An EASY recipe to make cinnamon apples in the Instant Pot. Three ingredients and just 10 minutes to cook!
I was not originally planning on sharing this recipe tonight. Nope. My plan had been to share a list of awesome audiobooks for Christmas. But that post is now getting bumped another day.
Tonight, while reheating leftovers for dinner, I recorded a short and sweet Facebook Live video showing how to make cinnamon apples in the Instant Pot. And seeing everyone’s enthusiastic response to this simple dessert (or side dish– I would totally serve this next to macaroni and cheese or Brussel sprouts), I wanted to write up a quick recipe for you to pin and print (if that’s your thing).
I LOVE dessert. I love whole ingredients. I love quick and easy. And I especially love when all of those things come together in the perfect harmony of delicious sweet treats that do not keep me on my feet long after dinner when the couch is calling my name.
Well, actually, at this time of day it is more likely a small child is calling my name, drowning out the call of the couch until they are finally coerced to go to sleep.
The entire video I recored was only 4 minutes if that tells you anything. (What it should tell you is that the prep for these cinnamon apples in the Instant Pot only took about 3 minutes). From start to finish, the apples took 10 minutes to cook.
Dessert anyone? Or breakfast. That works too.
Instant Pot Cinnamon Apples
3 apples (we like gala)
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
1 heaping tsp maple syrup
1. Peel, core, and slice the apples. (I use this tool that does it all at once!).
2. Combine apples, cinnamon, and maple syrup in the Instant Pot. Pour in 3 Tbsp water. Stir quickly to coat the apples.
3. Cook on high pressure for 2 minutes. Quick release. Serve immediately or remove lid and keep warm until you’re ready (up to an hour).
