Mother's Day is this coming Sunday, and to celebrate I'm posting kid friendly recipes all week. I may be alone in this, but sometimes I have trouble figuring out different healthy(ish) options to serve my toddler, especially easy lunch recipes, and my idea of celebrating mothers is to have five new easy recipe options. Happy Mother's Day!
I tried this recipe originally out of curiosity more than anything, but my daughter and I liked it so much it is now in regular rotation at our house. It is so simple it almost doesn't even qualify as a recipe, but I had never heard of anything like it before. First you shred an apple, then mix it with peanut butter, honey and raisins and divide it over toasted bread to make a sandwich spread that is fun and different. Its flavor reminds me of peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but with a twist. The spread is fairly sweet as written, but you don't use much per sandwich so it balances out. You could easily adjust the amounts to your preference or go crazy and add extra ingredients like sunflower seeds or chopped peanuts for crunch. If you have kids who like to help out in the kitchen this is a great meal to make with them if you don't mind a little mess because they can help with the shredding, toasting and mixing and the exact amounts aren't essential.
