These vegan Apple Spring Rolls with Maple Almond Butter Sauce may become your new favorite dessert! If you like spring rolls, apples, and nut butter, these are for you!
I will admit, I am not an apple pie fan. No, I do not like the all-American classic dessert. I gravitate more towards chocolate myself, and not even as a cake or pie – just give me a really good dark chocolate bar, and I am a happy camper. I do however, love the combination of apple and nut butter. I also love spring rolls. So I thought I would combine those loves. These Apple Spring Rolls with Maple Almond Butter Sauce are the result.
I always have rice paper wrappers in my pantry because they last forever (I am actually not sure of their shelf life, but it seems like forever). Vegetable Spring Rolls are one of my go-to meals because they are so easy to make.
By baking these spring rolls, they become slightly crispy. The pecans also add a nice crunch. The apple tastes like it belongs in apple pie, with brown sugar and cinnamon sprinkled over them. So if you like apple pie, I think you will enjoy these Apple Spring Rolls. For me, the Maple Almond Sauce saved the dessert from tasting too much like apple pie!
