  • 7 large Granny smith green apples (see note 1)
  • 1 tablespoon Monkfruit Sweetener (White)
  • 1 tablespoon Tap water
  • 1 tablespoon Lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon Mixed spice
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cloves


  • Peel apples into chunks, making sure to get all the peel off from the edges
  • Chop apples into bite sized chunks, about 2cm x 2 cm or ½ inch squares
  • Add chopped apples a pan on stove on medium heat, along with all other ingredients. (don;t use a lid on the pan)
  • Cook for 12 minutes or until fragrant and apples are starting to soften. (Make sure to put a timer on). Stirring every couple of minutes to ensure apples cook evenly through.
  • Taste apples to see if they are cooked to your liking after 12 minutes, if not cook for another couple of minutes.


  1. Apples:  Granny smith apples are a tart green apple commonly sold in supermarkets in Australia.  Other apples that would work just a s well are Baldwin, Cameo, Cortland, Idared.  These are all varieties of tart and crisp apples that hold thier shape well during cooking and baking.
  2. Monkfruit:  I used classic white monkfruit sweetener which is a sgranulated sweetener that measures like sugar.  Granulated stevia or any other granulated sweetener that measures like sugar could also be used.
  3. Spices:  any spice combination may be used, ginger is also another popular option.
  4. Storage:  Store apples in an air tight container in the fridge for 3 or 4 days.
  5. Serving:  Serve with sugar free custard, or sugar free ice cream.
