Bored of the usual banana and peanut butter on toast before sweating it out? Here's a sweet alternative that offers quick carbs and a little protein to fuel your next workout. Made with just three ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, all you need is a food processor and five minutes. This sweet and fruity spread complements the saltiness of the crackers to satisfy salty-sweet cravings in no time.
For only 43 calories per serving, you won't believe the bold and fresh flavor. Keep reading for the easy recipe.
- 1 medium apple
1/8 cup raw almonds (about 18)
1 tablespoon orange juice
- Remove the core from the apple, and cut into chunks.
- Place all ingredients in a NutriBullet or food processor, and blend until smooth but slightly chunky — not too long or you'll have applesauce.
- Spoon out 1/4 of the spread on 100 calories' worth of crackers, and enjoy (I used 11 stoned wheat bite-size crackers). Share the rest, or store it in the fridge in a sealed container for next time.
