The Healthiest Sandwich Trick

I love a good hack, and apple sandwiches are kind of my new current favorite. If you use tart apples instead of bread you create a whole new category with texture and a fun factor that is hard to beat.

Recently Siri Daly stopped by to talk about her new book, Siriously Delicious. The wife of famed tv host Carson Daly uses her book and blog to showcase her easy recipes that help her keep her busy family on the go. Siri is one of those people who tries to make life easier and I loved the fun outlook in the book. But these  apple sandwiches with nut butter and granola have made me a convert.

So watch the video below a make the recipe for yourself - it is siriously (ha) one of the easiest 10 minute meals you could possibly have.

Apple, Nut Butter, and Granola Sandwiches

Serves 4

1⁄3 cup creamy almond butter or other nut butter
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced crosswise into 8 rings
1⁄4 cup granola
2 tablespoons golden raisins

Spread about 3⁄4 tablespoon of almond butter onto 4 of the apple rings. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon granola and about 1⁄2 tablespoon raisins. Top with the remaining 4 apple rings; press gently to form sandwiches.
