Carob Apple Butter Spread
With just five ingredients, our quick and easy Carob Apple Butter Spread recipe gives this winter favourite the needed healthy upgrade. Carob powder is used instead of brown sugar while keeping apples as the true star.
- 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 2 tbsps The Australian Carob Co. Roasted or Raw Carob Powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pure and real vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
In a medium-sized, non-stick frying pan or small saucepan, cook the apple sauce on medium-low heat to reduce the water content. Stir frequently with a heatproof rubber spatula.
When the apple sauce is reduced and starting to thicken, mix in the carob powder, cinnamon and salt, stirring well and often with the spatula.
Continue simmering until the sauce starts to feel like it is congealing and thick for a spreadable consistency.
Stir in the vanilla and keep cooking and stirring as the alcohol evaporates from the extract.
Transfer to a ramekin or small jar and let cool.
Serve on gluten-free or other healthy crackers or toasts.
Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
