Afternoon Apple Snacks
An easy-to-prepare, nutritious snack made with apples, peanut butter, and honey sandwiched between graham crackers.
2 Red Delicious apples Method:
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6 whole graham crackers
- Core apples and cut each in half; cut each half into 3 wedges to make a total of 12 wedges. Dip wedges in lemon juice to prevent browning and place in a single layer on microwave-safe plate or baking dish. Cover loosely with waxed paper and microwave on high (100 percent) 3 1/2 to 4 minutes or until apples are tender and hold their shape. (If microwave does not have carousel, rotate dish halfway through cooking.) Drain apples on paper towels.
- In small bowl, combine peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon. Snap graham crackers in half to make 12 square crackers. Spread a layer of peanut butter mixture on each of six square crackers; top each with 2 apple wedges. Top with remaining graham cracker squares to sandwich snacks.
