Healthy Snacks In a Snap

jumper1

I love this simple and fun recipe from Whole Foods Market! A great recipe to do with the children and the sandwiches turn out looking great!

Always get children involved in their meals. By doing this children will enjoy their food more and feel as though they are a valuable part of the meal or snack making process. Involving children in the kitchen also provides a great educational opportunity for explanations on where their food comes from and where they are grown.

Ingredients:
2 small organic apples, cored and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick rounds
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
3 tablespoons all natural/ organic peanut or almond butter
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons all natural granola

Method:
If you won’t be eating these tasty treats right away, start by brushing the apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

Spread one side of half of the apple slices with peanut or almond butter then sprinkle with chocolate chips and granola. Top with remaining apple slices, pressing down gently to make the sandwiches. Transfer to napkins or plates and serve.
