Caramel Apple Pie For Two

This ‘pie’ is one of the best desserts I’ve made….

It is so rich and decadent, and super low in sugar!

Originally I was just going to have apples and caramel to dip them in, but once I got started, I couldn’t resist creating this pie. It’s easy enough to make in a pinch and delicious enough to share with a loved one….or not…. ;-)

CARAMEL APPLE PIE FOR TWO

CRUST

1/2 c. raw walnuts

1/2 c. dried figs

pinch salt

Process all until it resembles a meal. Press into a small dish.

APPLE FILLING

1 small apple, chopped

2 t. ghee, butter, or coconut oil

1 t. maple syrup

1/2 t. pie spice

pinch salt

splash vanilla

Heat fat in a small skillet. Add apple, maple syrup, pie spice, and salt. Saute all for about 5 minutes, until apple is softened. Stir in the vanilla. Cool a bit and pour onto crust.

CARAMEL

2 T. raw almond butter

1 T. maple syrup

1 T. olive oil (or melted butter or melted coconut oil if you’re concerned about smoke points)

1 1/2 T. almond milk

pinch salt

Whisk all into it resembles a thick syrup. Pour into a shallow non-stick skillet. Heat until it begins to bubble. Turn down the heat, and let the mixture simmer for 1 minute until it begins to thicken and darken. Turn off the heat, and let the mixture sit for a few minutes on the warm burner. Pour atop the apple filling.

This would be great with some coconut whipped cream and a few toasted walnuts for garnish! It is so easy to make and super delicious! I wish I could give out samples to everyone to prove it! :-)

      Thanks Antonia! Let me know if you try it out! If nothing else, you have to try the caramel part and just dip some apples in it!

    Hmm… That caramel apple pie looks so gooey and sweet! Actually though, I think your cinnamon apple banana rolls look even better. Can’t wait for a recipe!

    I love desserts that don’t have a ton of leftovers. And I love apple pie. Great idea!

      I agree! It’s so tempting to overeat when it comes to dessert, so it’s nice to have just a few bites made. :-)

    That caramel apple pie looks delicious! And that’s such a good idea to hide the veggies under the cheese… I’ll have to remember that for when I have kids in the future!

      Haha, lately she’s getting wise to my tricks…she’s been separating the cheese from the bread and pulling the veggies off!…the little devil!

      Thanks girl! I’m not doing the best with dates lately, so it was figs or raisins! Raisins seem very polarizing, so I went with the figs. :-)
