Apple & Nut Butter

Do you really need a recipe for this uber-simple and incredibly delicious snack Apple & Nut Butter ?

Probably not.

BUT we had some friends staying earlier in the year and they hadn’t ever tried this sweet and salty flavour explosion combo so I made a mental note to write it up as a recipe.

For my boys their number one favourite is smooth peanut butter.

But I’m a fan of mixing it up with either almond butter, tahini or my home made macadamia butter.

Apple & Nut Butter

Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 1 apple
  • 2-3 tablespoons nut butter


  1. Slice apple in half lengthwise. Then slice into quarters and cut out the seeds. Slice each quarter into 3 slivers. So you have 12 slices of apple in total.
  2. Spread a little peanut butter on the end of each apple slice. Enjoy!
