Apple Pie Bites
- 2 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
- 1 small apple (peeled and rough chopped)
- 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp Monk Fruit Syrup or Maple Syrup
- 2 tbsp ghee (melted)
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Pinch salt
- 1 cup pecans (ground)
- 1 tbsp monk fruit sweetener (or sweetener of choice, coconut sugar for Paleo)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- pinch of cinnamon
- cup ⅓maple syrup
Add all the apple pie bite ingredients to a food processor, the almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, apple (peeled and rough chopped), monk fruit syrup, melted ghee, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Turn the food processor on and combine together until the mixture becomes a dough like consistency and is completely combined.
Roll the dough into 12 golf-ball sized balls and place on a plate or baking sheet.
Place 1 cup pecans, cinnamon, monk fruit sweetener or coconut sugar to a food processor. Process until the pecans are ground, but be careful not to over blend. (It shouldn't be a powder like consistency, leave it a little chunky.)
Transfer the ground pecan mixture to a bowl and pour the maple syrup In a shallow bowl. Carefully roll each ball into the maple syrup then into the ground pecans and place on a plate.
Enjoy immediately or chill in the fridge in an air-tight container. These can also be frozen for up to 3 months by storing in a freezer proof container.
Why do you have to use both almond and arrowroot flour?
Yes it is important to use both of these flours.
Almond flour tends to have more moisture than wheat flour, so reducing the amount of liquid and fat and adding a starch or even coconut flour can be helpful.
Can I substitute coconut flour if I’m allergic to almond flour?
Coconut flour is particularly absorbent and sucks up a lot of moisture. Replacing coconut flour for almond flour (or grain flours) requires that you adjust the amount of liquid and eggs added. For this recipe you could do 2 cups coconut flour with 1/2 cup arrowroot or tapioca flour.
