Chocolate-Granola Apple Wedges Recipe

In my quest to eat a little better, I have to come up with some healthy snacks! I work from home, so most of the time my meals and snacks are at home. Which is a pro and a con all at the same time! I know I need to eat more fruit and veggies, so when I saw this quick and easy snack in Cooking Light, I knew I had to try it. Plus, it seemed like a fun way to get my 6 year old to eat fruit after school!

These were super easy to make. And I could see adapting these in lots of fun different ways. I added a few sprinkles to my granola for color and fun, since I was appealing to a 6 year old. Chopped up nuts, other cereals, dried fruit, M&M’s, so many ways you could make these. I even used a little caramel for a few slices, because I had a handful of caramel baking bits in my cupboard. I made these in the middle of the day, so I drizzled a little lemon juice on the apples so they wouldn’t turn brown before my son came home from school. They were a definite hit when he got home, and will be made again!
