At the beginning of the school year, we parents always have big plans for school lunches and snacks. You know what I mean — we pin and make lists of all the creative and fun ideas we find on Pinterest, all in an effort to make sure we don’t run out of interesting ideas our kids will enjoy. The other thing we’re trying to avoid is having them get bored with what we’re sending them to school with or what we’re feeding to them after school — before November!

For this school year, I’m armed and ready with a list of new ideas to try, but there are those classics that will always have a place on my school snack list and on my kids’ after school snack plates. One of those classic, favourite treats is apple sandwich snacks.
This isn’t a new recipe, you may have even had it when you were little, or maybe you’ve made them before! But for those of you who aren’t familiar, get ready to meet one of the most kid-friendly school and after school snacks you will ever make.
The best parts about it?
- You may not even have to make them, they’re so easy, your kids can make them — and they will have lots of fun doing so. (I do recommend that you do the apple slicing and coring parts, though!)
- They are entirely customizable, based on your kids’ preferences.
- They are allergy-friendly.
To make four apple snack sandwiches, you will need:
- 2 medium apples
- nut butter or an allergy-friendly sunflower butter (see note below)
- toppings (chocolate chips, dried fruit, shredded or flaked coconut, and anything else your kids like!)
- Slice the apples into rings and slice out the cores. Each apple, depending on how big they are, will give you four rings. Make the rings as thick as you like them, I make mine around ¼” thick
- Spread the nut or sunflower butter on four apple rings.
- Add the toppings on top of the nut or sunflower butter.
- Top each side with another apple ring and enjoy!
Recipe note: Any type of nut butter will work (peanut, almond, cashew) and if there is a nut allergy to consider, sunflower seed butter works wonderfully, as well!
