So the count down to Passover 2014 begins! Our big sedar is at my mother-in-law's next Monday. So I have for you a yummy Kosher for Passover recipe!
The only time I ever hear Adam complain about too much chocolate is Passover. In order to make up for all that he is missing out on for 8 days, I usually bake up a whole slew of rich, chocolate-based desserts. Although he is usually enthusiastic at the beginning, eventually it all becomes too much for him.
I will be making some chocolate Passover recipes, but I decided to make one that includes one of his other favorite dessert flavours: apple! It also contains no quinoa. Adam is not a huge quinoa fan, but because its been deemed kosher for Passover, I tend to make it a lot every year.
Don't worry, I will still be posting some chocolate and quinoa recipes for Passover, but this one is first on the list.
Gooey Caramel Apple Slice (for Passover)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil, cooled a bit
1 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1.25 lbs apples, peeled and sliced*
1 dropper full of vanilla stevia (optional)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp konjac flour or arrowroot starch**
Whisk together the oil, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Mix in almond flour and salt. Spread evenly into a square 9x9 parchment-lined baking dish. Toss apples with remaining ingredients and spread over almond mixture. Bake in the oven at 350F for 35-40 minutes. Let cool. Using parchment paper, lift out of baking dish. Serve plain or with vanilla yogurt or ice cream. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days or freeze.
*I managed to find a bag of already peeled, frozen apples at the grocery store, which cut down the time required dramatically.
**If you can't find konjac flour at your health food store, you can buy it online or use the arrowroot starch.
