Whole30 Apple Monsters

Autumn @wholefoodfor7

Ingredients
  

  • 4 granny smith apples
  • 4-5 strawberries
  • ¼ cup Whole30 compatible sunflower seeds I get raw ones from the bulk bins at Winco
  • 2 bananas the smaller the better!
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • ¼ cup compliant almond butter or other nut butter, or sun butter for nut-free

Instructions
 

  • Cut the apples into large wedges. On the skin side of the wedges, cut an almond shaped slit out of the apple to expose the flesh and make the “mouth.”
  • Push 4-5 sunflower seeds into one side of the “mouth”, using the pointy end of the seed to stab into the apple. These will be your “teeth.”
  • Spread almond butter onto the side of the “mouth” that doesn’t have the seed “teeth.”
  • Cut the stem off the strawberries and slice vertically to create “tongue” slices. Place a strawberry “tongue” onto the almond butter of each monster apple.
  • For the eyes, peel a banana and then slice small circles off the end. Use almond butter to attach a raisin for the pupil of the eye and then attach the banana eye onto the monster with more almond butter. We loved making both two eyed and one eyed mosters!
  • Serve immediately (if not, you will need to brush the banana slices and apples with a little bit of lemon juice to prevent from browning too fast).

    • Thank you! My boys loved that they could make these themselves and then promptly devoured them!
