Apples dipped in almond butter could be one of my all time favourite snacks. This recipe is a spin on that and a dairy free version of something I used to eat all the time using cream cheese and brown sugar. The dip tastes just like the topping of a cinnamon bun which lets be honest, is by far the best part it.
This dip tastes like fall in a bowl. The soaked cashews are blended with a simple combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, almond milk and honey until smooth and creamy. I like to toss chopped walnuts or pecans into the dip for a bit of added crunch.
I love having this for breakfast in the morning but I think that it would also make a great after school snack for kids. You can also spoon some of the dip onto bananas, pears or peaches, or for an easy dessert, serve it on top of oven baked apples.
