Today, my nieces are back to school from summer vacation. I decided to whip up a fun (and easy!) after-school snack for them to enjoy… because I’m not like those regular aunts; I’m a cool aunt. (Okay, and maybe a little dorky, too.)
I’m all about serving my nieces healthy snacks but keeping them delicious, too. I know how hectic it can be in the afternoon: dinner’s on the stove, you’ve doubled as a mega-house-cleaner and homework tutor, all the while trying to think of ways to give yourself a ten minute break.
I thought about a snack that can help you save on time. My Apple Medallions are not only very tasty, but they’re healthy and easy to prepare. I absolutely adore their simplicity and how every topping is a question of taste and preference. That being said, what I’ve listed on the ingredients list is totally customizable: you can top them with whatever you like!
Healthy Apple Medallions
4 to 6 tbsps almond butter
6 tbsps dried fruit (any to your liking!)
5 tbsps shredded coconut
Yields: About 10 apple slices
- Make things more simple by preparing your ingredients so that your apple slices are ready for garnishing. We put our dried fruit and shredded coconut in separate bowls.
- Wash and core your apple. Cut it into round slices.
- Each apple slice will require about ½ a tablespoon of almond butter. Slather it on and then top with the dried fruit of your choice. Sprinkle on the shredded coconut.

Oh wow this sounds good. I may have to try this!
Please do! It’s so simple to make.
Great snack idea! I used to love apples with peanut butter as a kid but now I think it’s even better with almond butter! Adding coconut and dried fruit is a great idea too.
The coconut adds a nice touch of sweetness and varying texture.
Oooo, I love the idea of using almond butter on there. What a FANTASTIC weekend snack idea!
Same here! The almond butter was definitely my favorite aspect of this recipe.
Yummy! These looks delicious and perfect for fall!
Yes, and so simple to make! I’ll probably be preparing them all month long.
I love apple desserts but have been modifying my diet as of late. I think it is great that these are a healthier option.
I like that these are healthy as well. I’ve been craving fresh things lately.
My kids come home starving but I don’t want to ruin their dinner. These apples sound perfect!
Let me know if you end up trying it and how they like it!
Oh my God! my boyfriend and I will go nuts for this! It’s a recipe from heaven 🙂
If you end up making them, I hope you enjoy them!
