Vary your apple “sandwich” using different nut butters and dried fruits.
- 1 medium apple
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- Wash hands with soap and water.
- Cut apple in half from the stem down and lay each half cut-side down on a cutting board. Slice each half into 6 half-round slices and cut out the core.
- Spread 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter on one side of each apple slice.
- Put 4 to 6 raisins on top of the peanut butter on one apple slice. Top with another apple slice, peanut-butter side down. Squeeze gently.
- Continue with remaining apple slices.
- Sprinkle the peanut butter with grated carrot, chopped nuts, seeds or granola instead of, or along with, the raisins.
- Try other nut or seed butters, such as almond, hazelnut or sunflower seed.
- Use other dried fruit pieces, such as cherries or cranberries.
