Peanut Butter Apples A La Mode

April 6, 2009

My boyfriend and I discovered this simple, quick and delicious dessert the other night and I just can’t get enough! We wanted something simple and sweet and natural so we decided on homemade apple sauce. We made a piping hot pot of stove top baked apples and served them with cold, creamy vanilla bean ice cream. But, I wanted something more…something richer. So, I added 1 tblsp of crunchy MaraNatha almond butter. The combination was divine. The nutty, thick, savory richness of the almond butter gave depth to the sticky sweetness of the ice cream and apples. It was like apple peanut butter pie a la mode in a bowl! You def have to try it!

That looks wonderful! I never thought about having a nut butter with applesauce. I’m craving homemade applesauce now!

That kinda looks like a odd combo so I’m sure it’d be right up my alley!! I’m going to have to try it next time we have homemade applesauce on the stove!!
