Ingredients

1 medium apple
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1 Tablespoon raisins

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread ½ teaspoon peanut butter on one side of each apple slice.
  4. 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.
  5. Continue with remaining apple slices.
  6. 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.
