Delicious and Easy Apple Snacks


Who doesn’t love apples?  They are sweet, juicy, easy to eat on the go…the reasons go on and on.  One of the main reasons that I love them is that they are so easy to manipulate.  You can slap virtually any topping on them and have a delicious, healthy snack.

Apples are also the perfect snack for kids, because they are finger foods!  Also, children love getting to put all the different toppings and making their own, unique snack (I know I loved doing this as a kid!).

For this apple, I put peanut butter on 4 of the slices.  I topped one of the peanut butter covered ones with cocoa powder, one with butterscotch chips, one was plain peanut butter, and one had cocoa crispies.  I topped another with honey.  The last one was covered with a smear of Nutella.

These are a fun way to experiment with different flavors and stay relatively healthy at the same time.

It’s apple season so get out there and pick some apples and make some apple snacks!

  1. This is a nice way to enhance kids’ creativity while having fun at the same time. When they decide which topping to use for their apple treat, they are learning to make choices, be confident and responsible with the choices and learning more about themselves. Nothing to lose…just make sure to remind the kiddos to brush their teeth…Apples stain teeth and the sweet treats need not stay too long on their milk teeth. Thanks for the post!
