"My kids love to spread peanut butter on their apples, so one day I thought I would take a favorite of theirs and just tweak it a little bit....voila, a peanut butter and apple sandwich. PB and J can get boring after a while and this provides a healthy alternative." — SAIDANDDUNN

whole wheat bread
peanut butter, or to taste
apple - peeled, cored and shredded
My wife loves this sandwich, but I use a cheese slicer to make thin slices of apple to place between the slices of the peanut-buttered bread.
I used to just slice a thin layer and place in the sandwich. Slicing is a really neat idea! For lunches I mixed the shredded apple in a little lemon juice to keep the apple from turning brown.
An even healthier idea, leave out the bread. Use sliced apples to dip into a little container of PB or cut apple in half, core, then fill each side with PB & put back together before bagging for lunch. Just pull apart before eating. Also, celery sticks filled with PB or cream cheese with raisins on top are a healthy delicious snack.
Simple and delicious - great for a quick snack! I love peanut butter and apples. It not only tastes good, but it's good for you! I toasted my whole grain bread so the peanut butter go a little "melty" and instead of shredding the apple I just sliced it extra thin. I added just a bit of cinnamon to the apple and it was yummy. I can't wait to try this with crunchy peanut butter!
Wanted to make another suggestion...try this combination on a tortilla and eat as a wrap. You could also try, for a change, using shredded celery or carrot in place of the apple.
I call this the "apple pie" sandwich! I don't shred the apple but just cut really thin slices and stack as many as i can on the bread. I PB both sides so it will stick together and I add a little cinnamon!! YUMMMMMMM!!!!!
this was one of my favs as a child, bananas work well to, and to make this meal or snack into an activity the kids can make there own, spread peanutbutter on one piece of bread and have cut apples, bananas, and even cereal ready for them to put on top, you can toast the bread to make it easier for them to work with
This is a great alternative to regular PB&J. I like thinly sliced apples and a few raisins too.
