If you are travelling with your kids, you can use the same recipe but instead, halve and core the apples with a teaspoon, stuff peanut butter and sprinkle oats. Put it in a container and slice the apple into wedges when your kids feel hungry during the trip. This is a variation of a recipe from Whole Foods Market.
- 2 small apples, cored and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick rounds
- 3 Tbsp organic peanut or almond butter
- 2 Tbsp of raw cacao nibs or raisins
- 3 Tbsp granola or rolled oats
- Spread one side of half of the apple slices with peanut or almond butter and sprinkle with cacao nibs and granola. Top with remaining apple slices to make sandwiches. Brush the apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
If your family likes something salty, you can use this recipe from the book Raw Food Made Easy.
- 1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped zucchini (about 1 zucchini)
- 2 Tbsp tahini
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
