Apple Slice Doughnut Snack

Fall time brings a lot of treats, sweets and goodies! I know I'm always left looking for something nutritious and healthy - and this little "treat" was just fun and cute, so my kids thought it really was a treat - but it was more of a healthy snack. So I called it a win-win!  We call these Apple Slice Doughnuts!

No promises that they taste like an actual doughnut, but we like to call these doughnuts anyway.  The kids love being able to customize their own.  We like to switch it up and use different nut butters as well--or even nutella or cookie butter if it's for dessert.  

These work great for a mid-day pick-me-up or an after-school snack!


It's more of an idea than a recipe, but here is an actual recipe if you feel you need it ;)

Apple Slice Doughnut Snack

Ingredients:


1 apple, cored and sliced into rounds
Nut butter for spreading
Toppings: Chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, sprinkles, shredded coconut, raisins, chopped nuts, poppy seeds, or anything else you love!

Directions:


Spread apple slices with nut butter and top as desired. You can also put your nut butter in a plastic ziplock bag and snip the end to squirt it on the apple. It's sometimes tricky to spread a sticky butter on a juicy apple! :)  Serve immediately.
