3–4 apples (I like Granny Smith or Rainier), cored and sliced in half from top to bottom
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
2 dashes allspice
1 dash ground cloves
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds (roasting optional)
lemon juice (to fill 8×8 glass baking dish)
2 soft dates, pitted and sliced
Optional first step – lay cored and sliced apples face down in lemon juice in the baking pan. Bake for a few minutes to let the lemon juice seep into the apples. Remove from oven and proceed with filling apples with caramel.
Combine almond butter and maple syrup in blend and mix on medium to high speed until blended.
Add sea salt, cinnamon, allspice, and ground cloves and continue blending.
Pour caramel mixture into the center of each apple.
Set in baking dish right side up.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.
After baking, top with sliced almonds and fresh fruit.
If you do include the dates, add them when you mix the almond butter and maple syrup together, blending until smooth. This may take a little while longer. I keep my blender on a slow, steady speed until I get a smooth, rich texture.
