Apple and Peanut Butter Sandwiches
Sweet crunchy apples with creamy peanut butter, these Apple and Peanut Butter Sandwiches are an easy, delicious and healthy snack.
- 1 Apple
- 3 tbsp Peanut Butter
- Optional Toppings (oats, rasins, crushed nuts, coconut, choc chips etc)
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.
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.
