Looking to upgrade your boring snack game for your kids at home during social isolation?
Try these tummy-filling apple rings! Apples have been the ONE fruit I have been able to consistently find at the grocery stores and they pack a nutritious and delicious punch.
I recommend starting with a Granny smith apple as they are slightly lower in sugar and carbs, 22% higher in fiber, and contain 63% more protein than their red apple counterparts.
Start by rinsing the apple really well. Core the middle of the apple and slice it sideways so you have a donut shaped ring.
Choosing a base like peanut butter, almond butter, or chocolate hummus will give you a good, sticky base for other toppings to stick and provides a great source of even more protein and satiating fats to keep you and your kiddo fuller for longer.
Now the fun toppings! You can try adding:
Toasted or regular coconut flakes or shreds
Dark chocolate chips (or semi sweet chips)
Graham cracker crumbs
Crushed cocoa nibs
Any other nuts
Dried fruit or banana slices
The possibilities for creative snacking are endless! Enjoy!
