Fall Apple Treats - healthier version


Tis the season for all things pumpkin and apple. Apple picking is a family tradition for us. Sadly none of our children like applesauce, apple pie or apple crisp. They are more just plain old apple kids. I wanted to make some sort of treat using the apples we picked at the orchard.  



  Trying to come up with some fall-like creative snack ideas for the children can be a task.  Here is a quick healthier version of the traditional candy apple. 



Using Macintosh apples, organic honey and organic graham crackers you can create a fun and healthy snack for after school.  

You will need some sort of stick in the center of your apple. 

 Dipping each apple into a plate of honey, rolling it around and getting is nice and sticky.  

Then smash up (the kids can help with this one) the graham crackers in a sealed baggie. 

Next roll the honey coated apples into the smashed up cracker mix.  Let them set up on some parchment paper and there you go!

What recipes do you use with the abundance of apples this time of year?  Would love some new recipes!
