healthy apple rings

This is the perfect snack. And by perfect, I mean healthy, delicious, easy, and healthy. Oh, did I say that twice? … Because it’s true!!
This snack gives a plentiful punch of protein (8g!), fiber (almost 9g!), omega 3’s, & antioxidants; sophisticated enough for any adult and fun for the kiddos. WIN, WIN! These healthy apple rings would be great for breakfast as well! … but today, they were dessert! 🙂

1 large apple (I use pink lady, honeycrisp, etc)

        • In a small bowl, add oats to prepared PB2 and mix.
        • Using an apple corer, carefully core the apple and discard the center.
        • Slice the apple 6 times. You’ll have the bottom, top and 5 inside pieces. Feel free to eat the ends 🙂
        • Top the apple slices with the peanut butter/oat mixture. Then evenly distribute the chocolate and nuts on top of the peanut butter. And that’s it!

I almost felt like I was eating a cookie; crisp, creamy, nutty, chocolatey. Mmm. Perfection.
