No Bake Apple Pie Cookies

Tonight after dinner we wanted a sweet but healthy treat. This is what I came up with: my version of a no-bake apple pie cookie that sets in the fridge but is solid at room temperature and doesn't have to live in the freezer. Enjoy!

No Bake Apple Pie Cookies
Makes 8

1/4 c almonds
1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 c coconut sugar
1c rolled oats
3 Tbsp solid cacao butter, melted
2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
9 pieces thinly sliced apples, peeled and cored
Pinch cinnamon and coconut sugar for dusting

Places almonds in food processor and process until fine crumbs formed. Don't leave this unattended for too long or you may get almond butter. Add shredded coconut and coconut sugar and process until very fine crumbs. Add 1/2 c rolled oats and process until fine crumbs.

Add salt and cinnamon.  With processor running, add melted cacao butter, coconut oil, and peanut butter.  Process until well mixed. Form into 8 even discs and place on parchment-lined baking sheet.

Put in fridge while you prepare the apple slices. Top each disc with an apple slice and sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar. Set in fridge or freezer for 5-10 minutes. Store in fridge or in a cool place.
