This quick snack is naturally sweet and, oh, so satisfying. When you’re rifling through the pantry and scanning the refrigerator for something to curb your cravings, try this recipe. You’re bound to have the ingredients on hand and it only takes a couple of minutes to prepare.
My kids also love to have this toasted apple treat as an after-school snack. It’s just the right balance of complex carbohydrates and protein to hold them over until dinner (or to keep me from diving into something else I would regret!), and the natural sweetness makes it a favorite for them.
2 slices Ezekiel bread
1 small apple, peeled and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons nut butter
Cinnamon to taste
1 tablespoon low-fat natural yogurt
2 teaspoons honey
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread nut butter on bread, and arrange a thin layer of apple slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey. Bake until lightly toasted. Remove from oven, and drizzle with yogurt. For a nut-free version, use apple butter instead of nut butter.
