Apple Peanut Butter Rounds

My kids are peanut butter and jelly kids. They would eat it for lunch everyday if I made it for them but I get bored making them the same thing. My 6 year old daughter saw a photo of apple slices with peanut butter and lots of goodies on top so I decided to surprise her and make my own version.  Apple, Kids Healthy Snack, Peanut Butter

  1. 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
  2. 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds (unsalted)
  3. 1 tablespoon chocolate chips
  4. 1 tablespoon flaked coconut
  5. 1 tablespoon raisins
  6. 1 large apple, cored and sliced
  7. Peanut butter
  1. After the apple is cored and sliced spread peanut butter over the tops of the slices. Make the topping mixture by placing the chia seeds, coconut, raisins, sunflower seeds and chocolate chips in a bowl and mix with your hands. Then with a spoon sprinkle over the tops of the apples, the peanut butter will be like a "glue" and hold the toppings on so it's not so messy.

Apple, Kids Healthy Snack, Peanut Butter Allergic to peanuts? You can use almond butter or Nutella as a substitute. The great thing about this recipe is that is can be modified to suit kids likes and dislikes! Add another apple slice on top and turn it into an sandwich!

  1. I love peanut butter anything! These look like a perfect after school or weekend snack.

  2. Oh wow these sound delicious, I’m not a fan of just peanut better but it can be delicious when added to something. x

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    What a great snack these are. My kids would LOVE these – and I would, too!

  4. Oh wow, that looks absolutely delicious. The twins will love this.

  5. These look pretty tasty. They are certainly a healthy and easy snack for after school or for any time.

  6. My daughter is a PB&J gal too. I’ll have to give these a try. They look a lot healthier.

  7. Looks a fun, but also very healthy snack! Apples and peanut butter are such a winning combination for me!

  8. Okay. Now you have me wanting to stop and go make these! LOVE apple everything!

  9. This would make for a perfect after school snack! I love that you added chocolate chips and coconut! We might try it with carob chips too!

  10. My kiddos love peanut butter but not jelly. This would be perfect for them they love PB and Apples so why not. Looks like a nice yummy snack!

  11. Those look delicious! I love that they’re a healthy snack option.

  12. I used to make something similar with Nutella. I love your idea of adding sunflower seeds and coconut!

  13. What a great snack. This looks great. I’d eat you.

  14. Awesome after school snack idea! I like to keep healthy and simple snacks like this on hand so the kids have something nutritious to fuel up on after a long day at school!

  15. Wow! Apples! Apples! I really love apple. This looks yummy. I’m going to try this at home.

  16. I have three kids who are peanut butter kids. And I have one who is sort of a peanut butter guy, every now and again, lol. Mama? Oh yeah, I like peanut butter (and sometimes jelly). lol These rounds sound great!

  17. My boys are huge peanut butter fans. As a matter of fact, sometimes that is all they want for their school lunches. This is a creative alternative to traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

  18. Yummy!! What a neat breakfast idea. Saving this idea for Monday with the dayhome kids.

  19. My youngest is a peanut butter kid. All of these ingredients are ones that she loves. This would be a perfect snack for her.

  20. This is such a great idea for a snack or even lunch item. I like that it is made with apples instead of bread. I also like that it can be made in several varieties with additions.

  21. Do your kids mind the chia seeds? I know they don’t have a taste, but mine might be nervous because they look different. Found you on the Hope Studios blog party 🙂

    • Normally I hide the chia seeds in other recipes so they do not know about them but this time they were able to see them, some of my kids minded and some didn’t. Next time I may use less of them and mix them in the peanut butter so they cannot see them.

  22. Now if I can get the children out of the leftover Halloween candy and get them to eat this! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  23. I want to make these – I have a sweet tooth and we would love to snack on these. They look pretty easy and great for a fall snack, too.

  24. These look so good and tasty! My kids would really enjoy these.

    I already eat peanut butter with slices of apples all the time but this recipe looks like it takes that snack to a whole new level of deliciousness lol. Trying this later today!
