Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth with these Apple Cookies

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? The perfect ‘throw-together’ snack for a last-minute play date when there’s no time to pop to the shops.

Four ingredients, which can be substituted as your pantry allows, and a few minutes to assemble is all that’s needed to make rumbling tummies happy.

Vegan, raw, gluten-free


1 apple
¼  cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
¼  cup granola
Chocolate bits


  1. Remove core of apple and slice into even rings.
  2. Spread with peanut or nut butter and top with granola and chocolate bits. You can also use coconut flakes or any seeds you have handy.
