I love finding new snack recipes for my kids. But the thing is – they have to be easy and I have to be 98% sure my kids are going to eat them. Because if I invest my time into making banana tortilla ‘sushi’ rolls, they sure as heck better eat them.
When I came across this idea from Tasty Junior I was pretty sure it would go over well. My kids love apples. They would live on peanut butter if I let them. And they really love my home made granola. However – put them all together and you never know if they’re going to suddenly have some weird aversion to the mixing of tastes.
Turns out? They LOVED them! We went through 4 apples before I told them they would have to snack on something else if they were still hungry.
Here’s how you do it.
1-2 apples (depending on how many people you’re making snacks for)
Peanut butter (I use the 100% peanuts kind with no sugar added)
Granola (you can make this recipe quickly and easily)
Chocolate chips (these are optional – but in my house, they’re rarely optional)
Cut the apples up in round slices
To get the centre core part out, I used the top of a cake-decorating/icing/piping nozzle thing
Spread the apples with peanut butter
Sprinkle granola on top and add chocolate chips
Voila! Easy, delicious and the kids are getting fruit, protein, some good stuff like hemp and oatmeal from the granola – and it’s definitely kid-approved!
