One of the greatest challenges of Halloween day is getting my kids to eat good foods before the barrage of Twix, Jolly Ranchers and Smarties. I have a crock pot of overnight oatmeal going right now for breakfast tomorrow, veggies and turkey for lunch, and sushi/pizza plans for dinner. I also have a spooky little Halloween snack treat, so I'm hoping that my kids will be trick or treating on full bellies.
Here's a quick snack that will give your kids a little more nutrition on a day that is hallmarked with sugar. They're fun to look at, tasty, and super easy. Just four ingredients and you have a spooky Halloween treat that isn't candy.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 mouths
1 apple, cored and cut into 8 wedges
1/4 of one banana, cut into chunks
Juice from half a lemon
Sprinkle lemon juice on apple and banana pieces. Spread peanut butter on one side of an apple wedge. Add on a few banana pieces (these will be your teeth). Spread peanut butter on another apple slice, then place on banana peices peanut butter side down to make a complete set. Serve immediately.
