Nutritional Value:
Apples are a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C. Apples contain a long list of phytonutrients that function as antioxidants and support our heart health. Included in this list are quercetin, catechin, phloridzin and chlorogenic acid. Apples also contain flavonoids, which have repeatedly been shown to help lower risk of heart disease, and also to improve problems with heart disease once it has occurred.

Apples may help maintain good healthy by promoting cardiovascular health by lowering LDL cholesterol and inhibiting LDL oxidation, and reducing the risk of certain types of stroke; maintaining a healthy weight, as part of a low-fat, fiber-rich diet; promoting lung health, by countering the effects of oxidative damage; promoting prostate, liver and colon health, by inhibiting the growth of related cancer tumors; and promoting bone health, by providing a good source of the dietary mineral boron

Additional Information:
This sweet treat takes only 5 minutes to make. I made it for our couch time this evening after dinner and after putting J to bed. Just as I finished making it, the phone rang… it was my Significant Other’s good friend, Tue Mantoni. They had made arrangement to talk already yesterday, so I couldn’t complain. Arrrrggghhh. So I ate one slice (couldn’t resist it) and put the rest in the fridge. While waiting for my Significant Other to finish his telephone time, I am using my time to post this recipe up.

If you are tired of eating apples, why not try this recipe to spice up your apples. It is very easy to make and delicious too :-) I adapted this recipe to my taste from The World’s Healthiest Food website (see link below).

P.S. Oops…I accidentally sprinkled too much cinnamon powder on one of the slices as shown in the picture.
