These baked prosciutto wrapped apples are a winner! When I made these appetizers, I brought all of the extras to Cole’s work and apparently they all DIED OVER THEM and I got many requests to make them again. I’ve also heard so much great feedback about these from those of you that made them!

Minimal ingredients and dairy-free/gluten-free, these are so yummy you must try!

Ingredients for Baked Prosciutto Wrapped Apples:

  • Apples – I used Honeycrisp, but you can use whatever kind you prefer
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Lemon
  • Sea salt
  • Water
  • Prosciutto
  • Honey

How to Make Baked Prosciutto Wrapped Apples:

These aren’t hard to make but does take a little bit of time to assemble each bite. Start by preheating the oven and then washing and chopping the apples into 1/2 inch slices or so.

Then make the macadamia nut “cheese:” add raw macadamia nuts, lemon juice, sea salt, and water into a food processor and blend until it turns into a creamy, cheese-like texture.

Now it’s time to put everything together! Take an individual apple slice, add a dollop of the macadamia nut “cheese” spread, wrap in prosciutto, and stick a toothpick in it. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Before you wrap the prosciutto, I recommend ripping each prosciutto slice in half vertically, so it’s about 2 inches wide or so and only covers the center of each apple slice. Repeat this until all of the ingredients are used up.

Drizzle honey on top of all of the apple slices and bake in the oven. Let cool and then serve!

If you’d like, you could try and use real cheese instead of the macadamia nut “cheese.” I haven’t tried this, but it’s possible that the time in the oven may vary so just keep an eye on it so the cheese doesn’t burn.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Wash and chop apples into about 1/2” inch slices or so.
  3. Make the macadamia nut “cheese:” add raw macadamia nuts, lemon juice, sea salt and water into a food processor and blend until a creamy, cheese-like texture.
  4. Take an individual apple slice, add a dollop of the macadamia nut spread, wrap in prosciutto, and stick a toothpick in it. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. *Before you wrap the prosciutto, I recommend ripping each prosciutto slice in half vertically, so it’s about 2 inches wide or so and only covers the center of each apple slice.

Notes

You can use real cheese if you’d like! It’s possible that the time in the oven may vary so just keep an eye on it so the cheese doesn’t burn.

If you want to keep this recipe super simple and easy, you can omit the macadamia nut spread from the recipe. It’s still tasty but just different, and there’s no creamy texture.
