  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼cup peeled, grated apples (choose your favorite—I love Empire or Pink Lady apples)
  • ¼ teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut crystals (such as Coconut Secret)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pectin (such as Pomona’s)
  • 2 packets stevia extract (such as Stevia in the Raw)
  • 2 pieces unsalted brown rice thin cakes (such as Suzie’s)


  1. Place the water, apples, lemon juice, coconut, and cinnamon in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a microwave-safe plate or waxed paper and microwave on high until the mixture has come to a boil, about 3 minutes. Remove the bowl from the microwave.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the pectin and stevia and then add it to the hot apple mixture slowly while whisking, until dissolved. Scrape the sides of the bowl, cover, and microwave on high until boiling and thickened, about 30 seconds. Transfer the apple mixture to a stainless-steel bowl and set it over another bowl of ice to chill the mixture completely. It will get much tighter as it cools.
  3. Lay a rice thin down on a clean surface, dollop the apple mixture on top, top with a plain rice thin, and serve.


I like to keep the mixture right in the bowl and use the crackers as a dip when I need a soul-satisfying sweet snack.
