Apple Butter Spread

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites
Apple Butter Spread is a great staple to have in the fridge.  It is wonderful on breads, crackers, in smoothies and even in porridge recipes.  Not to mention just eating it just by the spoonful when the munchies set in.   The ground chia really helps this spread to set up.   I used Pink Lady apples which really lends a scrumptous sweet taste.  So when you make this recipe just keep in mind that the type of apple that you use will effect the flavor.   You also may need to adjust the sweeteners that you use.


  • 3 apples, cored, peeled, rough chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground clove
  • pinch sea salt
  • 5 tsp chia seed, ground to a powder in small grinder
  • 2 Tbsp raw agave nectar
  • 2 Tbsp date paste


  1. Process all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.  The butter will thicken as it sits due to the chia.
  2. Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 5-7 days.

Serving Option:

  • Trim the top and bottom of an apple and hollow it out with a spoon or melon baller. (McIntoshes are easy to scoop.)  Brush the inside with lemon juice, and fill with almond butter or  apple butter.  Serve with sliced apples for dipping.

    Great spread! I just made it and we love it, even the baby had a good taste for it ;). I added also 1 tsp of Ginko Bilboa, good for memory and brain function, and added date honey (sugar free) instead of agave.
    I love your recipes, it is my favorite raw food site. Amie, you are such an inspiration. Thank you.
    greetings from austria!

    Absolutely delicious! I recently found your site in a Raw Food Magazine issue. This, along with the Apple Cinnamon crackers, was the first recipes I tried and they are both wonderful. My husband and father are now viewing your web site and putting in their requests for what they would like me to try next :-) A wonderful site. Thank you for making it available.

    • amie-sue says:

      That is just wonderful Christine. :) Both of the recipes are great choices. I hope to hear from you as you try other recipes and to see if they get a thumbs up from you husband and father. Have a blessed holiday, amie sue

    Do you think this will freeze well? Lots of windfall gravensteins to cut out good parts and this seemed like a good candidate for those chunks.

    • amie-sue says:

      Gosh, not 100% sure, I would worry about it getting watery when thawed. I would make a regular batch to eat and then just freeze a small portion for a day and then see how it thaws. Keep me posted if you try it :)
