occasionally then add one cup of oil (canola) two teaspoons of vanilla and 1 cup or a bit more of chopped walnuts and three eggs. Mix together then add 3 cups of flour (one at a time) 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of soda. Put in a greased and floured bunt pan bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until the toothpick comes clean. Flip out of pan onto cooling bake rack let sit for at least 15 minutes then cut and enjoy. You can add confection sugar to the top but the cake must be completely cool to do that. Enjoy I promise this will become your favorite fall cake too. You can also switch the apples for pumpkin, bananas and even zucchini but the zucchini is better in in a 9×13 pan never a bunt….
