Apples Fried in Butter Topped with Yogurt, Sprouted Nuts, Raisins, and Maple Syrup


If you are looking for a show-stopper dessert that is super-easy to make, this would be it. A lovely combination of sweet, crunchy, and savory, it reminds me of a expensive confection you’d find in a fancy restaurant.

It’s probably one of the most delicious treats I’ve ever eaten, and simple enough that you can put it together in minutes.

This would be a fantastic Valentine’s Day treat and it’s really hard to believe this sinful-tasting dessert is so healthy – if you make it for your guests, they’ll never know!


  • Apples
  • Yogurt
  • Granola or sprouted nuts
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter, coconut oil, or ghee
  • Sea salt


  1. Use any type of apples you want; I used Pink Ladies. You could probably also use pears. I sliced them up almost razor thin – using about 1 1/2 apples for my husband, son, and me. This made what I would call a small amount for each of us (we had just eaten a big dinner, so a small dessert was in order). You could use more fruit for more people.
  2. Then I fried them in butter (or you could use ghee or coconut oil) with a bit of salt just until browned in a pan.
  3. After cooking the apples, I spooned about 5 or 6 tablespoons of yogurt into bowls.
  4. Next, I added the apples and sprinkled my homemade granola mixture over them.
  5. I drizzled a bit of maple syrup and a few shakes of cinnamon over the whole thing. That’s it!

Both boys loved it and promptly made it disappear. I think they would have eaten 10 bowls if they’d had the chance.
