Ingredients

  • 3 apples sliced (try Gala or Courtland)
  • 3 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Optional Toppings:

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Slice up the apples thin enough so that it would be easy to eat the slice in one or two bites. Lightly spritz the apples with lemon juice to keep them from browning too fast. Evenly distribute the apple slices onto a large plate.
  • In a small bowl, mix almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together until it reaches a smooth, caramel-like consistency. Using a spoon or squeeze bottle, drizzle the almond butter mixture onto the apples.
  • Top with a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut flakes, sliced almonds, chocolate chips and chopped pecans (or any preferred toppings). Drizzle some additional caramel sauce onto the apple slices. Enjoy!

Notes

  • To prevent the apples from browning, spritz with some lemon juice mixed with water before adding the sauce and toppings or use one of the other methods suggested in post above.
  • For best results, slice the apples right before serving so that they stay nice and fresh.
  • You may wish to add a bit of water to the "caramel" mixture to thin it out a bit and make it easier to drizzle over the apple slices. Start with one tablespoon and adjust to achieve desired consistency.
  • Make up a larger batch of the caramel sauce to eat throughout the week. You can even keep it in a squeeze bottle in the fridge. That way, when ready to serve, you simply have to chop up the apple slices, drizzle on the sauce and top with all the things.
