It's Apple Season

Fall is in the air and you know what that means - it's apple season! If you haven't already picked a bushel of apples, I suggest you get out there.  There are so many tasty treats to make with apples, but sometimes nothing beats a fresh, crisp apple.

Besides cinnamon, peanut butter is a great compliment for apples.  If you ask me, peanut butter is a great compliment to almost any food, but that's another story.  My problem usually lies in eating peanut butter within moderation.  I usually have a jar of "fancy" nut butter in the cabinet, but for some snacks I like to use PB2.  It's a powdered peanut butter that can be mixed with water, milk, shakes, yogurt, etc.  It's great because it contains nearly 85% less fat calories than traditional nut butters, but it still gives you the rich, creamy peanut butter flavor.  Add it to apple slices and you have a great afternoon snack.

PB2 Apple Slices
  • 1 apple
  • 1 T PB2 or chocolate PB2
  • 2 T plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 t cacao nibs
  1. Core the apple and slice it into slices
  2. Stir together the PB2 and Greek yogurt
  3. Spread the peanut butter yogurt onto the apple slices
  4. Sprinkle with cacao nibs
