Apple “Sandwiches”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Kids will love to help you make this healthy snack since it’s fun to spread the nut butter and sprinkle the chips or raisins. No corer in the kitchen drawer? Slice the apples into rounds first then use a small paring knife to remove the core from the center of each slice before spreading ingredients!


  • 2 small apples, cored and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick rounds
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, optional
  • 3 Tablespoons peanut or other nut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips or raisins
  • 3 Tablespoons granola


  1. If not eating immediately, brush the apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
  2. Spread one side of half of the apple slices with nut butter, then sprinkle with raisins or chocolate chips and granola.
  3. Top with remaining apple slices, pressing down gently to make the sandwiches.
