Just plain healthy recipe...

An easy-to-prepare, nutritious Afternoon Apple Snacks made with fresh apples, peanut butter, and honey sandwiched between graham crackers. Leave the apple skin on for even more nutrients! Just be sure to wash the apple well before slicing.

Recipe Ingredients

2 Red Delicious apples
Lemon juice
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tablespoons organic raw honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6 whole graham crackers

Afternoon Apple Snacks

Recipe Directions

Fresh apples with sliced apple wedge

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.
