Peanut Butter Dusted Apples

Peanut butter dusted apples are a delightful and nutritious snack that combines the sweet and crisp freshness of apples with the creamy richness of peanut butter. It’s an easy and satisfying treat for both kids and adults. Here’s how to make peanut butter dusted apples:

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 apples (any variety you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey (optional, for drizzling)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (optional, for garnish)
  • A pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)

Instructions:

1. Wash and Slice the Apples:

a. Start by washing the apples thoroughly. You can peel them if you prefer, but leaving the skin on adds extra fiber and nutrients.

b. Core the apples and cut them into thin slices or wedges. You can choose the size and style that you like.

2. Prepare the Peanut Butter:

a. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the smooth peanut butter for about 20-30 seconds until it’s slightly melted. This will make it easier to drizzle over the apple slices.

3. Drizzle the Peanut Butter:

a. Arrange the apple slices on a serving platter or individual plates.

b. Using a spoon, drizzle the slightly melted peanut butter over the apple slices. You can also use a zip-top plastic bag with the corner snipped off to create a more controlled drizzle.

4. Optional Sweetener:

a. If you prefer a touch of sweetness, you can drizzle honey over the peanut butter-dusted apples. It adds a lovely contrast to the natural tartness of the apples.

5. Garnish:

a. For some extra texture and flavor, sprinkle chopped peanuts over the peanut butter-dusted apples. This adds a delightful crunch and enhances the peanut flavor.

b. If you like, you can also sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon over the apples for a warm and aromatic touch.

6. Serve:

a. Serve your peanut butter dusted apples immediately while they are fresh and crisp.

Enjoy this simple and satisfying snack or dessert that combines the goodness of apples and the rich creaminess of peanut butter. It’s a delightful treat that’s both wholesome and delicious!
