Breakfast is one of the hardest meals of the day for me to remember to eat. Usually, I am scrambling in my apartment looking for clothes, jumping in the shower and straightening my hair – so food really is the last thing on my mind.
However, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Skipping breakfast is strongly linked to the development of obesity. Studies show that overweight and obese children, adolescents, and adults are less likely to break the fast each morning than their thinner counterparts.
Studies show that skipping this meal can make weight control more difficult.
You really are not doing yourself a favor if you skip this meal on purpose or even when you forget or just are too busy. These baked cinnamon apples are great. They are quick and easy to make. This is something you can do in the morning while getting ready for work.
You will need: 1 apple, 1 tbsp. cinnamon, 2 tbsp. honey (maybe a little more) and a pinch of brown sugar.
First, I cored the apple – creating about 6 little apple pieces. Place the apples in a bowl and dump in the cinnamon, honey and sugar on top. Stir until all the apples are covered with this glaze goodness.
Preheat the oven to 375. Place the apple pieces on a cookie sheet. I lined my cookie sheet with foil. And bake for about 10 minutes.
Pull the apples out and enjoy this quick, delicious breakfast! And score – it’s gluten free.
