This recipe for an easy after school snack cinnamon apples is one that could have been healthy until I covered it in butter. Whoops!
Since school is back in I have been thinking about the snacks that I had when I was in school. Some are healthy, some not so much.
It is delicious though. Apples really are the perfect after school snack. There are so many ways to prepare them. You can serve them with peanut butter, cheese, Nutella, your favorite fruit dip, or just straight from your crisper drawer! Although this recipe might take a little bit more time than snagging one from the fridge, it is totally worth it and still not all that time consuming to prepare. This is the perfect treat if you’re looking for something sweet without a whole lot of added extras. The simple sweetness of the apple combined with the sugary perfection of brown sugar and all that buttery goodness really makes each bite taste like a little bit of homemade apple pie with hardly any of the effort. YUM! Really, your kids could probably make these cinnamon brown sugar apples all on their own without too much help from mom. We are big fans of honey crisp apples at our house but you can substitute for your favorite kind of apples or whatever you happen to have in the fridge.
