If you’re feeling like having something a little different for lunch, or mixing things up for your kids school lunch, these apple sandwiches are perfect! I love the idea of having a simple and easy sandwich, but I don’t love eating that much bread every day, so I particularly love these. They are also one of my kids favorite after school snacks, but they don’t like to wait for food to get ‘fixed’ so I try to have them ready before they walk in the door.
To make these you take an eating apple (dimpled kind, not the all round and fat kind, like Granny’s that are for baking) like Fuji, Breaburn, Gala etc and slice it horizontally. Cut out the core from the slices (or core, then slice; I just always have problems doing it that way :)). On one apple slice, spread with 1 Tbsp peanut butter, then top with another apple slice. Use remaining apple slices to make a second sandwich.
