Snack recipe: Apples, Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Seed Stacks

| February 01, 2012

I am declaring February my Healthy Obsession Snack Month. I’ll try to post a new snack recipe at least twice a week. I’d love to hear from you about your own favorite snacks, as well as whether you enjoyed making the ones I’ve suggested. Check out my Jan. 23, 2012, entry for a Gorp recipe, or skip ahead to the one below!

Apple, Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Seed Stacks

1 medium-sized apple
2 tablespoons unsalted natural peanut butter
1/8 cup salted pumpkin seeds (or sunflower seeds)

Thoroughly wash the apple, and turn it on its side so the core is parallel with your cutting board. 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 (sunflower) seeds, and place the other four slices on top to make little sandwiches. Enjoy!

Note: At nearly 400 calories, this snack is a hefty one. I would recommend eating half and saving the rest for later. Recipe courtesy http://www.fitsugar.com.
