After School Snack Ideas: Cinnamon Raisin Stuffed Apples Recipe

Disclosure 1AfterSchool-1

Now that the weather is getting cooler, it’s nice to have a warm and comforting after school snack for Lucas. This is especially true on baseball practice days. Some warm food in his belly helps get him through practice until dinner. One of his favorites snacks (and one the entire family loves) are Cinnamon Raisin Stuffed Apples – it is the perfect fall treat! The Kellogg’s Mini Wheats, raisins,  cinnamon, and apple juice meld with the softened, warm apple to produce what really almost resembles an apple pie or apple crisp. Sometimes we like to serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a bit of vanilla yogurt. The bonus is that while it tastes like dessert – it is actually very low calorie, healthy and nutritious. A+ in my book!
