Raw Apple Holiday

Raw Apple Holiday

apples + peanut or almond butter + unsweetened coconut + raw pecans + chocolate chips = amazing.

Serve it at your next big event, share it with a friend, or enjoy it with a warm blanket and book.
This treat has the power to transform any day into a holiday.

 

Tips:

  • For easier drizzling, heat your almond/peanut butter on low heat prior to pouring it over the apples.
  • Splash your apples with fresh orange juice (prior to toppings) to prevent browning.
  • For added sweetness, try mixing organic almond or peanut butter with a little organic maple syrup and vanilla prior to drizzling your apples.
