Weekly Recipe: Silly Apple Bites

Adapted from www.forkandbeans.com

They’re silly. They’re easy to make. And best of all, they’re allergen-free. No nuts, no gluten, no soy. Just green apples, sunflower butter, sunflower seeds, a strawberry tongue, and a batch of homemade googly eyes. The great part about making these eyes is that you will have a ton leftover. Just store them in an air-tight container and they are good to go.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes, yield: 8 Silly Apple Bites

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 green apples, each quartered
  • sunflower butter
  • 32 sunflower seeds
  • 2-3 strawberries, sliced
  • 2 homemade googly eyes per apple bite

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth. Don’t worry about perfection, you are filling this gap with sunbutter anyway so if you cut too deep, no one will know.
  2. Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of sunflower butter.
  3. Place 4 sunflower seeds on the top of the “mouth” for the teeth.
  4. Place 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth for the tongue.
  5. “Glue” each eye above the mouth with a dab of sunbutter to stick.
