Peanut butter is one of those thing that I think that you can couple with just about anything. I have always loved peanut butter… peanut butter & jelly, peanut butter on celery, peanut butter with bananas & one of my all time favorites peanut butter & apples. If you have never tried it, it may sound strange, but it is a wonderful combination.
My daughter in one of her unusual requests, asked for an apple pie & watermelon this morning for breakfast. It got a chuckle out of me & then got me thinking, an apple pie did sound good. I decided on an apple crisp instead & while in the midst of making it, started thinking about my favorite snack. This resulted in a fruity peanut buttery treat.
Peanut Butter Apple Crisp
5 Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of quick oats
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of melted butter or margarine
3 Tbsp of creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp of salt
Ice cream or whipped cream for an optional topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mix all dry ingredients. Add the peanut butter & melted butter. Mix well using a fork to smash the ingredients together. Do this until the mixture is crumbly & well blended.
Peel, core & slice the apples & place slices in a 9 1/2 inch round baking dish. Add the peanut butter crumble over the apples evenly. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool slightly & serve warm topped with ice cream or cream. Enjoy!
My girls love peanut butter, so may need to try this for them soon. Did Mai have it? Wondering if my picky eater who does love peanut butter would eat this.
Mai had not tried it by the time this posted but had a little this morning after her breakfast. Because it is dessert, she of course loved it. It was funny actually, she took her first bite and said “Oh Man!” and then grabbed another bite. Lol

I’m not a huge fan of Peanut Butter (weird, I know) but both my husband and daughter would LOVE this.
I like it too much. It is one of my weaknesses.
