apples and peanut butter is a classic combo. I’ve been eating it as long as I can remember. that’s why when I saw these apple ‘cookies’ on pinterest the other day I knew we had to make them. I tweaked them a bit because I’m not a fan of coconut so we skipped that and added raisins instead. lately both my kids are raisin obsessed - like they ask for multiple bowls at a time so i bought raisins in bulk. and we used mini chocolate chips instead of regular sized really for no reason other than I thought they’d be cuter. I thought about adding some old fashioned oats – maybe next time!
- apple sliced into circles + core cut out.
- peanut butter
- chocolate chips.
- spread the peanut butter evenly on each slice of apple. top each cookie evenly with raisins + chocolate chips.
I mean – does it get any easier?! I made 6 ‘cookies’ and they were gobbled up within seconds. we will absolutely be making these again + again! I was thinking that they would also be awesome as a sandwich by putting an apple slice on top and not having it open faced. that way I could easily pack them for school lunches too!
have you tried apple ‘cookies’?
