I have taken the classic apples and peanut butter snack into my kitchen lab, tweaked it just a smidge, and created a monster for those with a nut allergy. I call them Sun Butter and Apple Jack-O-Lanterns (cue evil laugh). Anyone else get the image that I’m sitting on my couch with wild hair and crazy eyes, laughing like a crazy moron? Well, I haven’t washed my hair today and I do have an eye twitch so I guess it’s partially correct.

This is not to discuss my personal hygiene habits here so let’s move on and talk about these ADORABLY scary apple slices. Meh, I don’t even want to talk about them, I just want to eat them… Join me? They are the perfect snack for afterschool, upon waking in the morning, or even for that moment you need a sweeter treat. If you can eat nuts, try this with peanut or almond butter and add a fun spider to the apples with a nondairy chocolate chip and melted chocolate for the legs.

awesome! I send sunflower seed butter/apple sandwiches with my son to school! He would love these halloween shapes next time. Thanks for the halloween inspiration and ideas!
That would be so cute! You are such a fun mom 🙂
What is sun butter? Is it a brand name? I’ve never heard the term before.
Hi June! Sun butter is sunflower seed butter. You can make it at home or find it at any health store. I got mine at Trader Joes 🙂
Hmmm…wonder if the girls would try these? They aren’t big fans of sunbutter but I bet I might be able to add some chocolate chip spiders to entice them?????
You know, I’m not a big fan either. I got mine at Trader Joes at it’s full of sugar and taste kinda gross to me. If I’m eating nut/seed butter, I don’t want anything extra in it. Just the nuts/seeds and a touch of oil if needed. I remember making my own at home once and it was much better. Heck, just give them some nondairy chocolate chips and call it a day 🙂
oh my god.. death by cuteness. you know t make these even more scary, i will just keep them out in my yard for 5 minutes. there will be real spiders on them 😉 hihihihi
Or my yard too. They are coming out like crazy lately. Eeeeek! xo
