  • 1 large red or green apple (8 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon Santa Cruz Organic® Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Santa Cruz Organic® Strawberry Fruit Spread
  • 1 tablespoon granola


  1. CUT two 1/2-inch thick slices from widest section of apple. Core one of apple slices with 1-inch heart cookie cutter. Remove seeds from remaining slice, if necessary.
  2. SPREAD top of solid apple slice with peanut butter and fruit spread. Top fruit spread with granola, placing along outside edge, so only fruit spread is seen through cutout. Top with remaining apple slice forming sandwich. Squeeze sandwich together gently.
  3. To keep apples from discoloring mix 2 tablespoon water with several drops of Santa Cruz Pure Lemon Juice. Brush onto both sides of apple slices.
