Apple Shake-Ups

on September 24, 2013


We’re working our way through those bags of apples here! Apple Shake-Ups is something we’ve been making since the kids were toddlers. This shows up at the breakfast table a few times a week and sometimes we have them for an afternoon snack. It’s also an easy thing for kids to make on their own and even toddlers can do the “shake-up” part. Using toothpicks to eat them somehow also makes it more fun!


~Apple, peeled and chopped into bite sized pieces
~Wheat germ
~Honey or Caramel sauce (optional)

Put wheat germ and cinnamon (we use about a 2:1 ratio, wheat germ to cinnamon) into a container with a cover, add the chopped apples, cover the container and shake until the apples are evenly coated. Using toothpicks, dip the coated apples in honey or caramel if desired, or just eat them as is.
