Sliced Apple with Almond Butter and Toasted Coconut July 29, 2011

Sliced Apple with Almond Butter and Toasted Coconut

Jamie says:  Whew!  I reached a milestone today.  I submitted my HUGE portfolios (yes, plural) for my Master of Science – Dietetic Internship program and my five classmates and I hosted the nutrition education conference we’ve been planning for the past 7 months.  Only one week until graduation!   Look out world, here I come!

Sliced Apple with Almond Butter and Toasted Coconut

Ingredients:

  • 1 organic gala apple
  • 1 Tbsp sweetened coconut (Baker’s)
  • 2 Tbsp almond butter

Directions:

  1. Core and slice apple with an apple slicer on a cutting board.  Spread sweetened coconut flakes on a small plate.  Microwave coconut for 45 seconds.  Spread almond butter on apple slices.  Press apple slices into the toasted coconut.  Serves: 1.  Enjoy!

The hearty nut taste of the almond butter nicely complements the crunchy sweet apple and toasted sweetened flakes.  Yum!

  • Nutrition note:  Trying to decide which foods to buy organic (and spend the extra money on)?  Check out the EWG’s dirty dozen list.  Apples were number one on the list!
