Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

Here’s another one to add to the simple yet brilliant category. My five-year-old thinks they’re the bee’s knees. Any snack that can momentarily distract her from her seemingly constant fixation on sugar is a winner in my book.

I think I’m going to save you from my blather and not post a recipe for this one. It’s obvious from the picture right? All you need is a slice of apple, peanut butter, and raisins and you’re good to go. I do the apple and peanut butter prep and let the child go to town with the raisins. We really know how to live it up here.

These remind me of Apple Flying Saucers which I wrote a recipe for back in 2009.


  1. Simple is often the best. Love it! This might get my kids to eat raisins again…

  2. These are adorable! So quick and yet so fun for kids :)

    My mom used to make this for me 35+ years ago. I recently saw it on a blog and tried it again. I had forgotten how good it is! Now I regularly have apple & PB with lunch. It’s filling, delicious and healthy! You can’t you beat that combo.
