It all began in Grandma Hoerner's kitchen in the late 1800's or should I say the orchard. Duane her grandson then wanted to perfect the recipe that he inherited from his grandmother with firm apples and the sweetest fruit juice sauce imaginable! Sixteen flavors to be exact!
In 1987 Duane reinvented his grandmas recipe which was like no other product out there in the market.
In 2001 Grandma Hoerner's foods INC. tackled the cross country trek from the California coast all the way to the Midwest !
In 2014 Regina MCCoy co owner and Vice President took BigSliceapples global!
I came across these apples one day in Target and just had to try them out! Which lead me to their website when I came home, I couldn't stop thinking of the yummy looking flavors that are all in a tiny snack able pouch! I love fruit especially apples! I had to review them to share with you all on Losing Weight My Mission, Maybe it's the crunch or the sweetness of them who knows all I know is this they are delectable and infused with all kinds of sweetness throughout!

Cinnamon French toast:
When I saw this flavor I immediately thought apple cinnamon pancakes to whip up! I gathered all the ingredients from the fridge and pantry and got to work on these flavorful decadent pancakes!
The pancake mixture:
1. 1/2 cup of Bob whole wheat oatmeal
2. 1/2 cup of organic cottage cheese
3. Two organic eggs
4.washed and diced up an organic apple into bite sized chunks
5. 1/4 cup of organic raisins
6. A sprinkle of cinnamon
I grabbed a mixing bowl poured the batter of the cottage cheese, oatmeal and eggs and mixed in the apple chunks and raisins then set the pan out onto the stove with a hint of cooking oil then carefully poured the mixture onto the pan and waited in anticipation for them to cook up!
When they were done I tore open the cinnamon French toast apples and poured them on top of the pancakes as a syrup and it was divine! The flavors of the apples, cinnamon and the hint of sweetness from the raisins altogether was like eating a decadent dessert but completely guilt free and healthy!
I've been experimenting with overnight oats which make a powerful breakfast and this cherry vanilla mixture just screamed overnight cherry vanilla oats! I came across a recipe on Pinterest from healthy_italian which you can find her recipe here healthy_italian
and couldn't wait to test it out so I gathered all the ingredients that I would need to whip up this breakfast concoction! I topped it off with two tablespoons of my favorite organic vanilla yogurt and a frozen organic cherry then some of the cheery cherry mixture of apples, cherries with the essence of vanilla! I can't wait till breakfast for sure to dig in!
