One of the best part about the changing of seasons is the new foods that we begin to introduce back into our lives. For fall and winter, we’re always looking for comforting vegan foods like apples and cinnamon. This vegan recipe combines both those fall favourites in a tasty and versatile dessert dish.

A Look at the Fall Superstars
Why are apples so great? Apples are not only incredibly seasonal, but they are loaded with health benefits. They help with weight loss, digestion, helps fight diseases and control blood sugar levels, plus they’re a natural energy producer. On top of that, mixed with the health benefits of pears, which in my opinion is a very underrated fruit, this dish is totally delicious and not as bad for you as the typical vegan dessert.
Did you know there are over 8,000 varieties of apples making it the largest variety of fruit to exist?
What’s the benefits of coconut wraps? The coconut wraps by Sunfoods have their own set of health benefits adding to this vegan dessert recipe. They have potassium which helps maintain healthy blood pressure, they have calcium which helps build strong bones, low in calories (70 calories per wrap), and low carb (4g net carbs).
