Sweet Apple Squares

Sweet Apple Square


I love purchasing my apples from my ‘apple man’ at the local farmer’s markets.  Apples to match the season, no wax, no pesky stickers. My children inhale them as fast as I can wash them so I usually run out of apples before I do week. So it came as a big surprise to me last week to find four spheres of crunchiness left in my crisper drawer.  

Excellent - a good excuse to turn them into a school snack!

Using the base recipe for ‘Sweet Squares’ from my cookbook, The Unwrapped Lunchbox, I came up with this delish addition to pack up for school.  I possibly packed it for work too!

There’s 65 recipes in the book - all nutrient dense, lunchbox friendly and kid tested … plus an anecdotal story or two!  You can grab your copy here!

In the meantime, why not whip this one up over the weekend and have a week’s worth of snacks to pack for the kids!
