This may sound a little unusual, but trust me, the flavour combination really works and makes a wonderfully satisfying snack that can be stored for ages and is perfect for staving off hunger pangs.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 apples
1 teaspoon cinnamon
black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 110°C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Slice the top and bottom off the apples, then cut them into slices, removing the core section as you go. Put the apple slices in a bowl and sprinkle over the cinnamon and a pinch of black pepper bit by bit, tossing continually to ensure all slices are coated.
  3. Place the slices on the prepared baking tray and bake for anywhere up to 2 hours, until crispy. Ovens do vary, so check regularly to see when the desired texture has been achieved. Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container.

Good for:

  • High cholesterol, constipation

Star ingredient:

  • Apples are great for anyone with high cholesterol because they contain a soluble fibre called pectin. This, like the beta glucan found in oats, can bind to cholesterol in the digestive tract and carry it away through the bowels.
