NATURALLY SWEETENED Apple Pie Sundae! Tender cinnamon apples with Coconut Ice Cream
Let’s get started with an apple pie sundae, shall we?
This naturally sweetened apple pie sundae is what we go for when we have a craving apple pie but don’t actually want to make a whole pie (namely the crust)
Simply peel and slice apples and cook on the stovetop with a little cinnamon and (coconut) sugar until tender, and then turn up the heat at the end to slightly caramelise. Works like a charm. It’s the perfect way to get your apple pie fix in 30 minutes.
All that’s left is scooping up your Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream or Coconut Whipped Cream. We’re so close that we can taste it.
Caramel sauce is completely optional but does send this sundae over the top. Either thin Date Caramel on the stove top with a little maple syrup, or go for my Coconut Sugar Caramel Sauce! It’s insanely delicious, naturally sweetened, and perfect for just about every dessert you can think of.
We hope you all love this sundae! It’s:
Quick to make
& Insanely delicious
Consider this the perfect dessert to make good use of all those apples. Because it comes together so quickly, it would be totally suitable for weeknights but is special enough to be reserved for weekends or hosting as well.
- 1 cup (100 g) raw pecans
- 1 Tbsp (30 g) coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp (12 g) coconut sugar
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- Pinch sea salt
- 4 medium-sized ripe green or red apples (I used 2 granny smith, 2 gala)
- 1 Tbsp (15 ml) coconut oil (or vegan butter)
- 3 Tbsp (36 g) coconut sugar, plus more for topping (or sub organic brown sugar, cane sugar, or stevia to taste)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more for topping
- 1/2 tsp fresh ginger
- 1 lemon, juiced (~2 Tbsp or 30 ml)
- optional: 2 tsp arrowroot or cornstarch for thickening
- 6-8 scoops Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream
- 1 batch Coconut Whipped Cream
2. When the oven is preheated, bake pecans for 7 minutes. Then remove from oven, top with coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt and toss with a spoon or spatula until evenly coated (I like doing this in the pan to save time/mess, but you can also do this in a mixing bowl).
