Ingredients

  • 2 large green apples
  • 2 large red apples
  • 4 tablespoons of your chosen spread e.g. 100% peanut butter, nut butter or hazelnut spread (see recipe below)
  • {HAZELNUT SPREAD} makes 3/4 cup
  • 1 cup lightly toasted hazelnuts 

  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia oil or coconut oil

Method

Step 1

Cut the apples either side of the core into 5mm thick slices and pair up similar sizes. -

Step 2

Spread the apple slices with your chosen spread and sandwich together. -

Step 3

Use a ‘festive’ cookie cutter to cut out the centre of the apple sandwich. Don’t throw this cut piece out, it’s just as nice! -

Step 4

{HAZELNUT SPREAD}
Add the hazelnuts to a high-powered blender or food processor. Blitz for a few minutes or until you have a sticky dough-like consistency. Add the remaining ingredients and process until you have a smooth chocolate spread. Keep in a sterilized glass jar in the fridge for 1 – 2 weeks. -

Step 5

Storage: the apple sandwiches are best served immediately as the apples will begin to brown.
For a nut free alternative, try cream cheese instead of the nut butters/spreads. -
