This treat is DELISH. It’s not quite “approved” by my regular meal plan, but it’s quite an improvement to a big bowl of ice cream or a sleeve of girl scout cookies…two items I can put down no problem 😉
sprouted organic pumpkin seeds
dark chocolate chips
NOTE: you can get creative here… raisins, coconut shavings, sunflower seeds, craisins, etc. Portions are up to you – use in moderation for healthier snack.
1 apple (I like honeycrisp or granny smith)
DIRECTIONS: -Bring water to boil.
-While water is boiling, slice apple into desired slivers; I prefer bit sized.
-Combine water, nut butter, and honey in a small bowl. Whip to creamy consistency – this takes a second; it gets clumpy before it gets smooth.
-In separate bowl, mix together dry toppings. The amount is up to you; enjoy in moderation for a healthier snack.
-Spread 1 layer of apple slices on plate, sprinkle with cinnamon, drizzle sauce, then sprinkle with toppings. Add remaining apples to top layer, drizzle remaining sauce, then sprinkle with toppings.
A friend introduced me to these sweet treats and now it’s my turn to pass them along!
They’re a healthy snack… easy to pop on the go!
My husband loves a few of them just before he works out; I like to have one (or two!) after I feed the baby.
Plus, this sweat treat is KID APPROVED. No dairy or eggs, either 🙂
The ingredients are simple:
