Apple Pie Yogurt Bowl

I don’t know about you, but rarely an afternoon passes when I am not hungry by 3:30.

My afternoon snack must meet a lot of requirements. It needs to be healthy, satisfying, slightly sweet, and make me feel more energized so I don’t fall susceptible to the siren song of an afternoon nap.

Okay, that last part isn’t always true. I’m a huge fan of an afternoon power nap and consider it an accomplishment when I don’t take a 30 minute snooze break in the middle of the day. Charlie, however, loves afternoon naps.

Now that the temperatures are significantly dropping (why does the Weather app tell me it’s a low of 22 degrees today?), I also want my afternoon snack to be warming. There is something so distinctly comforting about warm food in winter. I’m not even talking about traditional comfort foods – a big plate of roasted vegetables and chicken is utterly comforting for me.

Just not for a snack. As healthy as I try to eat, I’m just not one of those people who can easily choke down vegetables as a snack.

This apple pie yogurt bowl meets all of my dessert requirements, including the seasonal addition of being warm. The apple offers filling fiber, the peanut provides a touch of satisfying healthy fats, and the yogurt gives me enough protein that maybe, just maybe, I won’t fall asleep five minutes later (no promises). Plus, the cooked cinnamon apples taste reminiscent of an apple pie!

Best of all, this snack is easy to make! I used my stovetop to cook the apples, but if you are at school or the office you can quickly bake them in the microwave for about one minute on high (or until they reach the desired texture). If you cook it on the stove, use a bit of butter or olive oil to lubricate the pan so the apples don’t stick.

Feel free to substitute almond butter, cashew butter, or other nut butters in place of the peanut butter! 

This can also make a great breakfast! If you’re like me and need a few more carbs at breakfast, just add a bit of whole grain cereal.
