apple newtons


This is an adaption of siftandwhisk’s ( fantastic fig newtons. Honestly, I have not the slightest idea what the name comes from but in my world Newton was the guy sitting under an apple tree, discovering the laws of gravity. So what better modification than exchanging the figs for apples in this dizzleanddrool version of the recipe?! Since the filling is pretty juicy and the dough absorbs some of the liquid they become a bit softer than the original recipe. An alternative would be to skip the apple and just mix dates and nuts or seeds to a thicker paste, kind of like the baklava version of these newtons.



1 ½ dl almond flour

1 dl coconut flour

½ tsp baking powder

20g ( 2tblsp) coconut oil

1 egg white

2 dates



1 apple (~125g)

1.5 tblsp lemon juice (~1/2 lemon)

½ tsp cinnamon

(dates if sweeter taste desired)



Peal the apple, taste it to see how sweet it is, cut into chunks and process all ingredients for the filling until smooth.

Peal the dates for the dough and use a fork to stir them to a paste, blend with the rest of the ingredients (or use a food processor).

On a parchment paper, roll the dough with a roller to a thickness of about 3-4 mm, slice into 9 cm wide stripes. Place the filling in a string in the middle of the stripes and fold the dough over or roll.

or ( I recommend this “ravioli-way”, it’s a bit more time consuming though)

Cut into 3×3 cm squares and place the filling in the center of every other square and place the ones with out filling on top and press around the edges so that the dough keeps together.

Bake at 150C for 20-25 min. Cut to pieces about 4 cm long.

I prefer these refrigerator cool, but they are just as good room tempered.
