Apple Wedge Dessert

We love apples at our house! Apples are a great food to include in your kids' diets. Not only do they taste great, but apples are a good source of fiber, they have powerful antioxidants that fight inflammation, and they promote optimal digestion! I love that apples are low in price and you can get them all year round. That is why we love making these apple snacks.

Ingredients

  • 4 apples, cored and sliced
  • 4 Tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 4 Tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 2 Tablespoons granola
  • 2 Tablespoons raisins
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped nuts
  • 1/3 Cup chocolate chips, melted

Directions

For each apple slice, spread 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter or yogurt. Put the coconut, granola, raisins, and chopped nuts into separate bowls. Dip each apple into one of the 4 bowls. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the coated apple slices. Chill in the refrigerator or eat right away.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
