This recipe has become a family favorite around here. My little one called it coco-lishious when he took his first bite, so I took it a step further and called it coco-luscious! The name can be deceiving…This recipe does not have cocoa in it, it’s rather short for coco-nut…I felt compelled to share that for some reason 🙂
When I found this amazing recipe on PaleOMG, it was an instant favorite, I loved it, but I had to add a little sweetener and vanilla to my complete liking (if I must be honest). It really tastes like a fall treat and a wonderful snack when your craving something sweet, minus the guilt.
This recipe has opened my appetite to the flavors of possibilities 🙂
1 Tbs coconut oil for sautéing
2 green apples, cored, peeled and diced
1/2 C coconut butter (click here for homemade) softened
3 Tbs coconut oil, melted
1-2 Tbs maple syrup or local raw honey
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of unrefined sea salt
1. Sauté apples in 1 Tbs coconut oil for about 5 minutes or until soft, don’t let brown.
2. If coconut butter and/or oil is hard, place in a stainless steel mixing bowl and place over a pan of boiling water to soften/melt.
3. If your coconut butter and oil are already soft/ melted, place in a mixing bowl and add the ingredients in order – sweetener, cinnamon, salt, cooked apples – mixing with a fork each ingredient one by one well before adding the next.
4. When the ingredients at all blended, place in a greased muffin tin or cup cake paper and place in fridge for 20 minutes or until hard before eating.
These need to be kept cool or else they might melt.
