Goodness gracious great apple roll-ups! These little gals are SO FREAKING GOOD! I came up with this the other morning when I had a little extra time on my hands before work, so I made myself a cinnamon-sugar apple quesadilla for breakfast. I thought that something similar would make a great dessert or snack, if just done a little differently. And then BAM! Rustic Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Apple Roll-Ups were born in my brain!
So last night we decided to try this idea out for dessert. Best thing about this? It’s easy and fun, and takes relatively little time.
We threw some almonds and earth balance in the food processor to make quite literally, almond butter, and then stirred in finely diced apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. We spread this mixture onto the most fantastic tortilla ever invented (thick whole wheat tortillas from the Sacramento Foods Co-op), rolled it up, sliced it, and put it in a glass baking dish. Then we drizzled a little grapeseed oil on top and a bit more brown sugar (for funsies).
Next came some super hot oven lovin’ (three hundred and fifty degrees for about fifteen minutes, then up to four hundred and twenty five for a few minuts of crispiness action) and then came INHALATION!!! I mean… dainty eating with a fork and a knife, of course!
