These Salted Caramel Apple Parfaits are the warm and comforting fall treat you’ve been waiting for. These parfaits are nut free, gluten free, and dairy free, and full of fall flavor. Store in a mason jar for a pre-portioned treat.
I have a serious love for parfaits. It wasn’t long ago that I was sharing the recipe for my summery AIP Key Lime Pie Parfaits, and yet, here I am with a fall parfait recipe.
I’m currently following my second “reset” of the Autoimmune Protocol, AIP, which is a nutritional protocol that focuses on eliminating common food triggers for those suffering from an autoimmune disease, like dairy, corn, soy, legume, gluten, and grains. If eliminating those foods isn’t already a buzz kill, AIP also eliminates a few more of my favorite foods like chocolate, coffee, nightshade veggies/spices, and nuts.
About two years ago during my first successful AIP experience, I identified 5 ways to rock the AIP transition. However, it took me all this time to realize that I missed a pretty crucial tool to have in your arsenal when planning to rock a successful transition into the diet – a plethora of healing, AIP friendly dessert recipes.
During this AIP reset, I decided to challenge myself by coming up with 1 new, healing, inflammation reducing recipe each week. So far on this self imposed challenge, I’ve created the AIP Key Lime Pie Parfaits I mentioned earlier, followed by AIP Sweet Potato Avocado Toast Bites, AIP Cranberry Grapefruit Cookies, and the perfect AIP Coconut Milk Matcha Latte. Which brings me to these Caramel Apple Parfaits.
With the fall and winter holiday season coming up, these AIP-friendly Caramel Apple Parfaits are sure to be included on my weekly meal plans. They’re so simple to make, travel well, and aren’t complete starch and sugar bombs – three reasons I love parfaits!
