In a medium sized mixing bowl add coconut flakes, cacao powder, cacao nibs, cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup. Stir well, for 2-3 minutes, until the maple syrup is fully combined and the dry mixture starts to turn wet from the syrup.
Clean and dry the apple. Thinly slice the apple starting from the outside and working your way toward the center. Repeat on the other side. Then lay the apple flat on one of the cut sides and chop thin slices of the remaining sides of the apple core. (Polish off whatever’s left on the core by transferring directly to your mouth – watch for seeds.) :)
Transfer the sliced apple to a serving tray.
Pour the cocoa-nut mixture on top of each apple.
Now you can serve them right away or let them sit for an hour or longer to let the coconut flake mixture soften, totally up to you. (I couldn’t wait that long and neither could Jeff.)
