Apple, PB & Granola Sandwich

Does this breakfast scream fall or what!?

Apple Sandwich Stacks

With all of the hullabaloo (fun word!) about pumpkin popping up around the blog world, apples, another autumn staple, sometimes fall to the wayside.

Not today!

Bring back the apple! πŸ˜€

Last week my friend Betsy sent me a link to a recipe for apple sandwiches, featured on Whole Foods’ website.

The minute I clicked the link I knew I had to recreate the fine lookin’ fruity sandwiches.

This morning I got to work, slicing an apple into horizontal slices before carefully cutting around the core to pop it out. (Yes, and apple corer would work wonders here, but I don’t have one. My apple corer also slices the apple, which is phenomenal, but doesn’t work for this particular recipe.)

Once I had several apple slices ready to go, I quickly ate all but four, because that’s all the recipe required and I was hangry!

I then topped two apple slices with about a tablespoon of peanut butter each before sprinkling the nut butter with ginger granola that I purchased from Whole Foods last night.

PB + Granola

Open-Faced Apple Sandwich

I topped the granola and peanut butter covered apple slice with the remaining nakie apple slice to seal the deal.

Autumn Apple

While making the apple, peanut butter and granola sandwiches, I enjoyed a peanut butter finger as did this little one…

My body is 95% Bones & 5% Peanut Butter

She needed the extra fuel after our 2.5 mile walk this morning and I’m not about to deprive someone who craves a lil’ pb. That’s just evil.


BodyPump, will you ever get old?

I sure hope not because that class always is a good workout and makes me do exercises I despise but know are highly effective (squats, lunges).

Today’s class was a great one and included the song “Now You’re Gone” by Basshunter during the shoulder track. That techno gem is my favorite BodyPump song everrr. (Ross, I figured you might appreciate that one too! πŸ˜‰ )

Now it’s time to get to work, my friends!

Let’s start this week on a good note. Happy Monday!
