These caramel apple bites are an awesome healthy dessert! We have gotten used to having something sweet in the evenings and we really need to reel this in a little bit. Instead of having super sugary desserts I’ve been trying to think of healthier ways to satisfy that sweet tooth. I got the idea to make caramel apple slices from domestically blissful (hers look so tasty!). I wanted to make these vegan so that Eric and I could enjoy these together, so I decided to make a raw date caramel instead of using traditional caramel. These were super easy and very yummy. We originally planned on only eating two each….but….we ate them all.
To make the raw date caramel just add 15 pitted medjool dates to a food processor along with 2 tbsp of almond milk and 2 tbsp of coconut cream (alternatively add almond milk in substitute for the coconut cream). Process the dates until a creamy paste forms.
Cut the apples horizontally to obtain thick slices (I used a mandolin but you could use a knife instead).
Spread a spoonful of date caramel on top of the apples.
Heat up the dairy free chocolate chip and cashew butter (each with a little bit of coconut oil) in the microwave. Drizzle the chocolate and cashew butter on the date caramel. Top them off with some crushed cashews and you’ve got a delicious (but healthy) dessert.
