Oil-free Apple Spice Compote



  1. Over medium-high heat warm 1/4 cup of the apple juice in a deep skillet. Add the apple chunks and raisins and sauté until soft, but with still a little bit of firmness.
  2. In a small measuring cup, whisk together the remaining apple juice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cornstarch and spices. Stir this into the apple chunks and let bubble until the mixture thickens.
  3. Serve immediately with the hot pancakes.
