Kid-Approved Apple Slices With Peanut Butter, Coconut Flakes, and Chocolate Chips

You can seriously make this recipe for apple slices with peanut butter, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips in less than 5 minutes. That’s fabulous news for you if summer break is rapidly approaching and you have children like mine who want to eat 24/7. I guess all that fresh air and sunshine makes them super hungry. Who knows.

If this recipe for apple slices with peanut butter, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips looks familiar, it’s probably because you saw me mention it in my Once Again Nut Butter review. The company hooked me up with a bunch of samples a few months ago, but this post isn’t sponsored by them. However, I have some affiliate links for Target and other companies scattered throughout this post, and the FTC says I need to warn you that I earn money if you buy anything from my links. My kids like electricity and running water, so feel free to buy lots of stuff lol.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about these apple slices with peanut butter, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips again. I’m super picky about my chocolate chips, so I use the mini version of Enjoy Life chocolate chips. These mini chocolate chips are vegan and non GMO, which is awesome. I buy them at Target, but you can also get them from Amazon.com.

Here’s what they look like:

I use the mini chips for this recipe, but the company also makes regular chocolate chips and chunks of chocolate. The chocolate chunks are amazzzzzing in peanut butter cookies, but let’s try to stay on topic here.

Okay, grab your peanut butter, a couple apples, some coconut flakes, and plenty of chocolate chips. You’ll also need a knife and a cutting board.

Core your apples and cut them into circles. You can also cut each apple into avocado-style slices, but my kids prefer the circles. It makes it easier for them to pretend they’re eating cookies.

Using a spoon or knife, smear a generous amount of peanut butter onto each apple slice.

Did you lick the spoon? I’m not here to judge.

Sprinkle coconut flakes and mini chocolate chips on the peanut butter. Beautiful.

Admire your handiwork because you are so awesome in the kitchen. Look at you making delicious vegan snacks like a boss!

If your kids love these tasty treats (they will), save money on peanut butter by redeeming rebates at Ibotta. I see rebates for peanut butter on there all the time.

I’m going to go ahead and include a recipe box for these apple slices with peanut butter, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips even though you probably don’t need one. It’s pretty hard to mess up this recipe.

    This is my favorite apple snack too! I also prefer the mini chips – I didn’t know this brand was vegan and non gmo – I’m going to give them a try! Thanks!

    That looks as satisfying as a candy bar but a lot more healthy! I’d probably dust some cinnamon on the apple, too. =)

    This is a fun way to make kids eat vegetables and fruits. One can just swap the peanut butter with Almond butter for some kids that are allergic to peanut.
