Snack Attack: Apple, Peanut Butter, and Pumpkin Seed Stacks

Take advantage of Fall's harvest and pick up some fresh apples for this healthy and delicious snack. The apples will not only satisfy your sweet tooth and your need to crunch, but they're also a great source of fiber. I used Pink Lady apples for this recipe, but you can use any variety you like. Munch on these stackers for breakfast or a light lunch, or cut the recipe in half if you just want to make a little snack.

To learn how to whip up this quick treat and see the nutritional info for it keep on reading.

  • Thoroughly wash a medium-sized apple.
  • Turn it on its side so the core is parallel with your cutting board, and cut it into four slices. Cut each slice in half and remove the core and seeds.
  • Smear a half tablespoon of peanut butter on four slices. Sprinkle each with some pumpkin seeds, and place the other four slices on top to make little sandwiches. Enjoy!

This easy snack contains:

1 medium apple 96 .1 25.1 4.4 .5
2 tablespoons unsalted natural peanut butter 190 2 7 3 8

I tend to stick to under 200 calories for snacks but it might be tempting.

Just made this. I didn't have pumpkin seeds so I used sunflower kernels. So good!

Pumpkin seeds! I love those little things. This snack looks delicious! I'm glad that you didn't scrimp on the peanut butter... I'm sick of healthy snacks listing just one teaspoon. Two tablespoons is the way to go. It's PEANUT BUTTER, after all! :-)
