Autumn Spiced Apple Sundaes #Choctoberfest

I was provided with Barlean's Butter Flavored Coconut Oil for this sponsored post as a part of #Choctoberfest.  
All opinions, photos and recipe are unsolicited and are my own.

Whew!  We have arrived at the last day of #Choctoberfest for this year, and it's been so much fun!

I have one last recipe to share - this time using Barlean's Butter Flavored  Coconut Oil.  Now, I use coconut oil a lot, but some recipes just need a good buttery taste to be just right.  Butter is great! But coconut oil has a higher smoke point (meaning you can cook with it at a higher temperature without it burning), so a jar of Barlean's in the cupboard is a great way to balance flavor, health, and ease of use.

Barlean's offers a full range of healthy supplements including probiotics and healthy greens (chocolate flavored!), and is a healthy source for superfood nutrition.  After trying the Butter Flavored Coconut Oil, I'll be looking into their other products.

Right now, we have a houseful of guests while my daughter, husband and two children are visiting, and it can be a challenge to come up with meals and desserts that everyone will enjoy and that won't take a lot of time to prepare.

This one met every one of those challenges!  Sauteed honeyed cinnamon apples, walnuts, mini chocolate chips, all over a scoop of salted caramel ice cream? Yes, please! If you like apple pie a la mode, you're going to love this.

Autumn Spiced Apple Sundaes
Serves 6
Sauteed Apples:
4 apples, washed, cored and cut into 1/2" cubes
4 Tblsp. Barlean's Butter Flavored Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp. Chinese 5 Spice Blend
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tblsp. honey

For each Sundae:
1 scoop salted caramel ice cream
Sauteed Apples
semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
minced walnuts

Heat Barlean's coconut oil in a large skillet or wok.  Add diced apples, and cook on medium heat, stirring often, until nearly soft.  Add spices, and continue cooking until soft, then add honey and stir to combine.  

Remove from heat and let the apples cool slightly.

Scoop ice cream into bowls.  Top with apples, then chocolate chips (they will soften nicely from the heat of the apples), and walnuts.

That's it!  The leftover sauteed apples can be stored in the refrigerated and enjoyed hot or cold.  

Try it as a topping for oatmeal or stirred into plain yogurt.  

They come together so quickly, you're going to want to keep it on hand throughout the Autumn months.
