Apple Pie Bites
Now I doubled the recipe. Because like the picture below it looks like this would make only 3. I was right.
1 large apple (your choice of variety, I like Gala and Braeburn)
3/4 cup coconut butter (aka. coconut cream concentrate)
1/2 cup walnuts (optional – soaked and dehydrated is best, or nut of your choice)I used cashews
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tbs.honey or maple syrup (optional – to make sugar free, you can use stevia – about 1/4 tsp. liquid works well)...
1 1/2 tbsp. apple pie spice
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 tbsp. coconut oil or ghee for cooking
.Finely chop your apple (you could also shred it if you wanted). Heat your coconut oil or ghee over medium heat and add the apple and walnuts (if you’re using). Cook until the apple starts to soften. Turn off the burner and add the coconut butter, shredded coconut, sweetener (if using), apple pie spice, vanilla, and sea salt, and stir until combined. Spoon into whatever container you like. Mini muffin tins / cups work great. You could also use regular muffin cups or even spread the mixture into a pan and then just cut it into chunks later. Stick the mixture in the fridge to cool. If you’re in a hurry, like I usually am, you can pop them in the freezer. Serve cold or at room temperature. They are delicious both ways, but I fin d that the flavors are much richer when allowed to warm up a tad. They won’t completely melt, but they will get pretty soft. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer....
