Apple pie.

There is nothing better on a cool fall day than a piece of warm apple pie and ice cream. Well, in my book there's nothing better. I'm sure some would disagree. 😉

Seeing that I am gluten and grain free, as well as watching my sugar intake, I rarely indulge in treats like that. I also have yet to find an allergen friendly apple pie recipe that really “hits the spot”.

So, in an effort to create the apple pie flavor, in a small, portion controlled, low sugar version, I came up with these apple pie bites. The recipe was inspired by a recipe that I saw on PaleOMG earlier this year.

They make the perfect little treat for when I want something sweet, but want to avoid excess sugar. Most of the time, I make these unsweetened, even omitting the stevia, as I find the coconut butter has enough natural sweetness when paired with the apples. But, if I'm making them for family or friends, I'll add some honey or stevia in there to jazz it up a tad.

Coupons for Coconut Cream Truffles Recipe Ingredients

I am always asked about my favorite ingredients and what I use in my own kitchen. I have linked to the products from my affiliate partners that I personally use and recommend. All funds earned go to help support the maintenance of this site and free content. You can view it like leaving a tip. Thank you! 🙂 And now, here are the special coupon offers that select affiliate partners are currently offering:

  • Thrive Market: If you sign up through this link, you will get 15% OFF your first order.
  • Amazon, of course, has everything you need for this recipe. Their prices are often very good, though I love to shop around and sometimes find that Thrive Market has better deals. If you like saving money, it's good to shop around! 🙂
  • I get all of my herbs and spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. I have tried so many other brands and have never found the quality, flavor, and aroma to be as good as the herbs I get from Mountain Rose.

PLEASE READ!!!! Quick note about “coconut cream concentrate” and “coconut butter”, since I get asked this all the time.

Whenever I refer to those two terms in my recipes, it means the product that is super finely ground coconut meat, which has a consistency similar to a nut butter. It's not referring to coconut milk or coconut cream (the liquid beverage-type products), and it's not referring to those vegan “butters” that often use coconut oil in them.

You cannot substitute dairy butter for coconut butter, nor can you substitute coconut oil for coconut butter.

Please read this post where I talk about coconut products in detail and clear up the common confusion with ingredient names.

Also, the texture of the cookies may vary depending in the brand(s) of coconut products you use. I have found in my years of cooking that there can be a big difference between brands of coconut products and how they work in recipes. For this recipe, I found I got the best results when I used coconut cream concentrate from Tropical Traditions and coconut flour from my local health food store. If you find that your dough is too dry, just add a tablespoon or two of coconut milk (or milk of your choice) to the mix until you get the right consistency.

Learn How to Make Perfect Ice Cream (and Other Frozen Treats) at Home

Ice cream is the quintessential dessert. I mean, I can't think of a single person that I've ever met who doesn't like ice cream. While not everyone is as passionate about the cold, creamy, sweet concoction as I am, I am betting that if you're reading this, you probably enjoy a frozen treat of some sort every now and then.

If so, then I have the PERFECT resource for you today.

I am crazy for ice cream, but I find that there are very few commercial ice creams that I can eat. I can't do dairy, so that scratches a good 75% of them off the list. And the non-dairy options either taste funny, have too much sugar, or have weird gums and additives that my poor gut just doesn't tolerate.

So, what's a gal to do?

Master the art of making her own ice cream at home, that's what!

And create I did and The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook was born! This is one of my best-selling eBooks because I arm you with everything you need to make your own perfect ice cream (or other frozen treats) at home any time you want. 

And I do it all with real food ingredients, no refined sweeteners, not gums, not stabilizers. No junk here.

Oh, and I also have made the recipes allergen-friendly and even adaptable for stricter healing diets (like the AIP).

So, if you are ready to master the art of making your own ice cream at home, this is the perfect book for you. Don't let another special occasion or hot day in the summer pass you by watching everyone else enjoying cold treats while you sit on the sideline due to your dietary restrictions.

No more!
