This recipe is from the American Heart Association


1/3 c. dried, unsweetened cranberries or raisins

1/4 c. sliced almonds, unsalted

2 Tbsp. hulled, unsalted sunflower seeds

3 medium apples (red or green), cored and thinly sliced (about 12 pieces per apple)

1 to 2 tsp. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. hot water (extra if needed)

1/4 c. reduced-fat, smooth peanut butter

1 Tbsp. honey


In a small bowl, combine dried cranberries/raisins, almonds and sunflower seeds. Core each apple and thinly slice into about 12 pieces each. Layer half of the apples onto a large plate or platter. If the apple slices will be sitting out for a while, sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Using a microwave oven or teapot, bring 2 tablespoons of water to a boil. In a small bowl, combine hot water, peanut butter and honey. Use a spoon and stir until mixture is smooth. Use a spoon to drizzle the peanut butter mixture over the plated apple slices; sprinkle with half the cranberry mixture. Layer the remaining apples on top and repeat with remaining peanut butter and cranberry mixture. Serve.
