Crunchy Apple & Nut Butter Snack

Belated Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it!  I hope you are all enjoying the festivities and gearing yourself up for the New Year.

Do any of you make resolutions for the new year?  I used to make some when I was younger but by mid-January they had been forgotten about!  This year I’m going to try something different, instead of resolutions where I have to give up something, I’m going to try to add something to my life!

So far I’ve come up with the following;

Join a yoga class (I already do yoga DVDs but I thought going to a class will be great to meet people) / Create a wee vegetable patch or get a small green house to grow my own vegetables / try some recipes from my ever growing cookbook collection / stop worrying so much (not sure how this one will work!)

As I’ve now written these down and shared them with you, I’ll update you periodically about how I am getting on!  I’d love to hear your resolutions.

The following recipe is easy, I’m not sure it even counts as a recipe!  But the other day I wanted something with a bit of crunch yet filling and came up with this snack.  It helped the afternoon slump and staved off hunger until dinner time! Certainly more filling and nutritious than a bag of crisps.

apple snack ingredients

I used almond butter but any nut butter will do as will any variety of nuts if you don’t have any granola to hand.


-1 apple, thinly sliced in to discs

-2 Tbsp. nut butter

-2 Tbsp. granola or chopped nuts

How To Make

Slather the nut butter onto the apple discs and sprinkle on the granola.  Ta Dah!

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I look forward to sharing more recipes with you all in 2014.
