On The Run: Cinnamon Apple Snack Attack

Sometimes days get overwhelming between classes, studying, meeting up across the Quad, or headed to practice. And, it is super easy to resort to high carb junk food from the vending machine or cafeteria as a filler between meals. Move along!


Keep a few simple ingredients in your pantry for 'On The Run' moments during your busy college day! The Pioneer Woman recently posted one of her family's 'go to' snacks while hitting the ski slopes this winter. 

See what you think! Simple. Tasty. Filling.

Cinnamon Apple Snack Attack

Equipment:
Regular, or toaster, oven

1. Wash your hands and the apple.
2. Preheat toaster oven to 350F degrees.
3. Core & slice apple. Cut into thin slices. 



4. Spread peanut butter on each muffin half and layer with apple slices.
