Apple Peanut Butter Sandwiches

What happens if you remove bread from PB&J? Something amazing like the apple (low sugar crispy fruit ring) sandwiches with your kids' favorite nut butter. 


1 cup of rolled oats
1 tablespoon of raisins, dates, or dried cranberries
4-5 tablespoons of no sugar peanut butter
1 teaspoon of local honey or agave nectar or natural sugar substitute
1 large apple cut into 1 inch rings (decored/seeds removed)
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
1/4 tsp. of ginger


1Heat up the oats in a pan on medium heat with the cinnamon and ginger. Using a wooden spatula toss in the heat until browned. Remove from heat and place in a medium sized mixing bowl, add the rest of the ingredients minus the apple rings.
2Taking two rings at a time, spread 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture between each set of rings.
3Best served/eaten as soon as assembled to avoid browning of the apples. Enjoy!
