This was something I came up with in trying to find a sweet snack that was low fat, quick and easy. After getting it just right, I offered samples to the meat eating men in the house and they all said it tasted just like caramel apples! They were right. It was gone in about 5 minutes. You may have to play with it to get the consistency you want.
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
4-5 raw dates
squeeze of lemon juice
1/4 of vanilla bean seeds or 1 tsp vanilla (If you use the bean, let mixture set for a bit to meld flavors.)
Process seeds in a food processor, then add dates, lemon juice, and vanilla. Mix well until dough like ball forms. I liked it thicker because it was a lot like caramel. Spread mixture onto apple slices and enjoy!
