caramel apple dates

Vegan Caramel Apple Bites

If you use a good quality Medjool date these taste surprisingly just like little bites of caramel apple. They use 2 ingredients and take only minutes to make. This is a lunch box staple in our family!

  • 1 package Medjool Dates Good quality & make sure they're fresh, not broken or smooshed.
  • 1-2 whole apple(s) Pink Lady apples are my favorite with Medjool dates. I love the contrast of how tart the pink lady is with the sweet date. They will taste great with any apple though.


  • Slice open the dates lengthwise on one half of the date to pit the date and provide a space for the apple to go.
  • Slice the apples 1 inch wide, 2-3 inch long slices and insert into the middle of the date.
  • I serve two of these per person but one could easily want to eat more!
