Hi everyone -
Another 'festive' celebration is here. So here is are your allergy-free sticky toffee apples Sophantastic style.
How do I achieve these goodies?
Grab 2 x granny smith apples
Boil for 10 minutes
Choice of chocolate or 'toffee' coating.
For the chocolate grab some 'Just' chocolate easily found in the Free From aisle and add to a bowl 2 strips with a tsp of water. Microwave until melted ( more water may be needed ).
Once melted dip you apple in the bowl of melted chocolate.
For a toffee coating grab 200g of coconut sugar and 2 x tbsp of maple syrup and a dash of apple cider vinegar. Add sugar to the hob, and add 25ml of water, dissolve sugar watching closely, once dissolved add vinegar and syrup and roll/dip your apple into the sticky syrup.
Place in the fridge once toppings are added and enjoy whenever you are ready.
Here is the fun part!
I will leave it totally up to yourselves how you top your apples as everyone is different and my recipes are always a base, where you can add your own touches and tastes to them.
Allergy-free topping ideas:
-Crushed nuts (of course if you have a nut allergy avoid!)
-Marshmallows by Mallows they have a vanilla flavor and a strawberry.
-Choco chips - Free From.
-Goody's Goodstuff sweets.
There are many more but above is just a few ideas - if you aren't gluten and wheat intolerant you can also use crushed Oreo's as an option.
I hope you all enjoy Bonfire night and remember having allergies shouldn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun.
Thoughts & comments:
Who picked chocolate? Who picked toffee?
I chose chocolate!!
I added crystallized ginger to one of my apples to fit in with the autumn seasonal theme and coconut, raisins and crushed nuts to the other.
I can't wait to dig in a little later.
What sweet treats are you all loving right now? Comment and let me know. I am always looking for new products to try.
Love and peace to all xo
