Stuffed Apple Slices

Today I am going to share a really fun recipe you can make with your kids! It’s always great getting the kids involved in the prepping and even cooking of a meal. This recipe is a great healthy snack and an easy one for kids preschool age and up to make. Check out these Stuffed Apple Slices… it’s one of the many awesome recipes in the Children’s Culinary Institute curriculum.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large apples
  • 1 cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, etc)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey (local is the best)
  • 2 tbsp mini carob chips

cci7

Using an apple coring tool, core the apples and dry out the centers with a paper towel. If you don’t feel comfortable with the little ones using the coring tool, you can take over that step and have the kids dry out the centers when you’re done.

Next mix all ingredients (except the apples) in a mixing bowl.

cci2

 

Using a spoon or a butter knife, fill the center of the apples with the nut butter mixture. Stuff them good!! Wrap them with plastic wrap and stick them in the fridge for an hour (I set the timer so I don’t forget). After an hour, remove the pastic wrap and slice apples in thin slices. Serve!

Look at that proud, satisfied smile! Having kids involved in the cooking process often encourages them to try new things and make healthier choices. And this snack is a great no-cook, no-bake recipe which is perfect for summer time when you don’t want to heat up the house and you want to give the kids something fun to do. 
 
As mentioned before, this recipe (and lots of others) can be found in the Children’s Culinary Institute curriculum. I have been a CCI instructor for 4 years now and I will be the first to tell you that I LOVE it. I am able to use the CCI curriculum and be apart of an exclusive team of instructors (nation wide!) who continue to support and help you grow. I can make my own hours and work right from home doing something I love- teaching kids of all ages how to make healthy choices and how to cook and bake. This is an important life skill that so many kids miss out on since it’s often not something offered in schools anymore. Cooking and baking incorporate math, reading comprehension, and science all while learning how to prepare healthy meals and snacks. We have themed months, cooking competitions, field trips, and the kids can even progress through the courses and move up in apron colors. They absolutely LOVE it. Their sense of accomplishment after starting with raw materials and then creating something that they can eat and enjoy… that’s priceless. If you follow me on social media, you have had an inside peek to lots of my kids cooking classes and how fun they really are!

Travel: Lakeside, Arizona

Stand up if you think Arizona is ugly.   Now sit back down, son.   Even for those who have something against the desert landscape and find it “barren” or “boring” ( I’ve heard of these people and we will address this issue at a later date), there is some serious variety in this lovely state. […]

Many many moons ago I was an elementary school teacher, and loved it! I actually never imagined myself NOT being a teacher. But my husband’s job transferred us to Arizona from California during the height of the recession, and trying to get a teaching job was nearly impossible. It seems it was all Gods plan, […]
