Ingredients

1 medium apple
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1 Tablespoon raisins

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Rinse or scrub fresh fruit under running water before preparing.
  3. Cut apple in half from the stem down and lay each half cut-side down on a cutting board. Slice each half into 6 half-round slices and cut out the core.
  4. Spread ½ teaspoon peanut butter on one side of each apple slice.
  5. Put 4 to 6 raisins on top of the peanut butter on one apple slice. Top with another apple slice, peanut-butter side down. Squeeze gently.
  6. Continue with remaining apple slices.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Sprinkle the peanut butter with grated carrot, chopped nuts, seeds or granola instead of, or along with, the raisins.
  • Try other nut or seed butters, such as almond, hazelnut or sunflower seed.
  • Use other dried fruit pieces, such as cherries or cranberries.
