Peanut Butter Candy Apples
Servings: 4
Time: 5 minutes

  • 4 honey crisp or pink lady apples
  • ½ cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup crushed nuts & seeds (optional)


Chop the dates and put into a high power blender with the water, coconut oil and pinch of salt.  Blend until it becomes as smooth as possible, then add in the peanut butter and continue to blend.

Put a stick in the bottom of your apples and coat them with the peanut butter candy mixture.  If you want, you can roll the apple around in some crushed nuts & seeds (pumpkin seeds and/or black sesame seeds would be awesome) to create a fun texture.

Place the apples in the fridge for the candy coating to firm up.  Enjoy your treat!
