One of my favorite snacks while growing up was the classic apple and peanut butter combo. I would come home from school, change into some comfy clothes, and start munching away on this snack my mom always had ready for me. But recently, I have been enjoying a bit of a fancier version of this classic snack that I call Loaded Apple Slices! For this snack, I load apple sliced with crunchy toppings, peanut butter or any other nut/seed butter of choice, and yogurt. These ingredients can provide a great dose of nutrients like fiber, protein, healthy fats, vitamin D, and calcium. This is a perfect snack for both adults and kids to enjoy. For kids, you can even turn this into a food activity by slicing apples and placing each topping into little cups or cupcake liners so they can create their own little loaded apples slices!

1 small-medium apple
1 tbsp. nut or seed butter of choice (I used organic unsweetened peanut butter)
2 tbsp. yogurt ( I used plain yogurt with a hint of vanilla you can use a dairy-free yogurt of choice for any dairy-free diet)
1 oz. of nuts or granola (Purchase certified gluten-free granola for a gluten-free diet)
Cut both ends off of the apple. Cut the apple into 4 round slices.
Spread 1/2 tbsp. of nut/seed butter each on 2 slices. On the other 2 slices spread 1 tbsp. of yogurt each.
Sprinkle over crushed nuts, seeds, and/or granola. Enjoy!
