Healthy Snack or Lunch Idea: Apple Peanut Butter Rounds

I make this all the time for a healthy afternoon snack to hold me over until dinner or sometimes I eat this for lunch with a handful of G.F. pretzels and a piece of dark chocolate.

I also make this for Layla as a snack by thinly slicing the apple and just topping it with smooth peanut butter and cutting the "sandwiches" into strips that are easy to eat. I like to cut away the skin to make it easier for her to chew.

Apple and Peanut Butter Rounds

1 apple-sliced into thin rounds (save the other part of the apple for snacking)
1-2 tbsp all natural peanut butter or almond butter
Handful of raisins
Drizzle of honey
Toasted pine nuts,  chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds

Thinly slice the apple into 8 rounds. Top 4 apple rounds with peanut butter, raisins, nuts and drizzle with a little honey. Top each round with the other 4 apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy!
