How To Make A “Bapple”
1 small (lunch box sized) apple
1-2 tablespoons of your favorite nut butter such as almond butter, cashew butter or even Nutella
Handful of granola, graham crackers or Wild Oats Marketplace Organic Crunchy Oats Honey Granola Bars, crushed (or if your are using the granola bars tear in smaller pieces)
Raisins, dried cranberries or chocolate chips for garnish (optional)
Wash apple, core and cut in half. Using a melon baller or spoon, make a hollow in the center of each apple side, removing about 1/4 of the apple pulp. Fill each apple half with about 1 tablespoon of nut butter. Sprinkle with granola or a few of the graham crackers and cinnamon and nutmeg. Then sprinkle on a few chocolate chips, raisins or dried cranberries. Enjoy!
