Just 2 ingredients is all is takes to make this healthy, fake-out caramel dip. With sliced apples, it makes the perfect after-school snack!
I promise you that we are not living on pumpkin and apples alone over here, although it make seem like it based on the recipes I’ve been throwing at you the last few weeks. What can I say? I’m embracing fall and all its fantastic flavors.
So this dip. Two ingredients. Mix. This hardly qualifies as a recipe. But it’s just too good not to share. The first time I tried it, it was a happy accident. I wanted a quick fruit dip for Luke and mixed two pantry ingredients I had on hand: tahini+maple syrup. It was love at first dip. Luke and I were fighting to clean the bowl with our apple slices.
Seriously, my first thought was, “This is caramel dip!” I’m aware that this is not real caramel dip. Caramel=sugar+cream. Whatever. When you mix together tahini and maple syrup it tastes like caramel without any refined sugar or dairy. Boom.
In case you don’t know, tahini is sesame seed paste and you can usually find it in the “ethnic” section of most grocery stores. It’s a good source of iron and calcium. Snack away!Print
I told you it barely qualifies as a recipe. Just know that it’s equal parts tahini and maple syrup. The amount pictured is what the recipe calls for, but you can certainly make a bigger or smaller batch.
I’m still reading through your survey responses. Thanks again to those who took the time to fill it out. I will be compiling the results this weekend and will share them with you next week.
