After School Apple “Pies”

  • Author: Joanie Simon

  • Yield: 8 - 12 1x


Sliced apple rounds make for a creative after school snack with nuts, fruit and granola.


  • 2 large apples (your favorite variety)
  • 3 Tbs sunflower seed butter (or nut butter)
  • 3 Tbs agave nectar (or honey)
  • 4 Tbs granola (I used 18 Rabbits Cherry Vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 2 tsp chia seeds


  1. Slice apples into 1/6 inch slices through the middle so that they are rounds
  2. Combine sunflower seed butter and agave until it’s an easily spreadable consistency (add more or less agave depending on the consistency of your seed/nut butter)
  3. Put the sunflower butter spread into a ziplock bag and snip off one end to create a piping bag.
  4. Pipe sunflower butter onto the surface of an apple slice.
  5. Sprinkle with granola, dried cherries and chia.
  6. Repeat until all apple slices are used.
  7. Serve immediately (apples will brown if they sit out too long in slices) *spray the apples with lemon juice if you are taking these somewhere or need to make in advance.
