I’m not sure why- but for some reason, I’ve never thought to roast fruit. Grill it? Yes.
Veggies only, duh.
Except, now I know how much I’ve been missing. Roasted apples are—stop it. Too good. What?! Who knew.
A little kitchen experimento, gone right this week. Too right, because now I can’t stop putting them on everything- smoothies, salads, or just straight up snacks. Try it!
Roasted Apple + Walnut Parfaits
Makes 2 servings
1 large apple (a sweeter variety)
1/2 cup walnuts
2 cups organic greek whole milk (or coconut) yogurt
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons coconut oil/olive oil
pinch of sea salt
pinch of chia seeds
drizzle of maple syrup (optional)
Chop apple into bite size pieces. Toss with olive/coconut oil, LOTS of cinnamon and sea salt. Roast at 400 till slightly browned (approximately 15-20 minutes).
Layer a glass with Greek (or coconut) whole milk yogurt, chopped walnuts, chia seeds and apples. Repeat for another layer.
