Apples with Healthy Caramel Dip


I make these delicious dessert bars with a caramel layer and I thought what if I use this recipe as a dip for apples. I'm totally 3 months late with this recipe since caramel apple season was pretty much October but it's never too late to eat this caramel sauce. OMG, it's so yum and absolutely free of preservatives, dairy and chemical crap.


I bought organic apples at Trader Joe's yesterday because I wanted fruit that I don't normally eat. I'm a berry gal and I really have to be in the mood for an apple. They are delish, of course, but I'd rather eat a bowl of berries or some dates with peanut butter, though I have really chilled with my date consumption. Apples are great to take with you so you can grab it in the middle of a hectic day and chow down before the hangriness takes over. But I've never super enjoyed munching on just an apple, I usually like dipping it into peanut butter or dressing it up somehow. Cue this caramel sauce. It's decadent, full of fruit and healthy fat and is a great dip to serve at a party.


This recipe makes two servings so beware of this if you are counting calories or watching your fat intake. It's two servings of peanut butter and about 2.5 servings of dates. I bought little apples so I only needed a little bit of the sauce; I saved the rest for later. The pictures for this recipe are dark because it's currently cloudy. I wish the weather would cooperate when I want to photograph a new recipe 😙

Check this:

8 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup of peanut butter
4 tbsp of coconut oil or filtered water


Add everything to your food processor and process on high. Add more water if the sauce is too thick. Spread on your apple or dip and enjoy! Refrigerate the leftovers in a glass, airtight container.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
