Apple Butter Sandwich

Apple Butter Sandwich

Easy Healthy Snacking
–By Kirsten Singler– This recipe makes healthy snacking easy.  Make several of these and take to work or pack in lunches!  Kids can get involved with making these apple butter sandwiches as well.

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples
  • ½ cup organic almond butter
  • ½ cup mix of raw oats or granola, pumpkin seeds and raisins
  • 2 teaspoons of honey

 

Directions:

Start with 2 large, clean apples and pre-mixed granola with seeds and raisins. Slice out the central core with a knife by driving the knife along the outer walls of the core. The easiest way to do this is to create a cube in the center of the apple. Next, cut the apple horizontally to create thick slices as in the picture above. Ideally, you will have 8 slices that will make 4 sandwiches.

Then, smear ¼ teaspoon of almond butter on top of the apple slice. Add 1 tablespoon of the seeds, oats and fruit. Drizzle ¼- ½ teaspoon of honey over the top and cover with another apple slice.

You can make several of these for snacks through the day, or for family members.

If you want to keep the apple from turning brown, then rub lemon juice over the exposed surface.

Pack in baggies or to-go containers.

 

Makes 2 servings.
