Closing Comraderies: September {The Athletic Avocado}

close

I love reading other blogs and getting to know bloggers through their sites.  Even though I have never met any of these bloggers in person, I feel a special connection to them because I regularly read their posts.  In order to introduce you to some of my favorite  bloggers, I am starting a new series, Closing Comraderies.  The last day of every month, I will be featuring a guest post from one of my favorite blogs.

For the month of September, I invited The Athletic Avocado to share a favorite fall recipe.  The bloggers behind this site are fellow east-coast college athletes.  On their site, they regularly post, “healthified recipes intended to efficiently fuel one’s body and taste buds.”   Be sure to check out their all of their wonderful recipes and follow their blog here.

I hope you enjoy their post!

Inside Out Caramel Apples 

From The Athletic Avocado

With autumn here, I can’t help dream about my favorite seasonal treat, the scrumptious caramel apple! Caramel and apple are a match made in heaven, but with all the butter and sugar, they are way too heavy and unhealthy for me to stomach. So instead of giving up my favorite treat, I recreated it, this time with the caramel in the inside, a fun, healthy and innovative way to enjoy that same great taste as an original caramel apple, but with no sugar or unhealthy ingredients! Make this and you will be hooked, just like I am!
