Apple Peanut Butter and Jelly

Looking for a quick and easy after school snack? THIS is the recipe for you!

The classic flavors of peanut butter and jelly combine to give you a fun treat approved by even the pickiest eater! 

I really love the addition of protein added by peanut butter. My kid always comes home from school begging for food. Giving him something that is going to satisfy his craving, and keep him happy until dinner, is high on my priority list. The combination of the tart apple, salty peanut butter, and sweet jelly gives him a little bit of everything!

Health benefits of apples as a snack:

Apples are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. That makes them the perfect snack for growing kids and is why I am more likely to reach for them when planning treats or weekday snack ideas. They are convenient to pack in lunches or backpacks and high on the list of kid favorites. 

Ingredients for apple peanut butter and jelly:

  • Apples- We like tart varieties like Granny Smith
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly- Grape is our favorite! 

The fun thing about this recipe is that it is completely customizable! You can easily leave the jelly out OR substitute with another option.  We really love grape jelly but have been known to use honey, Nutella, even sliced strawberries or marshmallows!
