RECIPE: Apple Cookies

Fall is upon us. Which means delicious, crisp apples!  A dear friend shared this genius idea of-a-fun-snack-or-healthy-dessert with me when we wanted stopped at her place for lunch, breaking up our 5 hour drive from the NC coast to the mountains.  Not only did she provide an exceptionally tasty, healthy lunch of chicken salad lettuce wraps and prosciutto with melon; she busted out these little numbers, which thrilled us and our kiddos–who loved making them.  This will be my new go-to kids, crafty cookie decorating recipe!  They are clean, healthy and oh so scrumptious. Enjoy.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Apple*

1/4 cup shredded, non-sweetened coconut

4 Tbsp Almond or Peanut Butter

20 Chocolate chips (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS (kinda a no brainer here):

  1. Slice thin cross sections of apple.
  2. Smear on nut butter.
  3. Sprinkle coconut.
  4. Place chocolate chips on top (optional)
  5. Enjoy!

 

 

*Remember apples are one of the “Dirty Dozen” so Buy ORGANIC–unless you like cancer.
