  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

Preparation

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples (the pan will seem quite full, but the apples will cook down considerably) and cook, stirring from time to time, for 5 minutes.
  2. Add maple syrup and cinnamon; cook, stirring or shaking the pan from time to time, until the apples are tender and the filling has thickened, about 10 minutes longer. Stir in vanilla.
