Total time
Serves: 1 serving
Dairy-Free Pumpkin Caramel
  • 1 apple
  • 1 date, chopped
  • 1 cinnamon stick
Dumpling Dough
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree or So Delicious Dairy Free Cultured Almond Milk
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour (sub with oat flour + 1 to 2 tablespoons coconut flour for gluten-free)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional; makes it extra fluffy)
  1. Combine all of the pumpkin caramel ingredients in a small bowl, adding enough milk beverage so that the mixture is thin and liquid in consistency.
  2. Core your apple (be careful not to cut all the way through the apple), and place it on a microwave-safe dish. Spoon one spoonful of the pumpkin caramel in the bottom of the apple and add the chopped date and a cinnamon stick.
  3. In another bowl, combine all of the dough ingredients until smooth (If you go the route of using the oat flour and coconut flour, it might help to place the dough in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes so it will be easier to work with). Press the dough into a large square. place the apple in the center of the dough, and gently wrap the dough around the apple until the apple is covered with the dough. Return to the dish and microwave 2 to 3 minutes or until fully cooked.
  4. Drizzle with some pumpkin caramel before serving and enjoy as is or a la mode with a scoop of So Delicious Dairy Free Vanilla Frozen Dessert!
Making Multiples? If you choose to double the recipe and make two, microwave each separately otherwise they will not fully cook.
