Apple Cookies

Food for Thought: Apple Cookies

Food for thought…

If your kids are anything like mine, they are starving when they get home from school. Lunch has burned off and the afternoon crash is about to strike. Avoid it with this energy and brain boosting after school snack! Apples contain antioxidants and fiber, peanut butter (or nut butter) is packed with protein, and walnuts deliver healthy omega 3 fatty acids. You’ll love that these are such a healthy, delicious and easy combo to throw together for the kids after school. Serving it up in rings, or “cookies” and varying the toppings makes this a super fun snack the kids will love too.

  1. Using a sharp knife, cut apple all the way through into 1/4" slices, or rings.
  2. With an apple corer, press in the center of the rings to remove the core and seeds.
  3. Pat apple rings dry with a paper towel, this will help the peanut butter stick better. Spread the peanut butter evenly over the rings and add desired toppings.
  4. Enjoy!
