Ingredients

  • 3 large apples, peeled and chopped into small pieces; pink ladies are our favourite

SUGAR: 25.6g

Method

  1. Place the diced apples into a medium saucepan, add the vanilla
    and sugar, along with 5 tablespoons of water. Stir everything together and bring to a gentle simmer for 10 minutes. Once the apples have softened and become translucent, add the grated ginger. Stir well and cook for a further 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the apple
    to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. To serve, split the yoghurt between 4 bowls and spoon over a couple of tablespoons of apple compote. Finish with a sprinkling of your favourite granola. We use the granola from our caramelised banana porridge with nutty granola banana recipe.

If you are trying to keep your weight up, you can use full-fat Greek yoghurt instead to increase the calories of the dish.

Experiment with different types of yoghurt to see what you like – natural, Greek, kefir. Each has different nutritional values, so check the label to make sure it’s meeting your needs.
