Mauimama recipe healthy snack

I know how important it is to feed a healthy children’s snack to my son, food that will give him the nourishment his body needs to grow into a strong vital man. I want to give my children the best head start in life that I can give them. For me that means living an organic vegan lifestyle with exercise, play and of course community sharing with other families and children.

Being a vegan, organic, predominantly raw food chef for over 18 years, I have figured out how to get those important nutrient dense foods deliciously into the tummies of my family and everyone else I serve. It is a great passion of mine; to combine excellent health with excellent taste.

Bringing vitality into the lives of our loved ones is slightly more expensive, but think about it… wouldn’t you rather pay upfront for creating health and preventing disease than pay later with sickness, hospital bills and drugs? Health is Wealth! Not to mention the bad moods and energy swings that are apparent in an unhealthy diet and lifestyle that bring so much negativity into family life. It is easier in the long run to just be healthy from the start!

Here is a quick, delicious and recipe for a healthy children’s snack, great for the season, that kids love (and adults too!).

Caramel Apple Chips
Print Recipe
1. Core the apples and slice into thin apple chips (leave the skins on - that’s where most of the nutrients are!). Place apple chips on a plate like rays of sunshine. 2. Drizzle raw almond butter over the top of the apple chips, make sure every piece of apple gets a little almond butter on it. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top of the almond butter. 3. Take the seeds out of the medjool dates, chop into small pieces and sprinkle on top of the apples. Sprinkle the Hunza raisins on top as well. Serve to happy little hands and watch how fast the Caramel Apple disappears! Yum!

Ingredients
  • 1-2 crisp organic red apples
  • 1-3 tbsp raw almond butter I am aware of how much more expensive the raw almond butter is compared to the toasted… it is worth it! The taste is more delicious, but more importantly, any time you dry cook (bake) or fry anything in oil, carcinogens are created (carcinogens are those things that create cancer in your body). When you cook, it is healthiest to steam, boil or sautee’ in water. It is so totally worth it to buy the raw almond butter - you are worth it!
  • 8 Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup organic Hunza raisons Optional.
  • 1 pinch sea salt
