Try Gala, Fuji, Pink Lady or Granny Smith apples, which go well with the nut butter. You may also want to try cinnamon raisin bread or whole wheat wraps open-faced at home and toast in a toaster oven before serving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon cashew butter, almond butter, or sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 whole wheat or multigrain pita pocket
  • 1/2 small apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Spread cashew or almond butter inside the pita 1/2. Arrange apple slices inside and drizzle with tahini and honey. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

This sandwich packs a nutritional punch with plenty of protein, fiber, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, B-complex vitamins, calcium and other minerals.
