Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 Apple
  • 3 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • Optional Toppings (oats, rasins, crushed nuts, coconut, choc chips etc)

Instructions

  • Place the apple horizontally (so you are cutting through the core) on a chopping board and cut into slices approx 0.5 cm / 1/4" thick. Each apple will yield 6 slices. 
  • Match the apple slices into pairs that are most similar in size. 
  • Remove the core from the centre of the apple by using small cookie cutters. Make sure to use the same shape on the matching apple pair. 
  • Spread 1tbsp of peanut butter on one slice of each matching pain
  • Sprinkle with toppings (optional)
  • Top with matching apple slice to form a sandwich.

Notes

If you don't have small cookie cutters then either use an apple corer or a sharp knife to remove the core.  
If not eating straight away, brush a little lemon juice on the cut apple flesh to prevent browning.
If there is a nut allergy then you can replace the nut butter with sunflower seed butter/tahini.
