Healthy Apple Medallions

Healthy Apple Medallions

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

2 apples
4 to 6 tbsps almond butter
6 tbsps dried fruit (any to your liking!)
5 tbsps shredded coconut

Yields: About 10 apple slices

Process:

  1. 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.
  2. Wash and core your apple. Cut it into round slices.
  3. 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.
  4. Enjoy!

  1. 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.
