Crispy Cinnamon Apple Bites

 A bite-sized treat that’s sweet, crunchy, and packed with warm, diced apples. If you’re a fan of apple crisps, then these bites were made just for you! Top each crispy apple cinnamon bite with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream for the perfect fall dessert.


Apple Filling
1 cup apples, chopped
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Crispy Shell
¼ cup brown rice flour
¼ cup ARO vanilla whey protein powder
¼ cup gluten-free rolled oats
¼ cup coconut sugar
¼ cup walnuts, crushed
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
3 tablespoons water


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 12 mini silicone cupcake liners on a sheet pan and set aside.

2. Place apple filling ingredients in a small saucepan on the stovetop over medium high heat. Bring mixture to a bowl, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. When apples are tender, remove from the stovetop and set aside.

3. Combine the first 6 crispy shell ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix well.

4. Pour the coconut oil and water into mixing bowl, and gently stir until mixture turns crumbly.

5. Place about 2 tablespoons of crispy shell mixture into each cupcake liner, pressing the mixture into the bottom and sides of liners.

*You will have some mixture left over to top each bite with.

6. Evenly spoon apple filling into each cupcake liner. Sprinkle with remaining crispy shell mixture.

7. Bake in the oven for 14-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool then remove each bite from the liners. Enjoy!
