Who Needs Ice Cream? Peanut Butter & Apples, Here We Come

IMG_4701I’m just obsessed with apples and peanut butter.  It’s healthy, vegan and full of fiber and protein.  For added nutritional benefits, you can add a few teaspoons of unsweetened coconut flakes and flax meal.  It’s so delicious, fast and easy to make.  Here’s how: 

  1. Peel and chop one medium sized Gala Apple (into cubes or slices)
  2. Peanut butter- chunky or smooth (I get carried away and usually add a few TBL but be careful since it’s really fattening!)
  3. TSP of each:  Flax meal and Coconut flakes

Put the above ingredients in a  medium sized bowl and stir so that everything gets coated with the peanut butter mixture.  Serve with a small mug of homemade hot chocolate for a real (healthy) splurge.  Enjoy!
