Apple Pie for Breakfast!

I love taking anything traditional and putting a little twist on them. Just something that people wouldn’t necessarily expect to make things interesting. This morning, it was apple pie. Yesssssssss. Who doesn’t love a good apple pie?!

I took some of the basics of breakfast as well as apple pie and just mushed them together to see what would happen, and good things happened. Give it a try when you are looking to spice up your morning!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 a Granny Smith Apple                                               2 English Muffins

1/2 Cup Peanut Butter                                                    1 Tablespoon Smart Balance Butter

1 Tablespoon of Sugar                                                   1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Directions:

1. Split a toasted english muffin in half and top each half off with peanut butter. I used homemade peanut butter that I wanted to try out from the supermarket but any brand should work fine.

 

2. Slice your apples up and put a few slices on each half. If you don’t like granny smith, or don’t have any, try a red apple. It’s closer to the traditional apple pie recipe. Granny Smith is just what I had lying around.

 

3. In a small dish, add the butter, sugar and cinnamon. Microwave for 15 seconds.

 

4. Drizzle this on top of you apples. Don’t go too crazy because this obviously isn’t an extremely nutritious dressing. I only used about half on 4 halves.

And Eat UP!

Some other options for the topping are honey and Agave. These are much better for you than melted butter and would give you the same sweetening effect.

You can also try some light brown sugar as opposed to regular white sugar. It would get you even closer to that authentic taste.

Let me know what you guys think and if anyone gives it a try!

Happy Eating!

    Awesome idea! I make peanut butter sandwiches on the thin sandwich bread as a morning snack everyday and have an apple on the side. Never thought of combining them! I am definitely trying this out!
