Apple Snacks

Apple wedges with peanut butter, honey, flatbread, strawberry and raisins turned into a silly fruit head snack for kids.

Ingredients

  • 1 FlatOut® Fold-it® or sandwich round
  • 4 raisins, blueberries or grapes
  • 2 apple wedges
  • 1 strawberry, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter or WOWButter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Stir the peanut butter, honey & cinnamon together to use as a spread.

Cut the FlatOut® Fold-it® in half to create two separate rounds.  Or, separate the sandwich round into two separate circles. 

Spread the peanut butter mixture on to each round.

Lay a piece of strawberry towards the edge of one side of each round to create a tongue.

Add an apple wedge to each round with the skin facing outwards to create a smile.

Fold the round in half and crease so that it stays closed.

Add a dot of the peanut butter spread to the top of each round in two places to create a ‘food glue’ for edible eyes. Add the raisins, blueberries or grapes to the spread and serve.
