Methodbased on 4 servings
1

Place dates in boiling water and set aside for 15 minutes.

2

Strain dates, reserving the liquid.

Blend dates and half the liquid with coconut oil and cinnamon until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Transfer to a soup bowl and cool to room temperature.

Spear the apple with a skewer and dip into the date-caramel mixture.

Alternatively, for a more kid-friendly snack: chop apples into wedges first, and serve with caramel dipping sauce, almonds and chopped chocolate on the side.
