Apple Enchiladas (AIP/Paleo) are a fun and satisfying dessert option. They are gluten free, dairy free, and contain surprisingly little added sugar!Jump to Recipe
Hi, friend! I have something so delish for you, which will be absolutely perfect for your Cinco de Mayo dessert! 😀
I have no idea why the idea popped into my head when it did. Many years ago, my sister-in-law served apple enchiladas for dessert at their house, and it made an impression on me. I think that particular version involved a can of apple pie filling, flour tortillas and butter. Drool-worthy.
Of course, that won’t fly on a diet that avoids gluten, dairy, and processed sugar. But I tell you, this version will definitely fly. It’s one of those recipes that you could serve without telling anyone it’s AIP/Paleo, and they wouldn’t know. They would be too busy stuffing their faces.
The thing that makes these possible…
… is coconut wraps! These coconut wraps are perfectly suited for desserts! (I like them better for desserts than savory dishes.) The brand I use has also just come out with a cinnamon kind. I’ve tried both with this recipe, and honestly, I feel like the plain one works better. I will find a use for the cinnamon ones.
Need more ideas for Cinco de Mayo?
In my years living in Arizona, Cinco de Mayo was a reason to celebrate for many. How lucky I was to have authentic Mexican food available! Here are some other AIP/Paleo recipes you can use, if you are celebrating:
If you are not feeling celebratory right now, I understand. Honor whatever you are feeling. But how about having an apple enchilada with that?
As always, I am wishing you so much love and healing.
