Apple Slice Sandwiches

These Apple Ring Sandwiches are my kid’s current summertime obsession! They’re sweet, juicy, and so fun to fill with our favorite toppings and ingredients. Almond Butter and hemp seeds in the middle create a nutritious snack or even lunch that’s totally filling. You could also spread them with Vanilla Frosting or Chocolate Frosting and a sprinkle of Chocolate Granola for a sweet dessert treat that tastes indulgent!

Vegan Apple Sandwiches

Creating fun and healthy snacks is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. I’m always so interested to see which snacks they love and are drawn to! Back-to-school season is almost here, and even though we’ve been doing remote learning for over a year now, I’m still brainstorming fun and healthy snack ideas for the house. I stock up on must-haves at my local Sprouts anytime I’m developing a recipe! Their foods keep my learners fueled and full throughout their busiest school days. For this recipe I used crispy, flavorful apples from the produce section, and I love their bulk section for nuts and seeds as I create nut butters and fillings.

All About Apples

An apple a day is always a good idea! Apples are full of powerful disease-fighting nutrients and health benefits! They keep you hydrated, they’re low in calories, fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free, and full of fiber and vitamin C. Vitamin C helps keep your gums and teeth healthy, so they keep the doctor and the dentist away! I wrote an article about the health benefits of apples in The Washington Post a couple years ago with even more apple information.

How to Core an Apple

I use an apple corer to quickly and cleanly remove apple cores. After that, I just slice them! You can play with the thickness of the slices to see what you like best. If you don’t have an apple corer, slice the apples whole and then carefully cut or scoop the core pieces out.

How to Keep Apple Slices from Browning

If you want to prep these apple ring sandwiches ahead of time, put one cup of water and one tablespoon of lemon juice in a bowl and soak the slices for a couple minutes. Drain them, make your sandwiches, and pop them in the fridge! The acid in the lemon will keep them from turning brown.

Apple Ring Sandwiches

Description

Apple Ring Sandwiches have endless filling options, so you can create nutritious and savory filling or a sweet treat that everyone craves.


Ingredients

Scale

For the “sandwich”

  • 2 medium sweet red apples (I love Honeycrisp), cored and sliced into 1/4 inch rings 
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced into 1/4 inch rings 
  • optional: lemon half to prevent browning (see notes)

Filling Ideas:

More garnish ideas/options for inside or outside the sandwiches


Instructions

  1. Select your fillings and spread 2 tablespoons on one apple ring half.  Top with the other apple ring to form a sandwich.  
  2. Add optional garnishes on the outside of the sandwich (or inside if you prefer!).  We love to drizzle the fruit dip overtop and sprinkle with cinnamon and granola.  Have fun with it, make it your own and experiment with different combinations or with whatever you have on hand.  

Notes

Each apple yields about 6 apple ring slices or 3 sandwiches.  Usually I prepare one apple (3 sandwiches) per child as a snack.  

If you want to prep these apple ring sandwiches ahead of time, put one cup of water and one tablespoon of lemon juice in a bowl and soak the slices for a couple minutes. Drain them, make your sandwiches, and pop them in the fridge! The acid in the lemon will keep them from turning brown.
