Preparation

Apple Compote:

  1. Put the cubed apples, water and lemon juice in a heavy saucepan. Toss them gently for a minute so that they absorb the lemon juice. Place the saucepan under medium-high heat.
  2. When the mixture starts to bubble, reduce the heat to low and cover. Allow to cook whilst gently tossing the apples. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the apples are tender and to your liking. For extra sweetness or flavor, add sugar and/or cinnamon and toss over the heat for another two minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Let the apples cool and then store them in fridge in a sealed container. Enjoy cold or heated. The compote will keep for 4 to 5 days in fridge.

Apple Chia Puddings:

  1. In a medium-size bowl, add the almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir with a fork until all of the seeds are dispersed. Then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Take out and give it another stir so that the mixture will gel evenly. Pour into 2 cups or jars, cover and allow to chill for at least one hour or overnight in fridge. Give puddings a final small stir in the cups and add the toppings.
  3. Top with granola and apple compote. You can also drizzle some maple syrup on top. Enjoy!
