Raw Vegan Caramel Apples
This is my last Vegan MoFo post and I tell you it has been quite a ride!
I "met" some wonderful bloggers and discovered some awesome recipes and techniques. Thank you MoFo team and all the MoFoers out there!
Now on to the apples. When I first made this sauce and tasted it, I thought it tasted good, but not as caramely as I wanted. When I smeared it on an apple and tasted it though, it tasted awesome! Something about the apple really brings out the caramel flavor. I'm sitting here having some it on soy creamy ice cream and it tastes pretty darn good like that too! Try it and let me know what you think.
1/2c almond butter
10 medjool dates soaked
2tbs lacuma powder(Caramel, malty flavor that adds natural sweetness)
1tbs mesquite powder(Rich and smokey molasses type flavor. Great to balance blood sugar levels.)
1/4tsp sea salt
2tsp vanilla extract
4tbs almond milk
Put everything in blender and blend until smooth.
I dipped the apples in it and smoothed it with a spoon. Then I put various toppings on that. Coconut flakes, almond pulp(from almond milk I made that night) and chocolate chips.
I also cut up some apples and put a bowl of the caramel with it for dipping.
Have a Happy Halloween!!
