Why I Don’t Make Apple Sandwiches (anymore)

I remember when I first discovered apple sandwiches on pinterest. I thought the idea was so novel and I’m sure you’ve seen the idea floating around the internet. I decided to try it out. It was seriously the best thing I ever tasted. I ate it at least once every day. This is the general process.

Slice the apple. Using a cookie cutter or apple corer cut out the core, or a knife works too but it’s not as neat looking. Can we just take a minute to notice the lime green (I guess you would actually call it apple green) apple shaped cutting board and the lime green (again probably apple green) apple-picture apple corer. This is very matchey-match, is it not? Totally unintentional.

Spread your peanut butter. I like creamy but crunchy works fine.

Sprinkle some granola on two of your apple slices and add chocolate chips or raisins to the other two (or more granola).

Then stick it together.

After a while this process became irksome to me. Peanut butter does not like to stick to apples; I got more on my hands than the slices. The granola always landed everywhere but the peanut butter and precision with the chocolate chips was tedious. So now I cut apples like a normal person…

Add some granola and chocolate chips to a small dish,

Smear in some peanut butter,

And stir it around. It’s the same flavor combination with about half the work. You’re welcome.

Oh boy, you’re in for a treat!
