CULINARY TWIST: Guilt-free snacking!
The shape of apple rings presents an opportunity to make healthy, energy boosting snacks that will satisfy sweet cravings! Spread peanut butter, or the nut butter of your choice, over the surface of a ring. Add chopped nuts, shredded coconut, chocolate shavings, and/or fresh fruits over the nut butter to create delicious after school snacks, midday treats, or simple desserts! If you’re looking for a chocolate-fix, use store bought chocolate-hazelnut spread in place of the nut butter.
As with most dried fruits, you can also use your apple rings in granola/trail mixes, cereals, baked goods, and even savory dishes. Pairing apple rings with baked hams or poultry dishes adds wonderful flavor. Dried apples also hold their shape while tenderizing in slow-cookers or braised dishes.
