The first time I discovered ‘grated’ apples, I was in heaven.

Nope, they don’t taste much different than whole apples, or apple slices. In fact, they don’t taste any different.

But since I am the queen of boredom, switching it up to apple shreds thrills me.

Up there you see a whole wheat bagel, topped with peanut butter, greek yogurt and caramelized grated apples.

 

 

To make the apple shreds, grate an apple (skin and all) and press out the moisture with a paper towel. Heat a skillet on medium heat. Season the apple shreds with a bit of salt and a boatload of cinnamon. Saute until caramelized and delicious.

 

 

You know what else apple shreds are delicious in (or on)? Pancakes. Waffles. Cookies.

Eat up!

    Sounds amazing! Plus, shredded apples cook faster, which means less waiting for deliciousness :)

    from the last post:
    I wish I could swim and shower in margaritas.

    YES this is why we must live together or at least live closer! Girl. I could tell you some stories! Omg.

    This post, shredding and grating and then carmelizing down apples…you are so smart. THIS is going to be made by me, once i unpack my pots n pans. YUM

    That’s different! I bet it tastes and smells delicious!! I think the yogurt needs to be whipped cream, though. :P

    I’ve never thought of carmelizing an apple–I love how carmelized onions turn out, so I bet this would be a great switch up to something sweet! Good thinking!

    That sounds like a fabulous way to get some extra fruit intake! Would’ve never thought to grate them…or put them ontop of the bagel w/pb! Great idea!
