Apple Sandwiches with Almond Butter and Granola

Make snacking simple with these 3-ingredient Apple Sandwiches with Almond Butter and Granola. 

Apple Sandwiches with Almond Butter and Granola

My kids come home from school completely ravenous. They drop everything (right in the doorway, usually), and make a beeline for the kitchen. Through trial and error, I’ve learned that it’s pointless to have a meaningful discussion with Bridget about her day until after she’s had an after school snack. That’s why I love these Apple Sandwiches with Almond Butter and Granola. Although they are a snap to whip together, they are totally kid-friendly and pack a protein-rich punch to ensure their bellies stay full until dinner. 

These sandwiches are portable and don’t require refrigeration, which makes them ideal for those afternoons when we have errands or appointments right after school. They would also be great nibbles to have on hand either before or after sports practices. Just a little something to stave off the “I’m going to die of hunger!” complaints. And assembly couldn’t be simpler, although you might want to consider buying an inexpensive apple corer just to make the whole process even easier. 

Now go choose your favorite granola (we’re currently crushing on the Oats ‘n Dark Chocolate Nature Valley Protein Crunchy Granola), your favorite apple variety and nut butter, and get snacking!

    What a great alternative to bread and a wonderful way to eat an apple. I love Whole Earth organic no sugar peanut butter and would probably use that too as almond butter isn’t always that easy to find where I live.

    I hate apples 😛 , so this seems like a fabulous way to drop the into my tummy! I would only make one modification: replace the almond butter with peanut butter 😛

    I shall happily ignore one of the most boring fruits on the planet when it is layered with a tbsp of the greatest butter ever 😛

    Thank you so much #HUGS
