Easy After School Snack: PB Apple Sandwiches

By bellalimento |

Earlier we shared some Lunch Box Ideas like: “APPLE” POCKET PIES & NUTELLA “SUSHI”. Now we’re sharing a quick and easy snack that’s perfect for after school noshing. Peanut Butter with Chocolate Chips Apple Sandwiches or PBCC Apple Sandwiches as we call them in our house. My kids always coming home “starving” from school. The minute they rush in the door, drop their backpacks, shoes on the floor it’s into the kitchen for a snack. I try to have something quick and easy that will satisfy them until dinner is ready. These definitely fit the bill. TIP: If you don’t have an apple corer you can use my shortcut. I simply slice the apple into the desired thickness {I make them thinner for the smaller children and thicker for the older ones} and then I use a large metal decorating tip to cut out the core.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Apple Sandwiches
What you’ll need: {1 apple makes 2-3 sandwiches depending on how thick you slice your apples}
apple – sliced & cores removed
approximately 1 tablespoon per sandwich peanut butter
approximately 1 teaspoon per sandwich chocolate chips – optional

What to do:
1. Spread peanut butter onto apple circle. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Place another apple circle on top. Press gently to seal.

2. Continue until you have desired amount of sandwiches.

    Peanut butter and apple are like my most favorite snack combination EVER. Love that you’ve turned them into sandwiches.

    SO cute!
    My favorite version of a PB&J is a slice of whole wheat bread, topped with apple slices, cinnamon and a drizzle of tahini and honey. It’s open-faced, so a bit messy, but I survived on it in college.

    Great simple and fun idea! My daughters have gluten allergies, so this is a great substitute.
