Peanut Butter Apple Rings {kid friendly}

This is an easy kid friendly, adult friendly, and husband friendly snack.  

When I need a quick and healthy snack to feed a crowd I break out the apples, peanut butter, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, and nuts and call the kids to help assemble.

It’s a great way to get the kids in the kitchen to learn some culinary skills, socialize with mom, and just have some fun together.  

There is no strict recipe for this snack and when your creative juices get flowing it can be quite fun to see how many variations you can come up with.  

Peanut Butter Apple Rings


  • all natural peanut butter
  • apples, sliced into rings
  • unsweetened grated coconut 
  • chocolate chips
  • nuts: pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts (optional) 


  1. Spread peanut butter on sliced apples and top with your favorite toppings. 

Easy huh?  I generally slice the apples and let all the kids have fun assembling, even down to the 18 month old who tends to eat more than he assembles.  It’s a great way to get those 3, 4, and 5 year olds to fine tune those motor skills and help mom and dad in the process, giving them a sense of self-worth and responsibility.

Call the kids into the kitchen, make some peanut butter apple rings and then take them to your play date, or take a plate full to daddy and watch your kids beam with pride as they see the fruit of their hands being enjoyed by others.
