Makes: 4 dumplings
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 8 mins



  • 1 large apple (we used a honeycrisp)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch
  • ½ tsp lemon juice (optional)
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 4 rice paper sheets
  • avocado oil or ghee for frying

Vanilla Dip:

  • 4 Tbsp Greek yogurt (or thick plant-based)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla bean paste or extract


  1. Finely dice the apple (very fine). Then combine the apple in a bowl together with the coconut sugar, arrowroot powder, lemon juice (if using), cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt.
  2. Submerge a rice paper sheet in warm water for a few seconds until pliable. Place a portion of the apple mixture in the center and fold the edges to seal, creating a dumpling. Repeat for the remaining dumplings.
  3. Heat a pan with a drizzle of avocado oil or ghee. Gently fry the dumplings until golden and crispy, around 4 minutes per side, flipping back and forth as needed.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla bean paste to make the vanilla dip.
  5. Serve the warm dumplings with the vanilla dip for a delectable treat!


You can customize your dumplings by adding any chopped nuts of your choice or sprinkle beeya in the vanilla bean dip for a hormone healthy treat.
