When my boys were little we used to love to eat apple flautas with ice cream. Of course back then I was buying a store bought frozen variety. My schedule was amazingly hectic, with home schooling, gardening, housework and all of the things that go along with raising a family, so I occasionally indulged in pre-made flautas. The truth is that they are amazingly quick and easy to make. With my children grown and on their own I have more time to indulge in making more of the foods I love from scratch.
Since I eat gluten free I was thrilled to find organic, grain free, gluten free coconut wraps at the grocery store. So began the simple quest of apple flautas for dessert…..
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, chopped (about 2-1/2 cups)
1-1/2 T. Coconut Sugar
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
2 T. Goat Butter
1-1/2 tsp. Arrowroot Flour
Preheat oven to 350.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Peel, core and chop apples. Add to a saucepan with sugar, cinnamon, tapioca flour and butter. Stir till well coated.
Cook till apples are tender.
Place seven 6 inch tortillas on counter and divide filling between tortillas. (Approximately one heaping tablespoon of apple filling).
Roll tightly and place seam side down on the parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or till tortillas are a light golden color.
Remove from pan and allow to cool on cookie rack-the filling will be HOT.
You can brush the tops with coconut oil and sprinkle sugar on top if desired….I found these sweet enough with out the additional sugar. I plan on making these again with a variety of different fillings such as apple and raisin, apple and cranberry, apple, walnut, raisin and coconut, sweet potatoes with walnuts…….. Perhaps I need to hide the bathroom scale!
These are delicious on their own or with a bowl of your favorite ice cream.
Who’s ready for dessert!
