Get Ready For Fall…AMAZING Coconut, Apple-Cinnamon Treat!!

Apple_Coco-luscious

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 🙂

Ingredients:

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

Instructions:

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.

Enjoy!!
