Simple and delicious - great for a quick snack! I love peanut butter and apples but warm them up so the peanut butter is nice and melty and place them both between two slices of toasty, warm, crunchy bread and have a really nice treat. I used a Granny Smith apple and I can't wait to try this with crunchy peanut butter.


I made this for my son's lunch. He is strictly a PB&J kid. He was a little upset that I made something different. I called them "Apple Pie Sandwhiches" Not only were they a hit but now the other moms want the recipe. I did mine differently. I sauteed the apples in a skillet with butter, cinnamon and sugar. Then set the apples aside. I browned the bread on the skillet with the butter I used for the apples. Then I put peanut butter on the side of the untoasted bread slices, spooned the apples over one peanut butter slice and placed the other on top. I cut them in fourths for easier handling. I made these for my other kids too. It was the first time lunch time was silent.


This was really yummy-tasted more like dessert than lunch. The cinnamon/sugar could probably be adjusted to suit taste. I used PB on both sides of the bread and added cin/sug. to the tops of the bread while frying which gave it a fried dough taste. My 5 yr old said this was the best lunch she's had in her whole life ;-. Next time, I'd like to try actually grilling these in on a panini grill to maybe cut down on the calories. Thanks!
