Apple Afternoon Snacks

Yield: Serves 6


  • 2 red delicious apples
  • Lemon juice
  • ½ cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 whole graham crackers


  1. Core apples and cut each in half. Cut each half into three wedges to make a total of 12 wedges. Dip wedges in lemon juice to prevent browning and place in a single layer on microwave safe plate or baking dish.
  2. Cover loosely with waxed paper and microwave on high for 3 ½ to 4 minutes or until apples are tender and hold their shape. (If microwave doesn't have carousel, rotate dish halfway through cooking).
  3. Drain apples on paper towels.
  4. In small bowl, combine peanut butter, honey and cinnamon. Snap graham crackers in half to make 12 square crackers.
  5. Spread a layer of peanut butter mixture on each of six squares; top each cracker with two apple wedges.
