Recipe Card


  • 2 medium-large apples, diced
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut or avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon butter (coconut)


  • Step 1

    To make the caramel sauce, combine coconut milk and coconut sugar in a pot on the stove. Heat on medium to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer for 35-40 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

  • Step 2

    While the caramel is simmering, sauté the diced apples over medium in oil and 2 tsp cinnamon. Sauté for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

  • Step 3

    Once caramel sauce has thickened enough to stick to the back of a spoon and darkened, stir in vanilla and butter and combine with apples and remove from heat.
