Apple Crispies Recipe

This is a great way for kids (and adults) to feel fuller for longer when snacking on fruit, while the nut butter and cereal add fibre and deliciousness. Plus, it can be whipped up for hungry little mouths in less than a minute.

Serves: 1



  • 2 tbsp nut butter (such as almond, peanut or macadamia)
  • 1 apple, sliced into thin wedges
  • ½ cup brown rice puffs (or your favourite cereal)
  • Maple syrup, to drizzle (optional)
  1. Spread nut butter on apple wedges then sprinkle with rice puffs.
  2. Drizzle with maple syrup if you like, and serve.
