While we call them apple 'cookies' they aren't really cookies at all- they are way healthier (but the kids don't need to know that!) :)

My kids love apples. So at least once a week lately we have our apple cookie bar. I take out the center of the apples, cut them into thin slices and set out toppings.  The kids get to decorate their own- some of their creations are rather interesting!

Toppings can be anything really. Our favorites include peanut butter (or almond butter), unsweetened coconut, chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries, chia seeds (they think they are sprinkles!), nuts, etc.

This is definitely a healthy and fun alternative for snack time! Leave a comment with any new topping ideas I can test out with my gang!
