Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

  • Coconut oil: Butter can be used as a substitute
  • Maple syrup: Honey can be used as a substitute
  • Peanut butter: Other nut butters such as almond butter or cashew butter can be used. You can also use sunflower seed butter or chocolate hummus for a nut free alternative.
  • Apples: You can use your favourite apples, I like to use crisp sweet apples such as pink lady apples, envy, eve, fuji, jazz or honey crisp apples. A tart Granny Smith apple also works well.
  • Toppings: I used a mix of chocolate dots, mini chocolate chips and coconut, but you can use your imagination when it comes to the sprinkles you use. Some ideas include: Granola, raisins, chopped nuts, cranberries mini marshmallows, sprinkles, hemp seeds, honey roasted sunflower seeds.
