No-Bake Apple Crisp with Caramel Sauce (Vegan and Gluten Free)
But I think a little maple caramel sauce would be very welcome here, don't you think?
Fork and Beans)
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup pecans
3 dates, pit removed
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 apple, sliced thinly
Juice of 1 lemon, about 2-3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Caramel Sauce, to top
In a microwavable bowl, add the apple slices, lemon juice, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Mix around, then set aside.
In a food processor, add the dates, water, coconut oil, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Pulse until the dates are minced. Add the almonds and pecans, and pulse until there are no large pieces remaining, but don't mix too much, otherwise we're going to have nut butter.
Microwave the apples for 1:00 intervals, stirring around as needed until all of the apples are soft.
In two ramekins, or small bowls, add 1/4 of the nut mixture into each and press to form a bottom crust. Layer 1/2 of the apples into each ramekin, and top with the other 1/4 of the nut mixtures. Drizzle with caramel sauce, and serve immediately.
