While I was waiting for my friend to come over to make dinner, I thought I would make a quick snack. Since I am still living at home and travel during the work week, there isnt too many paleo snack options in the house. I did, however, find natural apple sauce, almond butter, coconut milk and raisins. So I thought hmmm what can I whip up with this? I decided to add it all together and heat it up and see where that took me. I added all the ingredients in a sauce pan and let the apple sauce, almond butter and coconut milk simmer. Then I added some cinnamon, vanilla and almond extra. OMG. So freaking good. I threw in some raisins in for a little sweetness. I can honestly say it came out 100% better than I imagined. Since the mixture was a little on the sweet side, I think it would be perfect for a desert or anytime you craved some sweetness. Since, I threw it all together, I don’t really have a specific recipe, just taste as you go and add what you like. I will definitely be making a huge batch of this once I finally hit up the grocery store tomorrow. Anyways, a rough estimate of the recipe is below, let me know what you think!
- 2 cups apple sauce
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- Handfull of raisins
- Teaspoon cinnamon
- splash of vanilla
- splash of almond extra
- Add apple sauce, almond butter and coconut to a sauce pan and simmer over low heat
- add cinnamon, vanilla, almond extract and raisins
- let it cool and enjoy!
Note: I think this recipe would be even better with apple, banana or other fruit chunks. I will a little low on produce, so maybe next time.
