Just, on average, how many apples, would you say, that actually get completely eaten in your family?  I think we’re a solid 50%.  It could be worse, I suppose.  So, we’ve had to come up with lots of creative ways to use up the grungy half-eaten apples.

Apples are a great source of pectin, a source of soluble fibre, which is great for constipation (stewed apples are fantastic for this, for all ages, plus you can add some healthy fats and warming spices too).  They’re also rich in quercetin, a flavonoid that offers anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and may help to reduce allergy symptoms (like hay fever), along with vitamin C.

Try these ideas when you’re stuck with too many half-eaten apples!  Collect and prepare the apples in the evening to enjoy these recipes for breakfast the next day.

  1. Spiced Stewed Apples
  2. Apple, Banana, Chia, Date Breakfast Cookies (Alphabet Breakfast Cookies)
  3. Apple Banana Pancakes
  4. Oat and Apple Breakfast Slice
  5. Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Keep the skin on your apples to get the most fibre.
