Peanut Butter Apple Bowls

I'm experimenting with after school snack ideas while I have the time ☺. Getting my ducks in a row, as it were, before school craziness hits. This is delicious! Adapt for your family's needs; I think the filling is good by itself and am contemplating making just that up and tucking it into some kiddos' lunch boxes come August...

Peanut Butter Apple Bowls

~adapted from a Kroger flyer

  • 1 apple*
  • 2 1/2 t. sunflower seeds (peanuts would work well, too)
  • 2 T. raisins
  • ground cinnamon, to taste
  • 1 T. orange juice concentrate
  • peanut butter

*depending on size of apple, you may need more/less of the other filling ingredients

  1. Cut top off of apple horizontally. Core apple, making sure to remove all seeds. Hollow out the apple and set aside apple pieces (chop into small pieces if necessary).
  2. In a small bowl, combine sunflower seeds, raisins, and apple pieces. Dust with cinnamon. Add orange juice concentrate; mix well and set aside.
  3. Smear peanut butter inside apple to coat. Fill the apple with the raisin mixture.
~Serves 1
