Looking for healthy lunch ideas for yourself and the kids? I highly recommend these Apple and Sunflower Butter Sandwiches. I have always loved ants on a log; this is very similar, but maybe better??? Even if you aren’t still brown bagging it, I think this is a great snack for after school or after a workout.
Slice apples horizontally. Remove core with apple corer. If you don’t have an apple corer, you can use a cookie cutter or a knife.
If you are not going to eat them right away I would pour some lemon juice on the apples to keep them from getting brown.
Spread a copious amount of sunflower seed butter on one side of an apple side. Add your desired toppings. Sometimes I get crazy and add all 3 toppings. Put and apple slice on top.
Repeat until apple sandwiches are made. Then eat and enjoy!
If I had known about these sandwiches, I would have taken them to school instead of that old PB & J.
What did you take in your school lunches?

When I made these Apple and Sunflower Butter Sandwiches previous I would slather the apples with the nut butter and then put on toppings. When I made these babies for my 3 o’clock snack today I mixed in a small handful (about 2-3 tablespoons) of Purely Elizabeths Hemp Granola and a pinch (maybe a 1/2 teaspoon) of gluten free vegan mini chocolate chips right into the sunflower seed butter before applying to the apple slices.
Either way, YUM!
