Kids love it when you get creative with lunch! My kids tend to ask for apples with their lunch most days anyway, so I incorporate their apple slices as a main part of their meal when I make these sandwiches for them. Adding in this granola includes a great source of complete proteins and healthy fats. Sprinkle some raisins on and you include a good amount of iron, B vitamins, and potassium. The nut butter holds it all together. You could use peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower seed butter. It’s your choice!
- Slice the apples in thin slices. I used a mandolin slicer, but if you have a steady hand you can use a sharp knife.
- Cut the seeds/core out of the middle of the apple slices. I used a small cookie cutter, but again, you could use a knife to cut that part out.
- Spread peanut butter on one slice. Sprinkle on some raisins, then the granola. Put another apple slice on top to make it a sandwich.
