The thought of eating, let alone enjoying, a dessert that contains caramel are usually considered a gut-busting, nap-inducing, Instagram-worthy… better break out the stretchy pants type of dessert.
But not this one… as long as you enjoy it within moderation. Yea, I know. Nobody wants to hear that word. But let’s be realistic.
If we are going to eat sweet treats, then lets make each ingredient count. So, without invitation, I am going to dive right in. Almond butter contains healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E.
Maple syrup contains calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus sodium, potassium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and B6. And our last major contender in this recipe are dates… good ole Medjool dates are considered lower glycemically because of their high fiber content.
I want you to feel good about the foods that you put into your tummy. I don’t want you to eat with regret and fear. Those emotions will negate any health benefits of the foods you eat.
So, onward…. I made this sauce to combine it with another recipe that I was creating. I ended up with a small bowl left over. The minute I turned my back, the bowl disappeared along with an apple. I found Bob in the corner, dipping his apple slices into the caramel sauce. He was in another world, a world that only consisted of caramel, apples and himself. I decided to give him space and allow him to savor his treat. He polished off the bowl, patted his tummy and moaned in pleasure. I took that as a good sign…this recipe is a keeper!
