Hey Happy Tummies!
I went home for the weekend for……a BABY SHOWER for my sister-in-law!! And it was SO much fun!! We threw a Gluten Free Baby Shower!! I’m going to do a big post on it later this week, but I wanted to share one of the things I contributed to the glorious spread at the party….
And can I tell you, these were the hit of the party?!
Yep…a Gluten Free, Vegan, SCD and Paleo cookie!
Apple Pie Bites!
These crunchy little bites were sweet and spicy and utterly delightful!
Here’s what you need: (makes 35 bites)
¼ cup almond butter
½ cup almonds
½ cup cashews
2 pinches of salt
1 cup of baked apple chips
2 ½ cinnamon
30 almonds, whole
30 almonds, halved
¾ cup baked apple chips
Put everything (minus the additional ingredients) into your food processor and process until it becomes like course sand. Then, add in your additional 30 whole almonds and ¾ cup apple chips. Pulse several times. (You want them to remain somewhat chunky for texture.) Finally, stir in your 30 halved almonds. Form balls out of 1 rounded tsp. Chill for 30 minutes. Makes 35 bites.
Holy cow! What a delicious little cookie!! Not only are they cute, but they are SO tasty! They taste just like apple pie! They’re spicy from the cinnamon, and have a fresh, sweet flavor from apples!
And they’re crunchy and chewy, and I LOVE them chilled! I’ve clearly hopped on the “raw cookie” train….but they’re just so incredible, I can’t resist!
And our party guests loved them too! They were the first item we ran out of! They were gone in about 7 minutes!!
Don’t forget to check back later this week for my special post on throwing a GLUTEN FREE BABY SHOWER!
This recipe utilizes my favorite kitchen appliance, the food processor! Here’s the one I use and love
