Apple Snack Sandwiches


If it’s not Christmas soon, I’m going to lose it.

You think I’m kidding.

But I have 2 pieces of not terrible news.

1. Brown Eyed Baker posted about this 30 days of gratitude project and I’m totally going to do it! I was wanting to blog about things I’m thankful for but I just haven’t been consistent since I’ve been busy and such. The idea is to take a picture everyday of something you’re thankful for, and there are suggestions for each day. I’m starting tomorrow so I’ll be doing this into December. But I can still be thankful in December, right? ;)

2. I made these apple snack sandwiches to share with you! I saw them on Live Love Pasta the other day. I thought it was such a neat idea and a super easy snack. I was looking around at Live Love Pasta and there are some great recipes there! I have a ton bookmarked that I want to make soon.

I made these apple sandwiches with peanut butter, raisins, and chocolate chips. I liked the peanut butter and chocolate chip version the best! But the raisins were good, too, and probably healthier…although chocolate is good for the soul! Or so I hear :)

I hope you are all having wonderful weeks and that, even if they’re busy, you’re finding time to relax and be thankful. I am thankful that I have access to fresh food everyday at my house and that I don’t have to worry about going hungry. It’s something we all take for granted, but there are so many people in this world who don’t have food to eat and I need to be better about being thankful that I do.

Apple Snack Sandwiches

Ingredients:

1 apple

Peanut Butter (or nutella would be tasty too!)

Chocolate chips or raisins

Directions:

  1. Slice and apple…umm circle way. Haha you want to cut the top off so you’re making circles. I was able to get 5 circle slices out of my apple but only used 4 of them.
  2. Spread peanut butter on one side of your apple slice.
  3. Sprinkle it with raisins, chocolate chips, or whatever else you want.
  4. Put the other apple slice on top and enjoy!

Banana Bread…Finally!

The other morning for breakfast (well it was 11am…so late breakfast) I was going to have frosted mini wheats. They are one of my favorite cereals! I had it all poured out in the bowl and then opened the fridge and…no milk. Gah! I hate when this happens! And then after that I didn’t want to eat anything else because I had my mind set on cereal. So I sat and sulked for a while. And then I decided to make banana bread with the 3 very ripe bananas we had on the counter.

I love banana bread so much but whenever I made it, I was never pleased with the results. It was always too dry or not very flavorful. I had a lot of banana recipes saved that I wanted to try out and I finally did! I was so incredibly happy with the results! I will definitely look forward to making this again. Oh it was also super easy to make! And the oven didn’t stop working..I would have to say it was better than frosted mini wheats :)

Banana Bread

Recipe from 4littlefergusons on Tasty Kitchen

Ingredients:

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar (not packed)

1 stick butter, softened

1 egg

4 tablespoons sour cream

1 ½ cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 whole over-ripe bananas, blended so that they’re liquid

Directions:

  1. Cream together first 5 ingredients.
  2. Slowly add the flour and then the baking soda and salt. Add the blended bananas.
  3. Put in a greased bread loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. (How easy was that?!?)
  4. Then enjoy the super not-dry and tasty bread! Usually I always put butter on breads and muffins, but this really doesn’t need it! Which is kinda crazy because I love butter!
