This apple sandwiches recipe is not only pretty, it’s lots of fun to make (and eat)! It’s perfect for an after school snack or in a school lunchbox. You can even let the kids get involved to help make them. You can just prepare the apples and then let the kids take over for the fun part of the sandwich building!
If you’re going to pack these in a lunchbox, you’ll want to do something to keep the apple slices from browning. You can use a product like Fruit Fresh or else just dip the slices in a citrus juice – lemon works well, or you can use pineapple juice for a sweeter taste. The most simple option is to prepare a bowl with four cups of cold water with 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice. Let the apple slices soak for 5-10 minutes, then proceed with the rest of the recipe.
These snacks are packed with good-for-you things like apples, raisins and peanut butter. If peanuts are off the list at your house or school, just substitute almond butter, sunbutter or another spread of your choice.
