  • Start the ghee warming in a saucepan.
  • Peel, remove the cores, and chop up the apples.
  • Mix the cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins, nutmeg, almonds, and water to the saucepan and gently stir.
  • Bring the mixture to boil until you see it start to thicken.

  • Continue to cook at medium heat for a few minutes while gently stirring as the sauce thickens.
  • Reduce the heat and allow the apples to cook for a further 5-8 minutes until the apple slices are tender.

There you go. Two easy, quick recipes that use apples and spices for an early morning change of energy to set you up for the day.
