This recipe is ideal if you’re looking to help promote a healthy gut flora and bowel regularity, plus its a Hormone friendly recipe too. You can eat this daily for breakfast or at least 4 days/ week. I add some coconut yogurt and a few soaked almonds to it.
- 6 Bramley cooking apples,(or apples of choice preferably grown organically)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup raisins/sultanas
- 2 tsp. cinnamon, as usual make sure its Cylon cinnamon and not cinnamon bark.
Peel and core the apples then chop them into small pieces. (Peel on a few apples can be kept on for added fibre).
Put all the ingredients in a covered, heavy-bottomed pan and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring regularly. Cook until soft with rough shapes, no longer identifiable as apple slices. The colour should be a russet brown with the cinnamon effect.
These may be eaten warm, or cold. I suggest making up as many ramekins (sized to hold 1 – 1.5 apple equivalent in each), then cover and put in the fridge for easy availability, enjoy for a happy healthy gut.
