Easy raw caramel apples with only a handful of healthy ingredients! The possibility for toppings are endless. Vegan and paleo friendly too!
I used to dread making caramel sauce. It was really temperamental and there were all these things that could go wrong. Cooking it too long would make it hard as a rock. Not melting all of the sugar completely would turn it into a grainy mess, and what I did on more than one occasion, burning it…such a bummer 🙁
Every once in a while the sugar mixture would actually turn out, which meant it was time to stir in a bunch of butter and heavy cream. Then I’d proceed to gain a few pounds after licking the spoon, which had what seemed like a bazillion calories 😉
Well, I found a much better way to get my caramel fix—raw date caramel! Is it the exact same as the caramel made with sugar, butter, and heavy cream?! No. But, I think that it’s pretty close. So close that if I had to choose between the two, I’d pick the one made with wholesome ingredients any day. It’s delicious AND much healthier. That’s always a winner in my book!
The possibilities for toppings are endless! Chopped nuts, toasted coconut, and CHOCOLATE are always great choices…but really, when is chocolate ever not a good choice?! I mean, seriously, can’t even think of one.
They’re not only delicious, but they’re also super simple to make. I’m talking less than 5 ingredients and less than 5 minutes simple. Yeah, that means you could actually be eating this in just a few minutes…
Well, what are you waiting for? Go make you some and don’t forget to take a pic and tag me on Instagram so I can see your creation!
