5. Stuffed Apple
Each slice of apple comes with a pleasant and sweet surprise. One thing for sure is that you need to eat them as soon as you slice and make them or shortly after. You do not want the apples to turn brown and get bad if they are sitting out for too long, because that is no fun! Apples are at their best when their fresh, as is anything!
Looks amazing, doesn’t it? I bet you can’t wait to try this one out! It is fairly simple, its just 2 major steps! One would be cutting the apple and the other step is
Ingredients: (Makes 6 apples) – 6 servings
- 6 Apples
- Nut butter (to your liking)
- A knife (to cut the apples)
Directions: This will literally take under 10 minutes to make and serve all together. All you need to do is cut the apple into however many slices you would like. A popular way of doing this is finding mini apples and cutting them in half and taking out the seeds for a place to put the nut butter and granola filling. Once you have cut it, then add however much nut butter you wish to the apple. From here, you can sprinkle the granola on top of the nut butter because it will stick to the nut butter on the apple.
As an alternative, you can mix together the nut butter and the granola prior to putting it on the apple. This is a great recipe idea for a quick healthy breakfast.
