Cooked Apples with Cinnamon Whipped Cream and Granola

Sautéed Apples with Cinnamon Whipped Cream and Granola

Here in Florida, fall is slower to arrive than in more northern states.  We bake in the intensely humid heat of September and long for the first whiff of cool air to arrive.  That anticipation for fall can come in the form of making all kinds of fall recipes before fall truly arrives.  I reach for the apples and pumpkins while the temperature still reaches the 90s.

For today’s recipes, I’ve taken my love of apple crumble and made a simplified version that uses sautéed apples with a ready made granola topping.  It’s garnished with a dollop of cinnamon whipped cream, just to make it perfect.

Bear Naked Sea Salt Caramel Granola and Cooked Apples

I used the newest Bear Naked Granola flavor, Sea Salt Caramel Apple Granola, for this recipe.  It’s an excellent choice for fall, with its sweet and salty flavor profile.  Plus, it’s filled with dried apples and pieces of toffee-like caramel, giving it a wonderful range of different textures.  Perfect for pairing with sautéed apples.

I picked up my Bear Naked Sea Salt Caramel Apple Granola at BJ’s Wholesale Club.  You can find it on the cereal aisle.

Author Recipe for Perfection

Ingredients

  • 2 medium apples cored and sliced, I prefer Honeycrisp or Pink Lady / Cripps Pink
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 cup granola

Instructions

  1. Place a mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer to chill.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet on medium low. Drop in the butter and let it melt and bubble gently. If it sizzles audibly, the skillet is too hot.
  3. Add the apple slices and toss to coat. Sprinkle on the brown sugar and toss again. Let cook, stirring and turning the slices occasionally, for about 10 to 15 minutes. Apples are done when they are easily pierced by a fork. Remove the skillet from heat and set aside.
  4. Remove the chilled bowl and whisk. Add the whipped cream and whisk briskly until soft peaks are formed. Add the cinnamon and keep whisking until cinnamon is completely incorporated.
  5. Divide the apple slices between 4 serving dishes. Sprinkle with an equal amount of granola, then top with a dollop of cinnamon whipped cream. Serve immediately.
