Lately it feels like all my boys want to do is snack! They are constantly coming into the kitchen saying that they're hungry. I have been getting bored with giving them the same few things to snack on, so I thought I would turn to Pinterest. I found a recipe like this by Kids Kubby. I slightly modified it based on what I had on hand. It's a quick, easy, healthy, and fun snack that the kids will love!
-Unsweetened coconut flakes
-Dark chocolate chips
Slice the apple in thin slices as shown above. Then using a small heart shaped cookie cutter, or a pairing knife cut the core of the apple out in a heart shape on half of the slices. On the other halves I removed the core by cutting a smaller hole. Then spread the peanut butter on these halves. Top with coconut flakes and chocolate chips. Then cover each with the slices that have the heart shapes in the center. Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
This is an easy snack to mix up with your favorite ingredients. Here are some other ideas:
I have always loved the combination of apples and peanut butter!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the idea Katelyn! I feel the same thing about my boys... they try sneaking into the pantry for snacks all of the time and I have been trying to keep healthy options for them.ReplyDelete
