  1. If you won’t be eating these tasty treats right away, start by brushing the apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
  2. Spread one side of half of the apple slices with a natural peanut butter. Top with remaining apple slices, pressing down gently to make the sandwiches.

Ingredient rationale

  1. Apples should be consumed from August to February. Apples are rich in sugars (glucose, fructose, and sucrose). They contain useful amounts of fibre, vitamin C and potassium. Guercetin, a flavonoid that may help protect against heart disease, is also present.
  2. Peanuts are a source of plant protein. They are rich in Vitamin B6 which helps store energy and caries oxygen in the body.
