Recipe Directions

1. Toss apple slices and lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside.

2. Process the pecans, almonds, coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, and salt in a food processor until coarsely ground. Transfer to large bowl.

3. Place dates, almond milk, coconut oil, almond butter, and vanilla in a food processor and blend to a paste.

4. Add to nut mixture and stir until well incorporated.

5. Spread the mixture out evenly on a teflex sheet into a square about 1/4 inch thick.

6 .Starting on one edge of the square, press the apple slices into the mixture, overlapping each slice over the previous one. I usually get 4 rows of apples.

7. Dehydrate at 115 F for 6 hours, then do a “flippy-flippy” or whatever method you use to get the bars off the teflex sheet and onto a mesh screen while staying apple side up.

8. Dehydrate for another 6-8 hours or until the desired texture is reached. Cut into bars and enjoy!

Crisyn's Thoughts

By Crisyn

This recipe is a variation on my Fig & Date Squares, combined with my love for Living Cuisine’s Caramel Coconut Cookies. I hope you like them.

In the picture, the Caramel Apple Bars are the ones on the bottom right.

(A “flippy-flippy” is what I call it when I place Tray B upside down on top of Tray A, and then flip them over, so the food from Tray A is then upside down on Tray B. Then remove the teflex sheet from Tray A, and place Tray A back upside down with the mesh screen touching the food on Tray B, then flip them back over, and voila! The food is back on Tray A--right side up--but minus the teflex sheet.)

The cookies on the left are Sugar Cookies, the recipe is from a From Seed packet. I just made some jam from cranberries, strawberries and dates, and used it to sandwich the pieces together.

Crisyn, I was inspired by your caramel sauce! I was craving caramel drizzled over some bananas ( a la Bananas Foster ) So I made your recipe but omitted the almond butter and added more almond milk for consistency. Soooooo Good. The bananas were an excellent sauce transporter! ;-)
