Paleo Caramel Apples

These sweet dairy free and Paleo Caramel Apples are the ultimate Fall treat that’ll take you right back to your childhood!

Paleo Caramel Apples

I still remember my first caramel apple because it wasn’t until I was in middle school when I tried it. Growing up in a Korean household, caramel apples were a foreign concept that I couldn’t even dream of. When I took a bite into one during an annual carnival in our town, my taste buds were pleasantly surprised at this delicious sweet treat.

Since then, I’ve had it a handful of times but definitely not in the recent years after going gluten and dairy free. Plus, caramel apples aren’t really something you come by often, unless you are at a fair or an amusement park. The ones you can buy at these places are usually milk based and contain corn syrup, so they are a no-no for someone like me. That’s why i was so excited about making these Paleo Caramel Apples, which are much healthier and easier on the digestion, without missing out on the flavors!

Paleo Caramel Apples

When you make this recipe, I highly recommend you make your life easier by following this method: Once you make the thick and sticky caramel sauce, transfer it to a small bowl just narrow enough to fit the apples. This makes the coating process much more effortless without having to tilt the apples too much.

If you like a bit of a crunch factor, you can dip the apples in your favorite nuts, coconut flakes, or even chocolate chips after coating them with the caramel sauce. I dipped mine in chopped toasted walnuts and I loved this combo.

I hope you try these Paleo Caramel Apples because you are going to love them, especially if you are an apple dessert lover!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Line a large plate or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Skewer the apples with popsicle sticks and if using, prepare a bowl of chopped toasted nuts or coconut flakes, if using.

  3. Combine coconut milk, coconut sugar, honey, cinnamon, and salt in a small saucepan, and heat over medium high heat.
  4. Let the mixture come to boil for 2 minutes, while whisking constantly.
  5. Turn down the heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. The mixture should reduce and thicken.
  6. Take off heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  7. Let sit at room temperature for 10-15 until the caramel sauce thickens further. I like to transfer my sauce to a small bowl narrow enough to just fit the apples for easier dipping while cooling.
  8. Dip the apples in caramel sauce, then into the bowl of chopped toasted nuts or coconut flakes, if using.

  9. Place the apples on the parchment paper. Transfer into the refrigerator for 1 hour or longer to cool completely.

  10. Enjoy!

 

Jack O’Lantern Halloween Deviled Eggs

Jack O'Lantern Halloween Deviled Eggs

I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween already! Are you all ready with your costumes and treats? I’m definitely not. I used to get excited about Halloween when I lived in New York City because it was such a huge deal there and I would always be invited to parties with my friends. Now that I’m living in suburbia, it’s much more toned down and most of the events are catered for little ones. I doubt I’ll dress up at all this year. Gosh, I’m so lame and boring.

However, I did make these cute (and maybe a little creepy?) Halloween deviled eggs that both kids AND adults will love. You know you’ll get plenty of sweet, processed treats everywhere you go, so why not sneak in this fun little snack at your party that’s full of healthy, delicious fats?

These Jack O’Lantern Halloween deviled eggs are great if you are doing a RESTART sugar detox program, Whole30, or if you are just looking for a healthier, sugar-free option. What I love most about deviled eggs is that not only are they tasty, they are filling and makes for a perfect snack. Instead of reaching for the processed candy, the healthy fat these Halloween deviled eggs contains can really help kill your sweets cravings.

And even if you aren’t a fan of deviled eggs, these are just so fun to make even with your kids, and people will love them at parties. You can be as creative as you want with the faces, and they don’t have to be perfect! I included some not-so-perfect ones in these photos to show that as long as they look like faces, it really doesn’t matter.

Hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbsp paleo mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp marinara sauce
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pitted black olives, for decoration

Instructions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Take out eggs straight from the fridge, then lower the eggs into the water so they don't break, and let it come to a boil again. Once it does, lower the heat, and let the eggs simmer for 11 minutes.
  3. Prepare a large bowl with an ice bath.
  4. Once the eggs are done cooking, place them in the ice bath for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Peel the eggs under cold running water.
  6. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
  7. Take out the yolks and place in a bowl.
  8. Add mayo, tomato paste, marinara sauce, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, and mash with a fork until fully combined and creamy.
  9. Fill the egg whites with the mixture evenly.
  10. Cut pitted olives into small triangles for the eyes, and wider triangles for the mouth, making teeth marks if you want more details. Use kitchen shears for better precision. Be creative, and it doesn't have to be perfect! Place on top of the filling to make faces.
  11. Refrigerate for up to 4 days.

Recipe Notes

There are many ways to cook hard-boiled eggs, but I found that this method makes the best, easy-to-peel eggs. You can boil it any way you like that works best for you!
