Is an Apple A Good Snack?

 

Apples are a fantastic snack. They are easily accessible and affordable.

You can find them right on your kitchen counter. This recipe just offers a new, unique way to enjoy them.

They are very low in calories. The average-sized apple only has about 95 calories.

Apples are also a great source of other nutrients we need in our daily diets. They have antioxidants, fiber, and Vitamin C.

Apples, in general, help to curb cravings and keep appetites at bay. They contain a lot of water, which helps you feel full for a longer period of time.

Some of the sweeter apples will work great with this recipe. Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, and Fuji would be great choices.

Pick Granny Smith if you are looking for something more tart.

Spreading the delicious nut butter is not just beneficial but adds flavor and texture.  

The nut butter adds protein and flavor without added sugar. This is another ingredient that helps you stay full for longer.

Using unsweetened granola and dark chocolate will keep the sugar content very low as well. The sprinkle of cinnamon gives it that extra boost of flavor.

These apple snacks are the perfect mix of sweet, salty, and crunchy.

How to Make Healthy Apple Snacks

The ingredients you‘ll need:

  • apple (Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, and Fuji, etc.)
  • almond butter
  • unsweetened granola
  • cinnamon
  • dark chocolate chips

Start by cutting the apples into large wedges and removing the seeds.

You can use a small paring knife or melon baller like this to remove the core and seeds. These are the tools that work best, so you aren‘t cutting away too much of the delicious apple.

Keep the peels on! They have lots of added fiber and nutrients.

Slice the pieces into flat wedges. They should be about ¼“- ½“ inch / ½ cm thick.

Try to keep the wedges as flat as possible, so it‘s easier to spread the nut butter.

Spread the almond butter evenly across the apple wedges. Then sprinkle the granola and cinnamon on each wedge.

It‘s easier to put the almond butter on all of the apples first. Then lay them on a serving platter.

Sprinkle the granola and cinnamon over all of the apples at the same time. This is much quicker than doing one apple at a time.

Now for the best part, the dark chocolate drizzle!

Place the dark chocolate in a bowl. Melt in the microwave in 30-second increments.

Stir the chocolate every 30 seconds or so. This will help the chocolate melt and prevent it from burning.

What Goes Well With Apple Slices?

Basically, any nut butter is going to taste delicious on apples. There are so many options.

Almond butter and peanut butter are great because they are easy to find. Make sure you are buying unsweetened nut butter.

We don‘t want any of the jars that have added sugars.

You can even try walnut butter or pecan butter. They would be something different and delicious to try.

Sunflower seed butter like this is another great option for those who cannot eat nuts.

Nut butters offer a great way to add protein and fiber to apples. There are also options out there with added nutrients like MCT oil you can get here.

How Long Are Apples Good For?

Apples themselves stay good to eat for a very long time. They will stay fresh for 6-8 weeks if you keep them in a cool, dry area.

They will stay fresh longer if you keep them in the refrigerator.

Be sure to eat these apple snacks right away, though. They taste the best fresh!
