This snack idea came from a photo shoot, let me explain.
Every photo shoot is catered whether it is in NYC, Paris or the middle of nowhere; but not every caterer is good. Let me rephrase that, most caterers on set suck for lack of a better word.
So when you come across a caterer that has good food, it’s as if you’ve never eaten before and everyone on set needs to consume everything as fast as possible (well that’s how I feel at least).
There is one caterer in NYC (sorry I wish I knew their name because I really want to give them credit) that is really good. One of items they have for their breakfast spread are these apple peanut butter granola bites. Of all the things that are offered in that breakfast spread, these go the fastest.
I usually put two on my plate (with other stuff) because I don’t want to be greedy, even though I want to put about 4-6 on my plate. Then if everyone has eaten their first helping, I will usually go back and see if there are any left. They are just that good.
Check out the step-by-step video on how to make them at the bottom of the post.
- Small bowl of granola (whichever kind you like)
- Peanut Butter (I like smooth)
- 1 Granny Smith Apple sliced horizontally
If you have an apple corer (I don’t) use that to remove the core before you slice the apple horizontally. If you don’t have an apple corer like me, I sliced the apples in disk like shapes and then used a sharp knife to cut a little triangle to remove the core of each slice.
Apply a good amount of peanut butter on the apple slice.
Dunk the slice peanut butter side down into the bowl of granola or sprinkle the granola on top if you don’t want to use the bowl. If after you have dunked it, there are areas that the granola did not stick, sprinkle extra granola on top and pat it down a bit, you don’t want granola flying all over the place when you pick it up to eat.
