Instant Pot Cinnamon Apples – Great for Snack, Breakfast, or Dessert!

A few years ago, our oldest ordered cinnamon apples at a restaurant and he was hooked.  They were buttery, cinnamon-ny, and delicious. I wanted to recreate these easily at home, so I made Microwave Cinnamon Apples. (< click for that recipe!) Fast forward a few years and thousands of apples later, I am all about the Instant Pot. While I would still rank the microwave cinnamon apples a little easier with less cleanup, the Instant Pot Cinnamon Apples are pretty awesome, too. And they are good if you are concerned about using a microwave.

First things first, gather your ingredients.  Any kind of apple will work.  I have used Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith, and Honey Crisp. They are all delicious!

In addition to your apples, you will need cinnamon and water, and also your choice of sweetener.  If you are using Honey Crisp apples, you may not even need any sweetener.  You can use coconut sugar, white sugar, stevia, maple syrup, honey, or whatever else you love to use.  Just don’t add the honey until after your apples are cooked.



It is low effort, maximum taste with these instant pot cinnamon apples!
