Fresh fruit always makes for a healthy snack. These granola bites are a tasty way for adults and kids to enjoy the nutritional benefits of fruit and the creamy, delicious flavor of peanut butter. They’re simple to make, quick to whip up and use just three ingredients. They’re perfect for a mid-morning nibble or after-school treat.

These apple peanut butter granola bites are best enjoyed as soon as you make them, when the apple slices are crisp and the granola is crunchy. If you want to make them in advance, they keep well in the refrigerator inside a sealed container for up to one hour, but any longer than that and the apple slices  begin to brown and go soft. You can delay the browning of the apple slices by drizzling them with lemon juice before adding the peanut butter and granola, but they still go soft within a couple of hours.

Ingredients

1 apple

1 tablespoon peanut butter

2 tablespoons granola (or gluten-free granola)

Directions

Core the apple using an apple corer or a sharp knife and slice the rest of the apple into eight evenly sized pieces.

Place a small amount of peanut butter onto the flat top of each apple slice and spread it, covering as much of the top of the apple slice as you can.

Sprinkle the granola onto a plate and dip each apple slice into it, peanut butter-side down, so the granola sticks to the apple.

Pop in your mouth and crunch to your heart’s delight.
