Two Healthy Snacks: Kale Chips & Apple-Peanut Butter Sandwiches

apple-peanut-butterI wanted to share with you a clever recipe I saw on the Whole Foods Market website for a creative snack or even lunch:

1 large apple (granny smith or red of your choice) sliced in solid l/2″ thick circles like a disc; 2 Tablespoons of peanut or almond butter, divided;  dried cranberries or low sugar granola sprinkled over the peanut/almond butter.

Take the apple slice and smear with almond/peanut butter and cranberries or granola over it.  Make a sandwich with the two slices of apple as the “bread”.  Its that easy!

Makes a healthy fruit, protein, fat and fiber snack or meal.  If its your lunch, eat the whole apple and full serving of peanut butter and if its a snack eat half that portion and save for another time.

· Oil spray

· 1 large bunch kale

· Kosher salt


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Lightly coat baking sheet with oil spray.  Trim the ends off the kale and tear leaves into 2-inch pieces and spread them onto the baking sheet.  Mist the kale with oil spray and lightly sprinkle with salt.  Bake for 10 minutes, or until the kale is crispy to the touch and the edges are beginning to brown.
