Apple Paleo Cheesecake with Caramel
This paleo cheesecake is literally sitting on the table staring at me right now.
Luring me in with her crispy, crunchy, golden brown crust that is the foundation of a velvety smooth and INTENSELY creamy cashew layer, mixed with warm, cozy cinnamon flavors, rich notes of sweet coconut sugar, buttery ghee and that STICKY, DRIPPY caramel topping with tender, spiced apples.
Internet friends. If the fact that I am using my hands to type words to you, and NOT using them to pick up this cheesecake – no utensils REQUIRED- and shove it in my mouth, is not proof enough that I love you dearly… I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS.
By now you’ve learned of the love-affair that I have with turning cashews –> cream –> adding healthy-real-food ingredients like flax, apple sauce and natural, wholesome sweeteners –> GRAIN FREE CHEESECAKE.
Liiiiike. NO CREAM cheese but A-L-L the CREAMY.
In my mind, there are 2 dessert flavors that make me think of the coziness of fall in food-form: pumpkin spice (liiike, duh) and caramel apple. Realistically, I also think that caramel apple should be a “like, duh” but for some reason all the people of the world just HONE in on pumpkin spice ALL THE THINGS, and I feel like things like caramel apple healthy gingersnap recipes just doesn’t get the <3 <3 <3 that they deserve.
Considering we just ate chai gluten free pumpkin cheesecake, it was time to bring the cashew-cheesecake obsession into the CARAMEL APPLE territory.
