Silly Apple Bites 

Ingredients:

  • 2 green apples, each quartered
  • sunflower butter
  • 32 sunflower seeds
  • 2-3 strawberries, sliced
  • 1-2 homemade googly eyes per apple bite

Method:

  • Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth. Don’t worry about perfection, you are filling this gap with sunbutter anyway so if you cut too deep, you can always just cover it up and no one will know.
  • Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of sunflower butter.
  • Place 4 sunflower seeds on the top of the “mouth” for the teeth.
  • Place 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth for the tongue.
  • “Glue” each eye above the mouth with a dab of sunbutter to stick.
  • Serve with a smile.
