  • 16-20 pitted prunes, depending on their size (160 grams)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Place the prunes in a small saucepan.
  • Add the water, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, until prunes are soft and swimming in syrup.
  • Cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. This allows the syrup to thicken and flavors to develop. Serve alone as dessert, or spoon on top of plain Greek yogurt.
