2 Apples & sticks
- Slice into pieces that fit into mini muffin pan liners.
- ½ cup (6-8) Medjool Dates (pre-soak in filtered water x 20 minutes & drain)
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- ¼ tsp Sea Salt
- ½ tsp Vanilla
- 2 Tbsp Almond Milk (room temp)
- 1 Tbsp Maple syrup
- Chopped nuts (I used pecans)
- Shredded coconut
- Chocolate chips
Chocolate Dip: Optional
- 1/3 Cup of Vegan Chocolate Chips
- 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- Blend dates, coconut oil, salt, and milk together until smooth.
- Cover apples with caramel mixture.
- Dip into chopped nuts.
- Place into pre-lined mini muffin pan.
Chocolate Glaze Directions:
- Melt chocolate with coconut oil over low heat in a saucepan.
- Dip or drizzle chocolate onto apple bites.
- If you run out of caramel mixture for the dipping, you can use almond or peanut-butter for the coating & then dip into your toppings. Second option is to just dip into the chocolate and then your toppings.
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
