Trick or treat?!? In the "spirit" of Halloween, we browsed the internet in search of a healthy, vegan, yet traditional, treat. When we stumbled upon Fork & Beans' recipe, we couldn't wait to try it for ourselves. Ergo, after a couple of adaptations, we made these "Squaramel" Apples, and man are they scary good!!! Trust us, this recipe is sure to put a spell on you, it's unBOOlievable... okay we'll stop! But really, they're mummy, oops we mean yummy!! Plus, they don't get stuck in your teeth (i.e. braces friendly!). No tricks here folks, just treats!
p.s. Happy Halloween from our spooky Square Kitchen to yours!
