Raw toffee apples

our healthy treat for autumn

· food,health,apple,raw

As cold evenings start to creep up on us, our cravings for treats can often be overwhelming. Who doesn't love a crisp sweet toffee apple whilst enjoying fireworks and bonfire nights?

At our most recent yoga brunch event, we made some decorated raw toffee apple slices and they went down a treat! We promised we'd share our secret recipe with you. Not only does this recipe only use natural sugars, apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber. And they're in season!

It is unbelievably simple, only using three key ingredients. There are many many ways to make a raw caramel or toffee sauce - how you choose make it all comes down to the flavours you want to bring out. .After much experimenting and tasting, my favourite recipe is below. It is vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

Feel free to change it up, and smother your apples in the sauce for a bonfire night healthy treat. Or or slice & dice for late-night snacks or even breakfast toppings:

Raw toffee apple slices

Serves around 6 people

Prep/cooking time around 10-15 minutes


Toffee sauce

Two large tablespoons coconut oil

4 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons of nut butter (almond & peanut work well)

Pinch of high quality sea salt

Splash of vanilla extract (probably no more than a teaspoon)

Other seasoning options to taste (cinnamon, nutmeg etc)


Whatever you wish!

I used chopped hazelnuts and cacao nibs


Place the coconut oil and maple syrup into a small pan on a low heat

Heat through until the coconut oil has melted and combined. This shouldn't take long, no more than a couple of minutes

In a small bowl, whisk this mixture with the nut butter until incorporated and smooth

Add in the vanilla extract and sea salt to taste

Drizzle the sauce on the toffee apple slices or use a glazing brush to cover the apples

If you are covering entire apples, it is worth popping them on a plate and into the freezer or fridge for a short time to firm up

Sprinkle your toppings onto the apples ensuring they are coated evenly

Pop in the fridge to set the sauce
