These Apple Rounds make for the perfect after school snack!

What is one sure sign of fall? Honeycrisp Apples! Those sweet, delicious treats make plenty of appearances around our home this time of year. I love buying them for my picky eaters because they enjoy them too.
This past week, I was anxious to try this recipe idea for Apple Rounds with Smucker’s because I had a few Honeycrisp apples to use. Did you know that Smucker’s offers a natural line of products?
These frequently appear in our home as I have been slowly transitioning to natural food products and quickly moving to foods with no high fructose corn syrup. I am very thankful for these products from Smucker’s that allow me to feed my family affordable, good quality jams.
I was actually shocked to see how many different varieties are offered in the natural line. One that I am anxious to use on a bagel with a little cream cheese is the Cherry Tart. Can you imagine how delicious that will taste in the morning with a cup of coffee? I know what I’ll be having for breakfast tomorrow.
In the meantime, I have been struggling to find some good after school snacks that will hold my kids over until dinner time. We usually get home within about an hour or two of dinner, so I want them to be satisfied but not filled up on junk food during that time and then too full for dinner.
These Apple Rounds were just the ticket to a good after school snack. They had the health factor plus a little bit of chocolate chips adds a little sweet treat on the apple cake. The Honeycrisp apples are so sweet too and juicy, they taste like candy. The best part though? I used the Smucker’s Blackberry spread to coat the apples with, then I topped it with crunchy peanut butter and sprinkled them with oats and chocolate chips. There is no recipe needed for this one, it’s simple and no-baking required.
These little snacks were heavenly.
I could have just skipped dinner all together and snacked on these all night.
