FFF: Apples, Apples Everywhere!

on September 21, 2012

Hello Parents,

There are so many fun fall postings around the web lately, and well, even though we don’t enjoy fall weather in South Florida we still want to enjoy some delicious fall eats. Here are two fabulous apple snack and lunch ideas you can make for your kids, straight from the Babble Family Kitchen (can you tell we’ve been loving that blog lately?).

First up: Homemade Apple Chip Snacks

What you’ll need:
2 large apples (Gala or Idared work well)
2 Tbsp. sugar (or to taste)
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 200˚F.

Thinly slice apples crosswise about 1/8-inch thick with a mandoline or sharp knife. Arrange apple slices in a single layer on two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets.

In small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Put mixture into a sieve and sprinkle evenly over apple slices.

Bake in the top and bottom third of the oven until apples are dry and crisp, about 2 hours. Remove from oven and let ‘chips’ cool completely before transferring to a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Makes about 2 cups apple chips.

Next up: Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches

PB Apple Sandwich 005 533x800 Easy After School Snack: PB Apple Sandwiches

What you’ll need: {1 apple makes 2-3 sandwiches depending on how thick you slice your apples}
apple – sliced & cores removed
approximately 1 tablespoon per sandwich peanut butter
approximately 1 teaspoon per sandwich chocolate chips – optional

1. Spread peanut butter onto apple circle. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Place another apple circle on top. Press gently to seal.

2. Continue until you have desired amount of sandwiches.

Be sure to leave us comments and let us know if you have any favorite go-to recipes that your kids love.

Fun Learning!
