Mini Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwich Recipe Pick your own apples or buy at your local market to try this autumn sandwich.
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash of sea salt
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup raisins
4 medium apples
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 300° F.
Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl.
Combine orange juice, honey and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in oil and vanilla.
Pour honey mixture over oat mixture, stirring to coat. Spread mixture in a thin layer onto a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes, stirring well halfway through.
Stir in raisins and let cool completely.
To assemble sandwiches, core each apple and cut into ¼-inch slices (8 slices per apple). If you won’t be eating these right away, brush the apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown. Spread two teaspoons of peanut butter on eight apple slices then sprinkle with granola. Top with remaining apple slices, pressing down gently to make the sandwiches.
