CLL patients can try this cinnamon baked apple recipe to gain the health benefit of boosted cancer-killing immune system cell function thanks to the high-antioxidant food granny smith apple and the spice cinnamon which decrease excess oxidative stress. See here for more about the health benefits of decreasing high oxidative stress.  

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Baked Apples 

Total time: 35 minutes (prep 5 min, cook 30 min) 
Serves 2


  • 2 large Granny Smith apples
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove most of the apple's core except for the bottom portion to keep ingredients inside
  2. Place 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of butter into the center of each apple 
  3. Place the apples in a shallow baking dish and sprinkle with cinnamon
  4. Bake for 30 minutes
  5. Serve as is or with ice cream made with cane sugar (not refined sugar)

*Food items made with cane sugar are recommended over those made with refined sugar because refined sugar causes high oxidative stress whereas cane sugar does not.
