Whole30 Warm Sautéed Apples with Caramel Drizzle
We like to think of this apple dessert as a healthier, deconstructed version of apple pie.
This warm, sweet, and spiced Whole30 apple dessert is so simple and light, it deserves a spot in your everyday rotation. You're basically cooking apples with cinnamon, then drizzling them with some velvety, syrupy sweet sauce. We like to think of it as a deconstructed apple pie.
Because there is no added sugar in this recipe, it's best to choose ripe, in-season apples if you can, since they'll have the most natural sweetness. The combination of coconut cream and dates yields a sauce that tastes just like caramel, but leaves you feeling good.
