cinnamon-roasted apples

these cinnamon-roasted apples might just be the easiest thing you'll ever make.  with just two ingredients, they are the perfect quick snack, breakfast-side or even dessert.

this recipe - if you can even call it one! - is a twist on a snack my sister hilary started making for helena whenever she would babysit.  sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar and baked. easy, healthy, fast & full of the flavors of apple pie.  what kid (or ahem, adult) wouldn't love that?  when i started making these cinnamon - apples i found that with the sweetness of the apple itself  i didn't need to add any additional sugar - cinnamon alone was enough.  

the perfect quick snack, these cinnamon-roasted apples are sweet and cozy - and make the house smell heavenly as they bake.  pair them with porridge for breakfast, yogurt for snacks and even ice cream for dessert - or on their own, of course! anyway you slice 'em, they are sure to be a family-favorite in no time!
