Fun Snack: Apple Peanut Butter “Sandwiches”

Apple Peanut Butter Raisin Sandwiches

I really enjoyed my little “apple sandwich” I made for a snack today, and thought you might like it, too. Fun, yummy, and healthful for both kids and adults!

Apple Peanut Butter “Sandwiches”

Apples, one or more of your favorite variety

Peanut butter (or use almond butter, tahini, etc.)



Slice the apples thinly. I sliced through the apple horizontally (through the “equator”) and then cut the core out of each slice, but you could also slice vertically. Spread some peanut butter on one slice, top with raisins, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Place another apple slice on top. Now you have an apple sandwich!

    Lindsey, that looks yummy, delicious, and healthful. Another fun idea for a peanut butter sandwich on bread is with fruit instead of jelly. Add slices of apple or strawberries or blueberries or any other fruit on top of the peanut butter for a variation on PB&J. Kate

    Kate — Now that’s a great idea to use fruit instead of jelly! Cuts out some sugar, for sure. Thanks for the idea!

    Those are so cute! In response to Kate’s comment, lately I’ve been enjoying peanut butter and sliced bananas on a piece of toast. That way you avoid the sugar in jelly and really only need one slice of bread. It’s also delicious with honey drizzled on top!

    Now why have I not thought of that?! I love (and prefer) open-faced sandwiches…and peanut butter, bananas & a drizzle of honey sounds like the perfect combo! What a swell idea. Thanks for that!!
