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

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.

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.
