Appple Sandwich Snack

Can you believe it is already September?  This summer really flew by and now fall is right around the corner.  Two big events that we always associate with September are being back in school and apple season!  The fall is such a magical time of year, and if you are lucky enough to live in a place that has apple orchards, then you know how wonderful it is to have all those delicious apples in season.  Apple picking is a great family activity, and there are so many ways to use apples.  Apple crisp, apple sauce, apple cake, and the list goes on and on.  But when the kids get home from school and are super hungry, we love whipping up these yummy apple sandwiches.  They are great because they are a serving of fruit, have protein, and are fun to make with the kiddos.

  • 2 Apples
  • 2-3 tbsp Peanut Butter (or any type of nut butter)
  • 3 tbsp Granola
  • Raisins

  • Remove cores from apples and cut into 1/4-1/2″ thick slices
  • Spread two apple slices with nut butter
  • Top one slice with granola and raisins.  You can use any type of toppings here (for a dessert apple you can use marshmallows, mini chocolate ships, crushed graham crackers, etc).
  • Place second slice on the one with toppings so they stick together.
  • ENJOY!
