Apple Pie Bites! (Paleo, Vegan & Gluten Free)

What a special day! My mom is in town, visiting me in NYC!

I am super excited to have her here in the Big Apple. We’re almost at the one year anniversary of her stroke, and what better way to celebrate her recovery than a mother/daughter weekend. — Well, aย midweek-weekend. If that makes any sense…

ANYWHO.

OK TIME FOR SOME COOKIES!

I originally made these bad boys for my sister-in-law’s baby shower.

And well…that baby is now a darling 4 year old. But these cookies have stood the test of time. They were the hit of the partyย then, and they’re still a party stand-byย now.

Yep! A Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, and Specific Carb Diet friendly cookie!

1/4 cup Almond Butter
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews
2 pinches of salt

Directions:
Put everything (minus the additional ingredients) into the food processor and process until it becomes like coarse sand.

Then, add in your additional 30 whole almonds and additional 3/4 cup apple chips. Pulse several times. (You want them to remain somewhat chunky for texture.)

Finally, stir in your additional 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 tasteย justย like apple pie! They’re spicy from the cinnamon, and have a fresh, sweet flavor from the apples!

And they’re crunchy and chewy, and Iย loveย them chilled! Simply incredible.

Bet’cha can’t eat just one ๐Ÿ™‚

Alright, that’s all for tonight! My mom and I are off on an adventure in the city! I’ll fill you in tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

OK, Really quickly, I wanted to just share with you about this whole “Like to Know it” thing you’ve seen me posting on Instagram. It’s actually really cool. You download and follow me in the app, and then whenever you see my photo with that LTKI watermark in the corner on IG, you screenshot it on your phone. Then when you log into the app, that screenshot will automatically show up! And then it will give you all my outfit details and where you can get them, AND send you an email with a list of all the links! It’s pretty cool if you ask me. Literally the future of shopping. Not that I have like, amazing fashion sense or anything haha…but it was pretty neat to get the chance to join!

Here’s an example of the watermark!

Alright, that’s it for me! Thanks for reading & have a great night! xoxo

  1. I’m a sucker for apple pie things oh boy haha! Can’t wait to make these as soon as I get back home (aka return to an actual kitchen where i can actually cook!) And maybe I’ll make them to bring to holiday parties as well as they’re so simple to make!!

    1. Thanks! Oh these will def be a hit at the parties! They were devoured in literally 7 minutes when i brought them to one this year! Haha Hugs and love xox

  2. The meals look simply delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for sharing the recipes with us. I literally was trying to taste an apple pie bite with my hand. Sorry, I know; technology hasn’t advanced that much yet. Lol. Thank you so much for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Aw thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ hahah i do that too with buzzfeed recipe videos. Where is that screen-to-hand technology when we need it?!! Hugs and love xox

  3. What a blessing your mom visiting! I needed a smile this morning and that did it, so thank you :):) I’ve always been a fairly healthy eater, open minded to eating and trying lots of different foods, but never really been one to see “Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, and Specific Carb Diet” recipes and thought mmmmmmm I want to make that hahaha but you are winning me over. Praying your visit with Mom will be one to remember, and full of blessings for you both :):)

    1. Hi Margaret! Yes! Such a blessing indeed. Thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚ hahha i know, Right!? You just have to get a little more creative! Thanks for your prayers, it means a lot. Know that youโ€™re in mine too! Hugs and love xox

  4. Yum! Iโ€™m stuck in my dates/almonds/carob chip rutโ€”Iโ€™ll have to try these! What do you think about using real apples instead of the chips? Think itโ€™ll make the substantive too watery?

    1. Thanks Lauren! Oh thatโ€™s an interesting idea! Yeah it may be more of an applesauce consistency, but worth a try! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs and love xox
