Kids will have a bloomin’ good time eating these apple blossoms. Whether for breakfast or an afternoon snack, this healthy treat is sure to please.

Ingredients

  • 1 Lil Snappers apple
  • 3 ounces vanilla-flavored, Greek style yogurt, or as preferred
  • 2 teaspoons granola
  • Chopped nuts (if desired)

Directions

  1. Place an apple corer/slicer on top of apple and carefully press down, from top stem through core, leaving just a little bit of the bottom of the apple intact (this will help hold the “petals” (slices) of the apple together). Carefully pull the corer/slicer back up from the fruit (pushing slices down through cutter to help release it from the fruit). Using kitchen scissors, carefully snip the core out of the center of the apple. Draw slices back in together to reform apple shape and transfer to serving plate or shallow bowl. Release slices of apple and gently fan out to resemble petals of a flower.
  2. Spoon yogurt into center of apple blossom and sprinkle with granola and some chopped nuts, if desired. Serve immediately. To eat, pull petals (apple slices) from blossom and dip into yogurt.

Note: Placing the Apple Blossom on a large, flower-shaped cupcake holder makes for a nice garden-like presentation.
