These Apple Toasts are simple and delicious — they’re the perfect fall appetizer or dessert!
Can you tell that I’ve been on an apple kick lately? First, it was this Spiralized Apple Crumble. Then, this Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread. Then, this Ginger Carrot Soup with Apple and Cinnamon. And now, these yummy and easy apple toasts! I guess I like apples a bit too much. Whoops!
Don’t worry; I’ve got a new pumpkin recipe coming your way this week! Hint: it involves chocolate. 😉
So . . . apple “toast”! These toasts are probably the simplest thing you could ever make. Honestly, they’re probably simpler than actual toast. Here are the steps:
- Cut an apple into thin slices. This is the hardest part of the entire recipe.
- Spread the slices with nut butter and/or coconut yogurt and top with peanut butter cups, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, bee pollen, et cetera.
See? I told you these were easy. Plus, you can customize them to your liking. Allergic to peanuts? Use coconut butter cups. Hate bee pollen? Try raisins or cranberries on top. Do whatever you want! Case in point: I spotted some “pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds” at Trader Joe’s, and I just had to buy them for this recipe. They weren’t Paleo (they had cane sugar), but I didn’t care because they were the most delicious pumpkin seeds I had ever eaten. Basically
crack candy. So, the moral of the story is to top these apple toasts with whatever floats your boat! They’ll be scrumptious however you make them.
I included these two shots to show you guys a peek at my photography setup. See that Pyrex cup on the right there? That’s a dirty dish, sitting in my kitchen sink (I didn’t wash it for hours after I took these photos . . . procrastinator much?). Yes, I shoot almost all of my food photos in the little teeny space next to my sink because it has the greatest. lighting. ever. No joke.
You can also see both of my backgrounds, which I painted myself on two masonite boards with help from this tutorial. They were so fun to create, and I use them practically every week! The moody gray really helps accent the jewel tones in each recipe.
Okay, now that we’ve discussed photography backgrounds, let’s get back to apple toasts. Because you need these in your life ASAP.
Good thing they take less than five minutes to whip up.
