Here is a very simple snack you can make with your children...



Prep time: 15 minutes
Tools: various cookie cutter
Yield: 3 servings


Ingredients:

3 pieces of whole-wheat bread
Butter for spreading (I left this out)
2 Tbs. Peanut butter, smooth
Finely slicked apples pieces

Step One: Toast the bread in a toaster or toaster oven until lightly brown.

Step Two: Using a cookie cutter, gently press the cutter into each piece of toast to cut the desired shape. Discard the extra pieces of bread. (or use them to make some not so pretty peanut butter and apple toast for yourself...that's what I did.)

Step Three: Place each toast shape on a plate, lightly butter, and spread 1 Tbs. of peanut butter over each piece of buttered toast. Place the apple slices as desired on top of the peanut butter and serve.

What a great recipe to use as a fun snack or even a great lunch/breakfast idea! You wouldn't have to cut them out in cute shapes, but it does make the snack that much more appealing. Yummy!

When my kids were young I'd give them a piece of bread, a slice of cheese, a piece of sandwich meat and a mini cookie cutter. They had a blast cutting up their food and eating it :)
