summer eats: apple 'cookies'


well summer is definitely in full swing around here. yesterday we hit our first day with triple digits. Lord, help us.
 
that will mean less time outside and more time indoors, which leads to more snacking.
or is it only in my home?
and with the temperatures being so high, we crave something fresh and yummy.
i'm not one to crave baked goods in the summer. leave that for sweater weather with a good cup of hot cocoa.
now i won't take credit for these. i saw them on pinterest, of course.
seeing that i had most ingredients in my home already, we gave it a whirl. and honestly, these were so yummy and just sweet enough to give any sweet tooth craving a good punch.

you'll need the above. simply spread peanut/almond butter on the apple slices, and then top with raisins and coconut.
you can do as many or as little toppings as you like! my daughter tried to even do mini marshmallows. nice try little one, nice try.

what snacks has your crew been snacking on this summer?

This looks super yummy (and easy enough that I can bake it).
