1 large or medium apple- cored but not peeled
Stuff apple with peanut butter, raisins, wheat germ and drizzle with honey.
Top with coconut or crushed granola
Dig in with a spoon or have fun trying to eat with your hands!
You may wish to microwave the empty cored apple for a few seconds to allow it to soften a bit.
This snack will travel well in a lunchbox or to a play date- the stuffing will help stop browning of the apple.
