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
1/2 c. raw walnuts
1/2 c. dried figs
Process all until it resembles a meal. Press into a small dish.
1 small apple, chopped
2 t. ghee, butter, or coconut oil
1 t. maple syrup
1/2 t. pie spice
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.
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
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!
