Cinnamon Apple Sauté (For One!)

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by EmmyG37

This sauté has some of the same flavorings of an apple crisp, but it's not nearly as heavy, and it doesn't leave me with a sense of guilt because it has less sugar and fat than traditional apple crisp. I love apple crisp - so I decided to create this dish: a lighter, easier version that I could cook for one (I'm a college student). Enjoy!

Super easy recipe, which I appreciate. Instead of cooking the apple in canola oil, I cooked it in 1 T. water. I also did not add the raisins as we don't care for them. Served on top of my breakfast oatmeal and it was very good.
