Pistachio Butter & Sauteed Apple Sandwich on Cinnamon Raisin Toast
Sauteed Fugi apples dusted in brown sugar sandwiched between pistachio nut butter and sweet, chewy pieces of cinnamon raisin toast.
1 cup shelled pistachios
2 tbl coconut oil
1 tbl maple syrup
Blend the pistachios in a food processor for 3-4 minutes until they have started to become a paste. Add the oil and syrup and process 4-5 minutes more into a creamy butter.
Pistachio & Apple Sandwich
1 tbl coconut oil
1 fuji apple, skin on, thinly sliced
1 tbl organic light brown sugar
1 batch pistachio butter
6 slices cinnamon raisin bread
(I used a cast iron grill pan to cook both the apples in and then press and toast the bread.)
Melt the coconut oil and saute the apple slices with brown sugar for 4-5 minutes until caramelized and slightly soft. Make sure to keep a slight crunch still on the apples.
Assemble 3 sandwiches with pistachio butter and apples then press in a panini press to toast or place back in the saute pan and press down with a spatula to toast and slightly flatten.
